“I laughed, I wept, I praised God repeatedly in its reading. I think you will too!…This is the kind of book you can sit down and read from ‘kiver to kiver’ (and many will, too engrossed to put it down), but at the same time it is the kind you can read a little, quit, pick it up later and not miss a beat. Or you could pick it up and start reading any place: front, back or middle. We heartily recommend it!”
