Using this book for a women's Bible Study group and it has been easy to follow. The theme of knowing God and having him present in all we do each day has generated a lot of in depth disscusion. A wonderful and practical book.
Other than the Bible, there are a few books which have had such an impact that they actually changed something in me. This is one of them. I first read this book at a time when my "quiet time" had become a dry routine. Author Jan Johnson gently challenged me to take God beyond the box of my devotional time into every waking moment of my life, and so began a new season of growth in my walk w/ God. I recommend it highly; in fact, it's the most-loaned book in my library.P.S. This book should be accessible to both men and women, as it doesn't have the chattiness common to many Christian books by female authors.
