    These meditations are worth taking time over; this isn't a book to sit down and read through.Although Thurman frequently goes in directions that don't quite resonate with me, I don't disagree with his theology. He talks of silence being an opening to God (which I agree with), though he then takes it to examination of our sin, so that we can reconcile. I'm not so much into the sin thing. I like the book as a jumping off point - a place to explore and consider ideas, rather than simply reinforcement of what I already believe.

    When I trod a dark road, alone and barely holding on to my tattered faith, Howard Thurman comes and walks with me, cares for my soul, and gives me strength. I will always be "Reading" this book. I pick it up as I am moved so to do, when the noise of this sad world is too much. The words of Thurman lead me to a quiet place, and he has often been my companion in holy silence. Thurman, and no other, is my pastor.

    One of my all-time favorite devotional books! He was the spiritual advisor to Dr. MLK and started one of the nation's first intentionally multiracial churches. We should all want to hear wisdom from someone like that. And he has this magnificent way of getting at justice through the back door with reflections about our innermost personal wrestlings in this life.

    I loved this book so much. There are some meditations struck closer to home than others, but this book helped and continues to help me through the trying times of life.

    Partway through section 3 the meditations started to change in tone and style and I lost interest, but up until then the book was full of beautiful insights.

    Howard Thurman was an insightful, gifted, progressive thinker who keenly understood the human spirit and how the divine touches our lives in profound ways. The entries in this collection were written for private corporate guided meditations 30 minutes before the Service of Worship each Sunday.I've read entries in this book dozens of times. They never get old. They always speak to my soul.

    This book blew me away. It was one of the best spiritual books I have read. I came upon it by accident. Sometimes those are the best books. Highly recommended

    Never have I read such a book of man's struggles and accomplishments in the light of God than this. While sometimes repetitive, all is forgiven in the absolute perfectly poetic phrasings of the things we each hold dearest to our hearts.

    I have read many of the meditations...."Give me the Listening Ear, the eye that is willing to see"

    Haven't read the book yet. I was listening to someone read quotes from the book and was intrigued.
