This book is so valuable to me personally I read it again and again. It's not superficial, it is deep, yet worded so clear and understandable that it reaches the heart, and you find yourself loving the person Jesus Christ and in touch with the reality of His existence and eternal presence. You long to know Him better, to be closer to Him. This precious book inspires personal faith in Him, and walking with Him becomes a reality.
Here's a couple quotes picked out at random:
At His baptism when many laid eyes on Him for the first time: "But as the people looked upon Him, they saw a face where divine compassion, was marked with humility, and expressive of unutterable love. He seemed to be surrounded by an atmosphere of spiritual influence. While His manners were gentle and unassuming, He impressed men with a sense of power that was hidden, yet could not be wholly concealed. Was this the One for whom Israel had so long waited?", p. 138.
The first paragraph in the chapter, "As a Child":
"The childhood and youth of Jesus were spent in a little mountain village. There was no place on earth that would not have been honored by His presence. The palaces of kings would have been privileged in receiving Him as a guest. But He passed by the homes of wealth, the courts of royalty, and the renowned seats of learning, to make His home in obscure and despised Nazareth.", p. 68.
I never want to be without this book.
