The Imitation of Christ

by Thomas A Kempis

God's purpose in our lives is to make us more Christlike. That work requires our full surrender and death to the self life. It is a process the Lord will bring us through if we are willing to enter His purposes for our life. Once we enter the death process we become aware of the new life of Christ forming within us that started at our salvation.

This devotional presents us many thoughts that challenge us as to whether or not we are actually in the faith or are self deceived by false religious notions.

It lays out a perspective we should all have that only comes from having been in the presence of Father after having sought after Him and found Him.

I commend this work to anyone who is not satisfied with where they are at and want to get closer to the one who gave us our life.

Castle Hohenwald

by Adolph Streckfuss

I found an 1879 first (English)edition of this book many years ago and it instantly became one of my favorite books.

Taking place in the time of the Franco-Prussian war it is a romance, a war story, and a mirror on the idealized social concepts of the time.

The main characters are very interesting.

A bit wordy, but that is to be expected from a book of this time period. I highly recommend it.

Stopped after a few pages... Stilted dialog, and it could have at least been proof-read. A few spelling/grammer errors? To say a few per page is generous. More like per sentence...
