5.0 out of 5 stars alive, honest, real; evidence of the Truth. October 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
many thanks to ms. price and to God for inspiring this documentation of her story that has so inspired me. we are all drawn to real struggles, real transformation, and real power. God is this power. God is real. this book made me irrevocably aware that the God of the universe cares about the smallest details of our lives and wants to pour out his unfathomable goodness, in tangible and intangible ways, on hearts that are surrendered to his care.

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring little book April 3, 2007
Here is my review from my blog, [...]

I just finished an awesome little book about one woman's spiritual struggle and adventure in the 1940s & 50s in Chicago. Her name is Genie Price and she became somewhat famous from her writing and radio work.

She had been living her own self-centered life, and always did things to extremes--she sounds so much like me! But the Lord found her, and even though she fought at first, she eventually found Him and found Life. Then she and a friend spent several intense months just learning all about the Lord and what it means to literally take Him at His word. They spent their mornings in Bible Study, prayer and silence before the Lord. Then they spent hours reading saints' works (Thomas A. Kempis, Brother Lawrence, John Wesley, etc. and many current Christian writers). They spent their afternoons in intercession (praying for others). And the Lord led them on the most adventurous life ever, working everything out for good, even their struggles.

If you can get hold of this book, I highly recommend it. This is the kind of life I seek--His Life, where I totally and completely belong to Him, and not one bit to myself. Lead me, Lord!

5.0 out of 5 stars life-changing May 19, 2000
The reality of what a carnal Christian I have been was made clear to me after reading this book. The solutions offered according to God's Word were brought home to me in such a delightful way and is helping to bring about change in my day-to-day life.
It seemed I could not grasp the reality of the truth that when I became a Christian-(born again), Christ really did come to live in me and I in Him. Eugenia Price makes it more plain to understand God's Word that says we must "die" to self daily and allow Christ that lives in us to grow. "As we decrease...He increases."
Before reading this book, it seemed like I was often defeated in my Christian walk, but now with an increased understanding of my Savior and our walk together, I am taking baby steps at living a more victorious life in Him as I am learning to trust Him more and more.

The author of this book discovered that it is a delight to learn that Jesus bears our burdens and therefore our burdens become light when they are given over to the Lord. This book is a MUST for every new Christian.

One of my grandmother's favorites that she loaned me to read and I remembered how inspiring this was when I recently went through a tough time spiritually. It is worth reading more than once.

This book is the best book I have ever read..I laughed. I cried. I so identified with the author. It became my story. I can hardly wait to read the rest of her books. She became my favorite author as a young mother and wife. I am so happy to find her again.

I loved Ms. Price's book, "What is God Like." So I bought this. I'm so glad I did. The book was a great story of redemption. This is one book you will want to share.
