Have you ever encountered a book and given it than once chance hoping that it would get better with the passage of timeI ve given this book my on and off attention for over a month and I m crying Uncle I made it to page 155 of 902 tiny pages on my iPhoneIf you d like to listen in on intimate conversations among perfect strangers and experience dozens of pages of stream of consciousness rambling then you ll enjoy this bookUnfortunately Mr MacDonald struggles to get to his point and loses me along the wayWhat makes this experience even worse is that the author expects us to acknowledge the importance of going deep in our spiritual lives Richard Foster is right The desperate need today is not for a greater number of intelligent people or gifted people but for deep people The author may be deep but I m unwilling to watch him dig any to get thereDisclaimer The publisher provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for writing this unbiased and forthright review
