In Christian Devotedness, Groves take two complementary principles from scripture and attempts to persuade the reader with other scriptures and illustrations. Some will be tempted to think that what is presented in these pages is an ideal goal that may be aimed at by some, but is never really meant to be practiced in the lives of common men. But this is the message which Jesus preached to the common man. The disciples also preached and practiced these principles. The truths in this book are enduring, not because the argument is made with great, convincing, or eloquent words, but because these are the timeless truths of God.
