  5. Camilla Dickinson, 1951
  6. A Winter's Love, 1957
  7. Meet the Austins, 1960
  8. A Wrinkle in Time, 1962 (I know it makes some crazy that L'Engle wrote science fiction with Christian twists and turns -- it's not "modern" in it's clear, linear apologetic, that's for sure.)

  10. The Twenty-Four Days Before Christmas, 1964
  11. The Arm of the Starfish, 1965
  12. Camilla, 1965
  13. The Love Letters, 1966 (I found this one accidentally and have enjoyed it more than once. The first time was over Spring Break in Johnson City, Tennessee. I also was introduced to southern sweet tea that week. Hmmmmmm. It was good.)

  27. A Swiftly Tilting Planet, 1978
  28. The Weather of the Heart, 1978 (I believe that this is the first thing of L'Engle's I ever read -- a collection of her poetry.)
  29. Ladder of Angels, 1979
  30. The Anti-Muffins, 1980
  31. A Ring of Endless Light, 1980
  32. Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art, 1980 (I read this as a freshman at Bethel. As an art major it was life changing.)

    "Stories are able to help us to become more whole, to become Named. And Naming is one of the impulses behind all art; to give a name to the cosmos we see despite all the chaos… When we look at a painting or hear a symphony or read a book and feel more Named, then, for us, that work is a work of Christian art. But to look at a work of art and then to make a judgment as to whether or not it is art, and whether or not it is Christian, is presumptuous. It is not something we can know in any conclusive way. We can know only if it speaks within our own hearts and leads us to living more deeply with Christ in God." (from Walking on Water)
