There are many, many wonderful books to read, too many for one lifetime. So, while I do occasionally read fiction or the classics (Jan Karon, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy & others), I prefer to immerse myself in those works that are "transformational". The Imitation of Christ, Augustine's Confessions, Brother Lawrence and others.

So it is that I come (and it seems much too late) to a small but powerful & beautiful book titled, A Testament of Devotion, by Thomas R. Kelly. I hesitate to say this is THE book I most highly recommend among them all, because each author may speak God's truth for a particular season of our lives. And I suppose God knew this book was for this time for me personally? That said, I do recommend this "little" book for anyone desiring to go "deeper" in their search for the heart of God. It is one of those resources that one can come back to again and again along the road.
