I thought this was a great book. It really makes you think about our everyday life pleasures that most all of us take for granted and we go on with our spoiled lives and fuss about the craziest thing's when we all should be as obedient as these people in this book. Very little to know one I know would actually make sacrafices or give up earthly treasures for Jesus. Yeah we try to go to church on Sunday but big whooop! That is nothing. There are alot of hipicrites in the churches that should read this book. I try probably harder than some to live right but this book made me feel bad about my relationship with the man who gave it all for me.It made me want to strive in my everyday life to do better than I was doing before. No one is perfect but we can all find some way's to walk a little closer with Jesus. The book was written well and kept my attention which is saying alot because I do very little book reading usually but plan to read more often after reading this book.
