A Wonderful Review of Christian Spirituality Mar 16, 2000
This book was such an uplifting work. Christians of all denominations, and non-Christians too, will find this to be a spiritually rewarding work. It caused me to honestly reflect on so many issues, and made me realize that the struggles we sometimes face are not necessarily unique - or unconquerable. The book is well written, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny (i.e., "peanut head") and very honest. The author shares himself without aires or the "holier than thou" pretenses that sometimes accompany religious writings. It was definately worth the purchase, and I'm happy to have stumbled upon it.
