pick up this book. I liked the format of going back and forth from the Scripture to the author's meditation.... and also how the applications in one section often carried forward to the next few, making it possible to meditate on the relationship of one Scripture to another. Kind of different, and I enjoyed this structure more than I thought I would. There are probably no concepts here that will be brand new to you, especially if you're a Christian..... but I found the writing vivid, clear, personal and Biblically based. The author stated, "It is my hope that you will be blessed with a deeper understanding and relationship with your Jesus", and I think this purpose is accomplished very well in this book. Thanks to the author for sharing these thoughts!
