A 365-day devotional featuring the actual spoken words of God as presented in the Bible.
Too many times the impact and grandness of the actual words God spoke, as recorded in the Bible, are lost in the telling of the story. In A Year with God, the primary focus is to allow the scriptures that contain God's dialogue and the revelations of himself to uniquely speak to the reader. The author follows each reading with insights and applications to help explain the context and nuances of the text. The unique titling of each meditation and the nontraditional themes and organization help bring God to our daily lives. Topics include:
Hope and Fear Love and Hate Perseverance and Quitting Faith and Doubt Loyalty and Betrayal Companionship and Isolation Mercy and Judgment Forgiveness and Anger Joy and Sadness Peace and Conflict.
I was very happy to review this book! I love the quote that R.P. Nettelhorst added in the very beginning :
"The best of all is, God is with us."
I think this book would be great for any Christian to own. I love how you can compare every day situations to bible passages. It's very easy to understand, making it great for all age groups. The fact that they made short daily readings instead of long tedious ones were great and kept me interested! I appreciate that the author broke down all of the sections into groups.
- Hope and Fear
- Love and Hate
- Faith and Doubt
PLUS MANY MORE!
Faith and Doubt was my favorite section because it's something that I struggle with everyday.
