Since the 9th century, Christians have been writing meditations for people to use in their daily devotions. Of the thousands written, three are timeless Christian classics: Streams in the Desert (1925), My Utmost for his Highest (1924), and, my absolute favorite, How To Be a Transformed Person (1951) by E. Stanley Jones. This book is a gentle masterpiece–-365 absorbing, inspiring, inspiriting shots of sunshine and grace that fight the gravity and entropy of whatever a day may bring. Less a book than a precious gift waiting to be opened for a lifetime of tune-ups and faith-lifts.
