A Great Spiritual Guide
For those who strive for perfection, this is a must read book!
A must have and read for the elect and lightbearer... Glory be to Jah who is glorified in every good Way. Selah
I inherited a copy of this book from my mom, which she got from her moms library. I've been unlucky in finding the same translators (Aloysius Croft and Harry F. Bolton) and publisher (Bruce Publishing Co.) but after reading the first few pages, I was not disappointed. I suggest this book to anyone who wants to renew their faith or for those who needs help finding their way.
2nd best to the bible
I found this in hardcover and Barnes n noble and have fallen in love as a perfect supplication to finding inner peace. Gives a self-discipline/philosophical approach to understanding the guidance that Jesus came to us as the word of God intended. By far the best book I've found to help calm the soul aside from the book "as a man thinketh"
