It’s an old book but still relevant today. Contains so much wisdom and practical strategies to improve ones life. People complain that it’s too Bible centred and ‘preachy’. Well that’s their loss. Have they another way to improve their lives? Do they make other people’s lives better with their ‘opinions?’ I’m not ‘a Christian’ but with all the problems in the world today it needs something powerful to shift people’s negative attitudes and mindsets. People who scoff at using prayer and asking God’s help should look up the congregation that “moved a mountain” through the power of believing in prayer to solve an ‘impossible’ problem. ( )
