Not humdrum Jan 15, 2007
Joe Stowell has a God-given gift of teaching. This shines through in Strength For the Journey. Each day's devotional is quick to read but the contnent is relevant and gives you something to chew on.
Inspiring devotional promoting impact of Word of God Feb 21, 2002
I seldom come across devotional with such a dense proportion of Scriptures ringing people's mind to walk with our Lord daily, this one is a real model. Many personal and thoughtful insights are given that encourages readers to drill the Bible and to head off a new day. For me this book is comforting and nourishing to both mind and soul. What I appreciate more is the timely touches of old-time themes like prayer, worship, knowing Christ, christian's acts, these are not very popular in our culture but still worth proclamation. This book contains an excellent (also critical) bible application point at the end of each page as a post-reading exercise, which challenges one's ability to resist mundane Christian life each day. It really impells readers to act upon the Word of God, not just read and idle and then forget the whole thing.
One of the Very best in Devotional Books Available Feb 15, 2002
I'm an unrepentant fan of Joe Stowell! I just can't help myself...the man lives what he writes, speaks, preaches, and communicates. And "Strength for the Journey" is just such an "index" of all his many encounters with the living and the Giver of Life, our gracious God.
Fitted with a catchy title, a Scripture passage, a moving devotional meditation, and a closing convicting thought, Stowell really does help the reader find "Strength for the Journey." All three-hundred sixty-five days of the year are covered, and none of them are lack-luster, boring, or trite. I've read the book (now) from cover-to-cover, and it is one of the best.
