Prayer Guide Nov 3, 2007
This is a wonderful book for Deacons, Elders or anyone that seeks to be a better christian and serves the Lord in any capacity.
Essential for a fulfilling life! May 14, 2007
This is a wonderful daily devotional. It gives you prayers, inspirational stories, a psalm, and scripture. What more could you ask when seeking an intimate relationship with God, this book provides optimal guidance in this search.
Keeping in Step Jan 11, 2007
Keeping in step with their previous books, Shawchuck & Job provide an effective booklet for personal worship/reflection/devotion. A reformatting now places Sunday reading list at the beginning of the weekly readings making for simpler understanding for how to proceed through the week. I recommend this book for all those who wish to seek God, seriously, consistently, and daily.
Simply love it! Mar 22, 2006
This has quickly become a part of my daily devotional reading. The format allows for it to be used as a mini-worship service. To date, however, I have primarily used it for suggested scripture readings and the wonderful readings from various sources accompanying each weeks program.
I like the pattern of multiple, brief readings versus a single long offering.
