Hello the Forum. I picked this book up at a thrift store I would be interested in hearing forum members thoughts on it.

Cheers Rob.

I remember reading a book writted by Chaplain Tiplady, perhaps it is the same one. I found it very depressing. I gave it to Rev Mark Hayden, the guy who wrote German ribbon bars. He thought it was great.

I've read his book "Cross at the Front". I don't know if it is the same book under a different title but I was not inspired by his writing. If his sermons were similar then God help his parishioners.
