Reviews - What do customers think about Seeking the Kingdom: Devotions for the Daily Journey of Faith?

Reader from NJ  Jan 9, 2000
I bought this book not being familiar with the author's prior works and was pleased to discover that it is a compendium of other books. It is organized simply and concisely in a way that enhances one's spiritual experience reading through it with additional exercises which are optional and bible readings. This book taught me a great deal about living in the Presence from an author who obviously "walks the walk". I recommend this book to Quakers and all who are seeking the Presence in their lives.
