Wisdom of the Sadhu (Book Review)

Wisdom of the Sadhu (Book Review)

Wisdom of the Sadhu cover

What value is earthly wisdom? Who is God? Can you say you are a Christian if Christ has not changed your life? Sundar Singh was an incredible man whom I had never heard of until I read this book. His writings address life’s most urgent questions and he challenges all believers, particularly Christians in the Western world. The Wisdom of the Sadhu is a collection of Singh’s teachings which were edited and complied by Kim Comer. If you only read one book this year, this should be the one you read (but do consider reading more, please).

Sundar Singh is one of the most well known Indian converts to Christianity. Upon conversion, however, he did not take on the encumbrances of the Western world. In fact, he lived the life of a pauper and had no use for the world’s wealth. He refused material gifts and if he was forced to take them he would give them away to those in need. His life was an incredible example of holiness, purpose, and love.

The Wisdom of the Sadhu is a combination of Singh’s story, parables, and deep wisdom. He gives compelling answers to many seekers’ questions and challenges believers. It took me a few chapters to really get into this book, but then I was hooked. By the last page I was feeling a strange combination of satisfaction and challenge.

This could be a life changing book for you and I highly recommend it.
