Lovely book. inspiring. This is a good book to share together with a small group of people seeking to deepen their connections with God.

Thomas Kelly's "Testament of Devotion" is one of the handful of short books that are long and deep in content. Each reading brings new insight as it shines light on one's present condition. Kelly speaks to any authentic spiritual tradition and opens the wisdom of the tradition. The book embodies Gandhi's statement that "Truth is God" and that all authentic spiritual traditions are roads to the one center that underlies them all.

Experience the Holy Spirit & live in the world
This book offers a practical and spiritual approach to experiencing the Holy Spirit and contact with God. Thomas Kelly is a Quaker and explains both motivation, methods and results for experiencing God. It is not a "self-help" book, but a spiritual one. At times I felt I could not reach the perfection he seemed to talk about, but he explains that this is a process, and not always directly progressive. After reading the book I realize that you can keep in almost constant contact with the Holy Spirit, God, but do not have to become a mystic isolated from the world. You do not have to be a Quaker or a Christian to get a lot of insight from this book.
