All to Jesus: A Year of Devotions
I have never been disappointed in books by Robert J. Morgan.

All To Jesus
One of the trends today is to pick one word and focus on it for the entire year. That is somewhat of the premise of this devotional. In the introduction Mr. Morgan tells us how reading 1 Peter 5:7 began his journey of studying the word all, in all of the scriptures. I know that most skip over introductions but in this case donÃ¢ÂÂt, you will be doubly blessed by what he has to say.
The format is simple. Each day is numbered so you can literally start at any point in the year, be it January 1st or July 27th. There is a suggested scripture passage and then a highlighted verse that contains the word all. Following that there is a devotional that pertains to the subject of the highlighted verse.
Mr. Morgan has a very conversational style of writing that I think most will find enjoyable. It would make a nice reading companion at the beginning of your day or right before you lay your head down. I for one enjoy carrying a small Bible and devotional book in my car with me. Like most wives and mothers there are times that I get stranded waiting for a family member. This book was wonderful to read and ponder during those moments.

A great devotional
All to Jesus is a wonderful devotional that will truly bless anyone who chooses to walk with the Lord through its pages. Each day includes a short Bible reading, with a special verse highlighted from the passage, and it is accompanied by a quick story or illustration or thought on life. I find that the daily devotion is just perfect to get me thinking about a truth from God's word, a truth that can carry me through my day. The devotions are interesting and well-written, and contain a lot of wisdom. Often I hear people complain that it's just too difficult to find time to spend in God's word or time to spend in a devotional. All to Jesus provides an answer to just such thinking, as it will taking maybe a minute or two to read the day's offering. After spending the day thinking about you red, you just may find yourself opening God's word for more!
This devotional would make a wonderful gift for a loved one this Christmas, or perhaps you may just want to pick it up for yourself. I give it a solid recommendation and a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.

A beginning point for Bible study
This daily devotional touches on a small part of ALL God is. Scripture passages plus clear and concise examples whet the appetite, and prompt you to dig a little deeper into His Word to get to know Him better. The downside for me is that it doesn't stick to just one translation, or even two. The author uses lots of different ones and I think for some that may be confusing.
An added bonus included is the music download available from Lifeway Worship; 42 songs and hymns including traditional Christmas and Easter hymns, and patriotic songs. The melodies are synthesized (or at least it sounds that way to me) but I love that the singing is just plain old "normal". Nothing weird or fancy. Reminds me of singing in church long ago.
I received this devotional from B & B Media Group in exchange for my honest opinion of the book. No other compensation has been received.
