The final 42 pages of 'Knowing God' had a profound effect on me. It was one of those instances where you are reading something at the precise moment when you are experiencing it's topic. The best advice for me from these pages: "Think against your feelings, argue yourself out of the gloom they have spread; unmask the unbelief they have nourished; take yourself in hand, talk to yourself, make yourself look up from your problems to the God of the gospel; let evanelical thinking correct emotional thinking..."

"Knowing God' is a challenging, compact, knowledge-filled book. To get the most out of it I read only a few pages at a time. I wanted to let the words and their wisdom "sink in". At times, it seemed dry but that may have been the state of my mind at the time and not the fault of the book. And personally, the final pages more than made up for any dry patches.
