    This is quite like a smaller version of Ryle s Holiness It s very practical, and addresses as many facets as you can think of However, while they are communicated in a way which is easy to understand, that does not mean it is easy work I was convicted throughout the whole book Definitely read this short book, but prepare for the knife.
