I found this book a little challenging to read due to the language used during the time period when it was written. It was also somewhat painful to read the despair and frustration expressed by the author; it is so sad that he had to struggle for so long before the Lord was finally able to convince him that, "by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8-9). However, the liberty and courage brought to the author by the realization that God's grace is greater than our sins is encouraging, thus ending the book with a positive conclusion.
This book would probably be good for anyone who is struggling with a burden of guilt or the belief that they aren't good enough for God to accept.
