This is a classic. That's what everyone who knows about this book will tell you. But its more than that, it is a challenging book that lets you know that a deeper walk with the Lord is possible. The book is small, the practicing of it requires a lifetime. But the applying of the practices suggested, reap daily rewards, whether the times you are experiencing are good or bad.
I'm sorry, I really wanted to like this book. I had hoped that it would help to deepen my relationship with the Lord. It didn't. The material is basically repeated over and over again. It is very simplistic. I had hoped for something more indepth and practical than this. I cannot recommend this book at all.
I first found out about this book when I read a small quote from it in a book by Watchman Nee. I keep going back and reading it again and keep a copy on my desk. Reading a few paragraphs is certain to lift my spirit in a hectic day. Now I try to keep a few copies on hand to share with people as it is so inspiring and gentle and helps us to remember how near and approachable is our God.
