Excellent, challenging book. We used it for family worship, and found the short chapters to be just the right length for our family. The strength of the book comes in its direct address. Many devotional books give pious thoughts that make everyone nod in agreement, but I’ve found few books that are as provocative and challenging as this one. The book makes direct, forceful statements about the state of your mind and heart, and because they are rooted in Scripture, the arrows hit home. Don’t despair; grace is in abundance, but it is deep grace that restores, not cheap grace that soothes hurt feelings. Great stuff. We’ll be buying and using book 2 as soon as it comes out.
