I own a copy

I saw this little book early in my spiritual life in my parish bookstore. I don't really know what drew me to it. It had a simple red cover with some symbol (looks like a mix between the cross and the sword) and the title "Sekošana Kristum" (Latvian for "Following Christ").* And I bought it.

I read bits and parts of it as I needed. I can't really read it all from the beginning to the end, although I certainly tried. But I don't think it's really necessary. Sometimes it's okay to skip ahead to the important bits about the Eucharist and such... It's a fantastic book.

However it's getting harder and harder to read with time, because I'm really rusty with Latvian. Not my native language, and I'm a long way from Latvia now, so I don't get to practice it... I was thinking of buying an English translation if I can find a good one.

* In fact, it was a lot like this edition with some differences - but the symbol is the same. What is it?

booklady Excellent review Karina!

Karina I'm always amazed at what reviews you find good, because to me this one does not give justice to the book. It's a very small blurb. Anyway, I decided to review another edition reusing some of my comments from BBC...
