This books is the perfect way to add depth to your spiritual journey without devoting large amounts of time. Each reading is extremely short. The book progresses through stages along the path to overcoming selfishness and loving God and others more.

I was given this book as a gift, and--in need of a daily devotional--I gave it a shot. In a lot of ways, Fr. Paone's work here really delivers. Many of the readings are convicting and encouraging, warning and uplifting at the same time. Frequently, I set the book down, and I was enlivened to face the day with vim and vigor, to turn a phrase.

But the book was not perfect. Fr. Paone frames the book as a dialogue with Christ--a dialogue in which Christ rarely quotes Scripture, occasionally speaks in
