When I became a Christian at age 40 my mentor gave me a copy of this devotional. Oswald keeps us aware of how much we can grow closer to God. I bought copies for my small group as Christmas gifts to start the new year. May we all grow in God's favor in 2016!
The devotionals are OK. However, one must overcome the long sentences and try to figure out what the author is saying. I understand how this book is a classic. Time needs to be taken to read each devotion a couple of times to understand its intent. Some of his "lessons" are taken out of Biblical context but I guess it depend on what denomination you have been brought up in as to whether this book is excellent or poor. One final point: The print size is EXTREMELY small.
