Great Devotional! Mar 27, 2007
After years of many different styles of devotional, this is by far the best kept secret in devotionals. The emphasis is on helping the reader understand the Bible story as a whole. Most stories have one page of scripture followed by an analogy that allows you to think the story through in the world we live in today. The next section is thoughts to ponder. Great way to have a conversation if more than one person is doing the devotion at the same time. To add even more beauty to the book, each story ends with a prayer specific to the reading or analogy. My husband and I do one devotional each evening. We both agree that this is one of the best devotionals on the market. It is especially great for those that are searching to truly learn more of God's Word along with their daily devotional time. We plan to give them as gifts in the future.
Best devotional I've found Jan 25, 2007
I just bought this devotional for my whole family (6 copies for Christmas).
The reason why I have enjoyed this devotional so much is because it actually has the Bible as it's main section. Many devotionals use one or two verses and then come up with their own thoughts/interpretations/beliefs. This devotional is probably 55%-60% straight Bible and then Phillip Patterson adds some solid food for thought. My one worry was that it would just have the stories and would miss out on the theology found in the prophets, and letters of Paul. But so far (note I'm only on day 22 so far) he has quoted probably 40 or so passages that connect with the story we read.
The one note I would say is he's goes right through the Bible. So many of the stories fall in Genesis and Exodus. Although Patterson does give insight to many different parts of the Bible during these sections, you may choose to jump around and do some of the 150 New Testament stories to shake it up. Either way, I fully recommend.
May God bless you as you read and learn more and more about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
