"The poet in David Ogston shines through, constantly catching one unawares with a startling use of simple words..." Tom Fleming
This collection is no superficial work, on every page there is profound and insightful thought. These prayers and mediations drill deep into the meaning of the Christian faith and from the first page they deal with the human condition the way it really is. The man behind these words was complex and compassionate so it is no surprise that these characteristics are evident on every page. When I read it for the first time I could hear David’s voice, I could feel him wrestling with God and I know that those who dip into this collection will be inspired by it. It challenges us to dig deeper and to spend more of our own time wrestling with God. The Rev John Chalmers
