When I first saw this book, I was dating a girl that I had met at church. She had a library of books that I used to look through. Then one day a stumbled across this book that has changed my whole outlook on the bible as a whole, I mean this book has taught me how to really look at the bible and learn how to truly live by the book. This is a must get book, it is in a sense a bible in itself.
