Top Customer Reviews
It is written (following the original) as a dialogue between Christ and his disciple, and there’s a lot of applied Biblical wisdom there. I compared the two texts briefly (the original and this one), and he really seems to keep faithfully to the original rhythm and heart of the text, so it’s a very sensitively-crafted update.
If you want to read this classic text, this is by far the easiest and most pleasurable way of doing it.
