Publisher's Description

Devotionals are designed to bring the reader into a more intimate relationship with God. Dianne Neal Matthews knows no better way for believers to know God more intimately than to immerse themselves in his Word. To that end, her new daily devotional combines fascinating historical background information about the Bible with practical application that readers can implement in their lives each day. She guides readers on a journey through the Bible from beginning to end, highlighting major events, characters, and stories, as well as difficult issues and topics (such as the concept of theophany, God's instructions to the Israelites to show no mercy as they entered the Promised Land, and what seems at first glance to be discrepancies between the Gospels).

Readers new to Bible study or those who long to learn more will appreciate the background information Matthews provides, as well as the way she shows how the Scriptures fit together to form a cohesive work. This is the perfect devotional for anyone who desires to go deeper into the Scriptures as they deepen their relationship with God.

    I started this devotion on January 1, 2013 and finished it this morning December 31, 2013. What a journey it has been. I loved this devotional book and I loved how the author was spot on with God's word. It has been a joy to walk through each day of this book. I highly recommend anyone looking for a new devotional book to pick up this one and start your own journey.

    Biblical study is a lifelong apprenticeship for the dedicated Christian. Although no book can replace studying the Bible itself, Designed for Devotion: A 365-Day Journey from Genesis to Revelation offers a companion-of-sorts to the reader who desires to increase his or her knowledge of the Bible and dedication to God. In Designed for Devotion, Bible teacher Dianne Neal Matthews comprehensively explains the main stories, people and teachings of the Bible. Additionally, she provides relevant historical background, Old and New Testament Scripture correlations and practical applications for the reader to implement.

    I used Designed for Devotion: A 365-Day Journey from Genesis to Revelation by Dianne Neal Matthews as a supplement to my regular Bible reading. I think new believers will find the book especially helpful as it hits all the major Biblical events, people and lessons. I liked that Bible references were given along with each devotion. There were a few stories that I was not familiar with and it was good to be able to go to the Scripture and see exactly what it said. Believers with more knowledge of the Bible can also benefit from reading Designed for Devotion. Like most devotional books, to receive the greatest benefit and impact, the lessons must be read slowly and seriously. Each entry is less than a page long, so there were times it was almost too easy to breeze though. However, serious, thoughtful reflection on these lessons and the corresponding Scriptures will certainly lead any believer to new discoveries and lessons.

    Dianne's book is a daily devotional that starts on January 1st with an overview of the Bible and then on January 2nd, it focuses on Genesis. For the rest of the year, it moves through the Bible with pithy commentary and practical ideas. It will augment perfectly your reading of Scripture, whether or not you are reading through the whole Bible in a year or not.

    I really appreciate Dianne's goal in drawing her reader into a more intimate relationship with God. I think this book will be especially powerful as a gift for any new Christian whom you want to entice an interest in regular Bible reading and good, solid Bible knowledge. Dianne gives a thorough summary of each passage of Scripture, along with a related Bible verse, and important, interesting historical background. There's also thought-provoking personal application.

    But you'll appreciate it also, whether you use it as a companion to your daily Bible reading or just to pick it up and turn to any day's devotional. You'll find tantalizing insights that will make you spiritually hungry and thirsty to read the passage again and see God's work.

    Baker Books sent me a copy to give away and to write a review, but I can write any opinions I desire. (I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.")

    This devotional has meat to it and instead of just reading it and walking away, it gives you something to meditate on all day.

    I will be using this devotional for the next couple years!

    Designed for Devotion, Dianne Neal Matthews

    I loved this book. This is a not only wonderful devotional but a great addition to a Bible study. Dianne Neal Matthews takes us on a journey from Genesis to Revelations. She shows a little history of the scripture. The best part is the way we are showed ways to apply it to your life. It helps to bring you to a place of greater understanding. If you are searching for a closer walk with the Lord this is a great tool.
