I started reading this book when I lived in Hawaii. My good friend Mark showed it to me, but wouldn't let me borrow because he got it from his school library. So I looked it up on here. Oh, the joy of seeing it was free. Thomas Traherne is a poet and philosopher of the Christian faith. This book is his philosophy on the meaning of life. It's a real eye opener to his amazing outlook on life, and I think it would do the modern christian world justice to read this book.
