Fifteen inspirational chapters have been strung together like beads upon a necklace to form this little volume of devotional and uplifting reading. The essays have been forged out of the experiences of a pastor with his people, and are highly illustrated with anecdote and example. These illustrations may prove a gold mine for some preachers. Basically the book is written for the ordinary layman of somewhat pious frame of mind. For those who love Peale, this will ring the bell. The book does have the quality of the spoken word so that it often carries better when read aloud. The Chapter which suggests that Prayer is Dangerous could really lead us somewhere. A good book for giving, or as a traveling companion, or for meeting an occasional mood.
