ABSTRACT
The article presents a comparison between the books "Phantastes," by George MacDonald and "The Pilgrim's Regress," by C. S. Lewis. It says that the books show how the protagonists both travel similar paths and demonstrates their need to accept death before carrying out deeds of heroism in going back home. The authors present a journey to God, starting with following desire and ending with redemption. Moreover, the works stress that desire and action should be paired in a redemptive journey.
