Story Behind the Book
"Over the years, I have done a lot of funerals and memorial service. I have visited people who were literally at death's door, and I can tell you that when life comes to an end, there are three things that will really matter to you: faith, family, and friends. Of number-one importance will be your faith, your relationship with God. I have heard more people say with regret, 'I wish I had spent more time walking closely with God. I wish I had made more time for spiritual things.' They recognize the fact that they will stand before God Almighty. How sad it is when people realize they have squandered their lives. This book is about helping you avoid that regret." --Greg Laurie

From Publishers Weekly
Laurie, a well-received radio Bible teacher and pastor, offers a disappointing daily devotional on basic theological and life issues. Despite Laurie's dynamic on-air knack for mesmerizing audiences with spirited relevancy and uncompromising adherence to biblical principles, this text lacks depth and originality. The content covers the expected topics for Christians: prayer, holiness, faithfulness, commitment, temptations, spiritual warfare and the like. In one page-plus miniessays, Laurie includes a brief reading, Bible verse(s), an abbreviated prayer, faith action suggestions and space for personal reflections. Given Laurie's penchant for expressive teaching, many of his devotions feel stale and are sure to let down faithful listeners. However, Laurie's take on wearing the "necessary armor" for effective spiritual warfare is one highlight. His words are specific and vivid as he describes the importance of putting on the entire suit of heavenly armor, a package deal including belt, breastplate, shoes, shield, helmet and sword. As he points out, believers can't simply pick and choose which pieces to become proficient in using; rather, every Christian must learn to skillfully employ them all. Laurie has a large fan base eager for new material on important Christian living topics; sadly, this book simply does not live up to his reputation for delivering cutting-edge teaching tools. (Dec.)

Reviews - What do customers think about Because...?

--  May 13, 2009
Because is a timely devotional, full of God's truths. There is over two months worth of daily readings in subjects such as:
In Sync with God
Our Habit of Wandering
God with Skin
Where is Happiness?
Failure and Success
The Shield of Faith
And much more

The devotionals are written with the devotion part, including scripture, first, then guidelines for how to spend your prayer time. It goes on to include suggestions on incorporating the reading into your daily life, and then suggestions for adding to your prayer journal reflections, personal application, and personal prayer points.

I read the devotions with my teenagers before we started our school day, and I enjoyed them. They are very well written and meaningful. My only complaints are that there is only one devotional for the weekend, and I'm not sure if you're supposed to read the same one over on Saturday or Sunday, or forego a devotion on Sunday, since you are in church. I also would like to see places available for adding thoughts and insights as the devotion is read, but that might be in the final copy.

I recommend Because as a truly timely devotional. We will be going over it multiple times. $14.99. 320 pages.
