A must read handbook for any Christian
This book is one of the most encouraging and insightful treatments of the Christian life available. It will encourage you, teach you, convict you and lead you to a much more sanctified life when accompanied with the power of the Holy Spirit.
Pastors must read it, unbelievers may be saved by it and it is an excellent tool for training your family at home.
You will not be disappointed if you take this book in piece by piece even over a long period of time. Each section is divided into its own book so don't be concerned about its length.
As I look over the other books I have downloaded I am disappointed knowing they are unlikely to be as helpful as this one.

A Book for the Faithful
After listening to this book I have but one question. With the Bible in one hand and this text in the other, what Christian could ever say that they knew not how to live the Christian life? I could only handle reading one chapter a day for I would spend the rest of the day weeping, wailing, repenting, and praying the God through Jesus would renew my mind, my walk, and my actions. I pray many would read this book and be saved from lukewarm Christianity.

Serious, Sombre and Soul Searching
This book needs to be listened to many times. It cannot be taken lightly. It covers many aspects of Christianity that you may not have thought about and therefore need to seriously consider.
You may or may not agree with everything discussed here, but you cannot dismiss it all either. If you are serious about the practical practice of religion (Christianity), then you need to study this carefully. Possibly in a group or with at least one theologically minded person. (Pastor, Minister, Lay-preacher, Priest)!
If you are struggling with your Christianity, you may definitely need to have someone listen to this with you, so take advantage of the 'share' option.
Either way, you will learn a great deal. This is money well spent. Commit to it - it's lengthy but worth it - and on your second pass, I'm certain that you will have made lifelong, hopefully eternal, decisions.

What did you like most about Practical Religion?
Straightforward call to self examination.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Practical Religion?
Discovering that the narrator wasn't following the text but modernizing it, no doubt for reasons of relevance.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Well, it's not a novel so it's not about individual scenes but clarity of delivery, and for this top marks, it's good enough to make me overlook the textual departures. Although substituting some other version for the KJV is distinctly annoying. However, along with Ryle's Holiness this is just excellent for exposing the deceit of the heart.
