Many reminders for our daily lives as we try to go about being more "Christ-like," especially in an age where conflict/war seems to be all around us.

This is a spectacular book, written by an amazing thinker.

Some of the passages in this book have stayed in the back of my mind since my first reading. Every time I pick it up I find new meaning in phrases I highlighted months ago and have read five times already.
