    It comes as no surprise that over 2 million of these have been sold, it is a gem of a book that should be beside every Christians bed. I cannot recommend this little book enough, it speaks right into the heart in a straightforward, unsentimental and compassionate way. Here is an paragraph from the last chapter:

    I highly recommend this book it is a devotional delight but sprinkled with such wonderful analogy. How God cares for us as His precious sheep and how at times our likeness to the "wooly" wonder parallels our spiritual life.
