Not really knowing what to expect of this book when I received it, I was pleasantly surprised.
Sundar Singh was known as one of the most famous converts to Christianity of his time. He obviously was a man of great wisdom. He passed in 1929. When he was just 16 he left his home and every comfort of home to live among the Sadhu people. This is where he learned what true Christianity is. Sadhu means holy man. Mr. Singh was known as a modern day Saint Francis, from India.
The book is similar to a devotional. There are short little chapters that are written as sort of modern day parables. They are very interesting to read. These bring a fresh perspective to parables of the Bible. The titles are creative, and are very thought provoking.
Mr Singh wandered as a holy man for 23 years, and traveled through at least 20 countries and four continents. He disappeared in the Himalayas in 1929. Many mourned his death. This gentleman touched many peoples lives.
This is a great devotional to start this upcoming new year. There are just over 20 short chapters that can be read weekly or are short enough for a daily encounter. I found these so thought provoking that I would think on them throughout the day. If you like to journal these would be perfect for getting you going.
I received this book from Plough Publishing house for free to review however I saw fit! I have not been paid to share my thoughts!
