Wisdom of the Sadhu - book review

So I really liked reading Wisdom of the Sadhu, Teachings of Sundar Singh. It's a collection of parables, stories and teachings from the sadhu, or holy man, Sundar Singh.
It's refreshing to pick up a spiritual book and read from a perspective of someone who likely lived in more of the lifestyle of Christ. Singh was a wander who kept few possessions and no home. The teachings in this book are so Christ inspired and so similar to the original teachings and parables of Christ.
Singh was stoned, more than once, for his belief in Christ and conversion (from Sikhism to Christianity). Sadly, he was ostracized further, by Christians when he began his formal Anglican education; Singh was radically following after Christ and many didn't understand him. He returned to the life of a wandering mystic, teaching a leading others in the ways of Christ.
Wisdom of the Sadhu is a really nice compilation of Singh's teachings and would be a nice daily reader, as it is written for contemplation. I found each segment, story, teaching or conversation to be incredibly thought provoking and laden with wisdom to chew on for days.
I recommend this book for anyone.
