Excellent read. Lots of grammatical errors probably due to poor translation/editing/publishing. Beautiful!

This is a collection of thoughts and sermons by spiritual leader, M. Fethullah Gullen. He has a huge following! There is a lot of conversation fodder in this book, because he discusses many major themes: forgiveness, how to be a better (ideal!) person, what the world would be like if everyone lived in accordance with God's Will.

This book has a loose narrative and some of the writing is rambling.Some members of our group found it hard to follow.
