For many years friends and parishoners of Dr. Petty have been helped and inspired by this group of meditations. 10,000 copies were sold of a privately printed edition. Books of a devotional nature are apt to be too pious, too sugared, but Dr. Petty's selections are quite otherwise, vigorous and wise with the wisdom of a man who knew life and lived it among men. For private devotions, for study groups, student assemblies or Church schools, or as an extra personal gift.
