What a beautiful book. I hope my thoughts will do it justice. So many times in this life we focus on the outside of Christianity, sharing the gospel, feeding the hungry, comforting the grieving. And while all of these things are important, we can be doing them for Christ as well as the pat on the back that comes along with it. This book helps one to focus on what you do when you're alone, when no one is there to give you a pat on the back. How are you spending your time then? This is the time for you to intimately love and worship Christ. This is the time to develop an intimate relationship with Him. An intimate relationship is never truly developed in public, but in the private quiet moments when sometimes words don't even need to be spoken. This book teaches you how to just sit at the feet of The Lord and take in his wisdom and love him intimately. Praise God for this beautiful work of art. Thankyou Mr. Miller.

This is simply the finest book I have ever read! Miller reminds us that in our relationship with the Lord we do not need more speed, we need more staying power; we do not need more busyness, we need more passion. Thank you, Calvin!
