Thomas Wingfold, Curate

Book cover
By: (1824-1905)

In "Thomas Wingfold, Curate" by George MacDonald, we are introduced to a young clergyman who undergoes a transformation of faith and self-discovery as he grapples with doubt, uncertainty, and the challenges of his calling.

MacDonald's prose is thoughtful and introspective, delving into the complexities of religious belief and the struggles faced by those who dedicate their lives to serving others. The characters are richly drawn, each with their own demons to confront and lessons to learn.

The novel's exploration of faith, doubt, and redemption is both profound and engaging, inviting readers to consider their own beliefs and doubts. While the pacing may be slow at times, the depth of the storytelling more than makes up for it.

Overall, "Thomas Wingfold, Curate" is a thought-provoking and spiritually uplifting read that offers valuable insights into the human experience and the search for meaning in a tumultuous world.

Book Description:
Republished in modern times as "The Curate's Awakening". A young man (Thomas Wingfold) "enters the church" through no real faith and only for want of something to do. After an encounter with a brash young atheist, he is thrown into an emotional, spiritual, and vocational crisis. Through his own doubts and through developing clarity gained from the counsel of a singular friend, he begins a slow journey toward faith, or - as he would put it - "a lovely hope."
