Great daily devotion Sep 13, 2005
This book consists of in-depth devotions for each day of the week. It's a little different then most daily devotions because it forces the reader to take a deep look at the meaning of the scripture being reviewed for that day. There is a devotion for each day on Mon-Fri and then there is a review of the week's devotions/scriptures on Sat-Sun.
If you are wanting to gain a more intimate understanding of God's Word..this book is for you.
Well written, thought provoking and hard hitting... Nov 21, 2002
Working in ministry myself, I have stacks of devotional materials that don't keep my interest. They don't have any fresh, interesting or inspiring moments while reading, rather use the same passages and parables. That's not the case with Tony Evans' book. I ordered it about a year ago in hopes to find a challenging devotional book that would deal with tough questions, as well as be a daily read for me. I've used this book many times when meeting with collegues, and each time someone asks for the title & author to order it themselves. The format is basic and non-threatening for new believers, as well as educational for life-long Christians...I can't recommend it enough. His "Thoughts for the day" are great to reflect upon. Buy the book if you're wanting a daily lesson or reminder of where, why and how God is love.
Great book! Feb 17, 2001
This book will keep you focused. It only takes a few minutes a day, and the message is powerful! Tony Evans has you read a passage from the bible, then he explains the lesson it contains. Each day one page, and is based on a 5-day week, with a page of 'reflection' for the weekend. He uses today's language and is very easy to understand. I highly recommend it for anyone who is trying to digest the true word of Jesus.
Tired of failing to have time for God? Get this book. Jun 14, 1999
For years and years I have been told quiet times with God are absolutely essential to walking with Christ. I could never get into a pattern of doing this. This book is the difference. Dr Evans has a year of growing a walk laid out so well, that now it is my routine. He has a beautiful way of zinging you so that you really reflect all day. A fabulous devotion book. I wish more were this plain spoken
Excellent devotional book ! Dec 14, 1998
Dr. Evans doesn't play around in these devotionals. He takes God very serious and so should we. This book is very time friendly without trivializing your time with God.
