This could be preached today. Old is new again. Murry clearly shows the heart of man. Modern or otherwise he is still the same. Christ comes alive as he points the way to a living saviour. He is not dead but alive and ready to live in our hearts. Murry' style of preaching is so easy that a child can follow it. The message is not wrought in deep theology, but in the simple message that Christ lives in us and through us. A must read for any christian.
The book is written well and can be understood by even the beginners. The chess section is well thought out and shows many good positions. Easy to follow, the only problem is the board layout. It is completely useless. If someone would spend the time and set up the board layouts as pics of some sort, this book would be a great read. In checkers you have to understand his way of board pieces with X's and O's for me it is not easy to follow. It just does not work. I would like to see this book redone with a complete set of modern board layouts. The few board plays I took the time to work out were great but difficult. I will some day do a complete reread of this book and do the board in a modern layout. Nice easy read but be prepared to do alot of work on reading his form of board setup.
