While the description of the book certainly came with disclaimers and qualifiers as to the reproduction quality, I didn't realize just how bad it would be with much of each page used for wide borders and the text being rather small font on a sepia or recycled paper.
Several pages were blurred and indistinct so as to be almost unreadable with underlying watermark patterns. I don't believe a lot of effort was put into producing anything more than what a simple copier would do and putting a hard cover on it. In the future, I will be careful to avoid this publisher.

Hannah Whitall Smith lived in the 1800's and yet her faith and her writings are still relevant today. She was a Quaker woman and wrote several books and I haven't found one that I didn't like. Sometimes she'll say something that just sticks with you forever, and I learn something nearly every time I read anything she wrote. It's true that times have changed since she was alive, but today's Christian can learn from her just the same.

Every believer in Jesus needs to understand the unselfishness of God that Mrs. Smith writes about. Her story about how she discovererd this unselfishness is fascinating and significant. The book would have deserved five stars, except that at points it moves from interesting to long-winded and temporarily dry. All in all, though, this was a very good book.

I have appreciated Hannah Whitall Smith's writings for a long time, and this book was all new information about how she grew up, and her spiritual journey, and issues that the Christian community worked through in the 1800's. I love biography and history, and it is interesting how Christian authors today are presenting many of the same concepts that she pioneered a hundred years ago. Her attitude about aging at the end of her life is a wonderful model too.
