This book is one of those devotion books that sits a little larger than a deck of cards. Each page has a day’s devotion on it. It’s meant to be read through the year, one short passage at a time. It is written in first person with Jesus being the speaker. Each day has a different purpose, but throughout the course of the readings there is repetition of content.
Most of the readings were very good and gave me at least slight pause for thought about my relationship with Jesus or my service. It is a very well written devotional for it’s type. A couple of things I didn’t care for especially. The print is not black. I’ve got several of these kinds of devotionals and this one was just harder to keep reading through because of the goldish/brown print. The other thing that I would change is that Scripture text was not included. Scripture references were, but it seems to me that part of the purpose of this type of devotional is to have everything on one page. Other than those two items, it’s nicely done, and I think I’ll continue to read it over the next year.
