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!
