For anyone trying to reconcile Christian views with Eastern philosophy, this book is worth reading. An open mind and an open heart are the only pre-requisites. The simple messages conveyed throughout the book are thought-provoking, and uncannily reaffirm messages conveyed in more recently published books from the same genre of litterature. That it was first written two generations ago was enough to draw my interest; that the messages were conveyed to a woman who could have very well been a next door neighbour, or an Aunt Jessie down the street is extraordinary in itself. I have already passed the book on, and do not hesitate to recommend it to readers interested in books on spirituality.
