      A Christian Classic!, October 7, 2003
      Reviewer: William G. Covington, Jr. PhD (Edinboro, Pennsylvania)
      One reason why this powerful book has stood the test of time is because it is
      full of practical wisdom that can be applied to one's life in any culture.
      Take for example one of the opening remarks, "He that knows himself well,
      becomes vile in his own eyes, and takes no delight in the praises of men." In terms
      of living a separated life, we're told "There is no order so holy nor place so
      retired that it is without temptations or adversities." The secret to
      overcoming, he adds is through patience and true humility.
      On works of charity, he writes "For God weighs the love with which a man
      works rather than how much work he does."
      He reminds us that God knows how to turn evil into good.
      The author tells us that habit overcomes habit. In other words to overcome a
      bad habit, replace it with a good one.
      I strongly recommend this book. It is applicable to anyone wishing to live a
      more abundant life.
