Thanks for the reviews- it reminds me I have to try and do more quality faith reading, and not just my 'summer' books.   :)

I have read almost 1/2 of it so far.  I cannot say that I agree with all the statements 100% of the time, but I do argree with a lot of what is said and there is a lot of wisdom in it.  We are beginning a book study on it, led by our priest, on Wednesday evenings after service.

I had the same thoughts as well, nobody is perfect.   However, there are some real gems in the book.  Thanks for the feedback.

Christ is Risen!

I love this book and pray to Elder Thaddeus.  Like others have said, I find myself in agreeance with almost all of it; I just think that some of what he said doesn't necessarily apply to everyone in all situations.  But I cannot recommend this book enough!

Elder Thaddeus, pray for us sinners.
