This book is excellent. We used it for a 12 week study in our Sunday School class. Each week, a different couple picked a chapter and lead the class. Each chapter is about 2-4 pages long. We had some amazing discussions, and we were all truly enlightened from the content. I highly recommend it, especially for personal reading. It is an easy read and has great concepts about faith.
