Do you look to devotional books for guidance as you seek to focus your heart on the Lord each day? If you do, you know that too often devotional material fails to engage the mind in addition to the heart. Touching stories replace the very source of lasting encouragement and strength we need each day-the truth of the Word of God. But this is never true of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones's writing.

Reviews - What do customers think about Walking with God Day by Day: 365 Daily Devotional Selections?
excerpts from sermons Feb 13, 2008
This book has excerpts from the published sermons of Rev. Lloyd-jones. Each month the excerpts are from a different book. Back in 1970 Eerdmans had a daily devotional book using excerpts from his topical books. I much prefer this out of print book to this one.
One shortcoming of this book is that by having 30 or so excerpts from the same book causes some of them to be of lower usefulness than if there were 365 excerpts from 12 books.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones -- one of the best Christian authors I have been blessed to discover Jun 11, 2007
David Martyn Lloyd-Jones wrote many books--all of them great. His 365 Daily Devotional Selections is a gift I gave to myself and will recommend to other people who might have an interest.
His other astounding book "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" is a goldmine of spiritual wisdom. This publication has been a blessing to me years back when I came across it and I hope to promote Lloyd-Jones' name and recommend all of his books to as many people as I can.
Perfect for day-to-day reading Jun 21, 2006
Too many devotionals fall short when it comes to conviction and rebuke. Lloyd Jones doesn't pull any punches. Each day he challenges you to think differently and pushes you further up the hill of Christianity. It is strange saying D. Martyn Lloyd Jones is my favorite author since he didn't actually write any of these books. However, the fact that all his books come from his sermons or lectures show that his insight and wisdom are as timeless as C.S. Lewis or Jonathan Edwards. If you are looking for a daily devotional book that gives more than fluffy words of comfort then look no further. This is the book for you!
Wonderful, Deep Devotional Material in a Readable Format Jan 13, 2004
Finding helps for our devotional time can be a challenge. Often, many of them merely offer a "Daily Crumb" rather then a satisfying meal of Scripture. This new collection of the late Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones writings, arranged into 365 daily readings, seeks to offer devotional material that engages the mind in addition to the heart. One feature I especially like in their arrangement is that each month has a theme, such as "New Life in the Spirit" (January) or "Knowing and Serving God" (August). I have enjoyed the continuity and thematic thinking that this enables the reader to do. One other feature that I enjoy is that each excerpt lists the book and page numbers from which it was taken, something that many collections like this fail to do. This enables a person who is interested in reading more on a given topic, to know where to find it!
All in all, editor Robert Backhouse has provided a great service in compiling these many words of wisdom, challenge, and devotion from Lloyd-Jones into a useful resource for believers today. Try it and see how it can help you 'glorify God and enjoy Him forever'.
