This book is part of the Henri Nouwen Spirituality Series. It is a short book and well worth your time. Do you know what it means to live a spiritual life? Are you often distracted while trying to spend time alone in Bible study? The principles in this book will help you grow in your spiritual relationship with Christ. The author puts forth three areas that we can use to further our growth. I thought the book was an easy read and very easy to understand. If you are looking for a short book with easy to apply principles this is it! I gave this book 4/5 stars because I found some of the writing to be a little boring, but that is just my opinion so please do not skip the book just because I found parts of it monotonous.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
