All of ours souls could stand to steep in the tea of faith, all of our minds should be cultivated in the garden of truth and knowledge. God is unfathomable and unknown to the vast majority of mankind. He is everywhere. He is most elusive. He is the nearest to us, if we would but know the fact. This little book is filled with many truths, an enjoyable book to read.
