Square Fish A Wrinkle in Time (Special Edition, 50th Anniversary)

Newbery Medal winner! "It has the general appearance of being science fiction, but it is not. There is mystery, mysticism, a feeling of indefinable, brooding horror. The pervading theme is love. It is original, different, exciting,"---Saturday Review. A tesseract (in case you didn't know) is a "wrinkle in time." 240 pages, softcover. Square Fish.

I bought this copy as a gift after I had read another copy. It's a good story and well written. This 50th anniversary edition is very nice.

I just completed this book and it is rather odd and I wonder why it is here on ChristianBook.com. You'd think ChristianBook.com thinks this is a Christian book. Well, it very certainly is not a Christian book. This is more closely aligned with a New Age book, with some science fiction and science fact thrown in. The strongest evidence against it is it's equating Buddah with Jesus Christ, along with Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Einstein, etc., all equally being "fighters against the "Dark Thing", the villain in the book. In addition, it has three women who can easily be considered to be witches, though not called witches. My main point here is to say, don't be fooled into believing this is a Christian book simply because Mrs. L'Engle likes to throw in a few Bible verses, more than a few being misquoted. If Mrs. L'Engle had not tried to throw together Science Fiction with Christianity, and had just stuck to Science Fiction, I'd highly recommend this book. But this throwing in of Bible verses, using them for secular purposes, is bad since there is nothing fictitious about Christianity and this book does not give the slightest indication that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be, God, and no indication that He has already defeated the villian, the Dark Thing, which is Evil personified, in the book at the cross. In the book, Jesus Christ is just a great teacher and great fighter, as we all are, against "The Powers of Darkness", which that phrase the book actually contains, not the one who defeated the "powers of darkness" once and for all at the cross.
