Great book giving the background of Sadhu Sundar Singh's life and the different things he encountered. This was the first part of the book and it was great to read from a fresh perspective this great man of God's story.

Sayings and parables by Sundar Singh, the sayings being edited in the form of questions and answers. The book is OK, but I find his life more interesting than his writings.
