In this chapter Dr. Senior is honest, but if you can come to share in this examination of conscience, the rest of his book will lift your heart. He does not lay heavy burdens without helping to lighten them.
I hope this chapter motivates you to read this book, rather than discourages you! This excerpt, actually, is not representative of the book. Not sure why I chose this one; it's quite depressing. The rest of the book is beautiful. Sursum corda.
