This book deserves to be made widely available again. Osborne anticipated much of the findings of Eva Pierrakos, A.H.Almaas and Ken Wilber. To quote from p. 25, "Using several hundred [Christian small] groups...we began to discover...First, that a person can commit to God only that part of himself that he understands and accepts; second, that a person cannot pray effectively until he deals with his emotional barriers; third, that most of these barriers are largely unconscious...."
Osborne goes on to describe how Christian small groups can go far toward disolving these barriers
