    Voices of the Faithful is a collection of inspiring devotions from missionaries across the globe. These dedicated servants of God—many serving in remote areas or countries openly hostile to the gospel—share bits and pieces of their lives and how God has worked through their ministry. Each devotion is rounded off with a relevant Scripture and a prayer to help us commune with God regarding the message in the devotion.

    More than one brought tears to my eyes as I read about healings, protection, comfort, pain, miracles, and the changed lives of people around the world as they were touched by God. We are all witnesses for God, no matter where we are, and each of the monthly topics—from God's Character and Word to Witnessing and Persecution to Spiritual Warfare and Compassion—carries lessons that speak to our hearts.

    They couldn't have picked anyone better to introduce each month's devotions than Beth Moore. Her thoughts prepare the readers for each topic with the particular, heart-felt way she speaks to people's hearts and points us to God's goodness.

    I can't recommend this devotional book highly enough. Its inspiring stories will touch you, encourage you, and motivate you throughout the year_and perhaps change your life forever.

    This is an easy to read devotional.

    This is a devotional book for every day of the year. Each day starts with a Bible verse and then goes on to tell an inspiring story from Christians around the world.It ends with a short prayer that points to a need from that part of the world.

    I found the stories included down to earth and easy to read. So often our problems seem too hard to bear, yet reading of the struggles of these brave people who are committed to serving God, puts life into perspective. I like to end my day by reading one just before turning out the lights. The verses and stories turn your mind toward God and His involvement with people. I highly recommend "Voices of the Faithful" with the introduction by Beth Moore.

    This would also make a nice gift.

    Just wanted you to know that this book, reviewed here at "Book Sneeze" readings was graciously donated by Booksneeze for the purpose of giving you great previews and reviews!

    This devotional, complied by Beth Moore, is comprised of 366 true-life stories from missionaries serving around the world. Moore concludes that its purpose is as a call to missions, whether to go or send or cover in prayer. It is obvious her hope is that the stories will inspire folk to see outside themselves and get a sense of the church as a global body of Christ, resulting in the inspiration of the reader to find his/her own mission in that.

    Each day, the reader is presented with a scripture verse, a short account from a missionary, and a simple prayer. The book is divided up by date, with each month following a common theme such as God's Character, Prayer, God's Grace, Contentment, Spiritual Warfare, and Compassion. Each month has a forward by Moore discussing these themes.

    I really enjoyed this book. Some accounts are the wild and shocking bits people seem to always expect from missionaries, while others are quieter, simpler tales. Yet all are pointing to God as the one who is and who does, which is the point afterall. I appreciate how these accounts show the humanity behind both the missionaries and those whom they serve. Moore talks in her initial introduction to the book how these people are like everyone else, and this comes through strongly in many of these stories. With the people sharing their struggles so honestly, it tears down the myth that one must be perfect in faith before serving as each story shows how it is God's hand at work. I also appreciate that there is such variety with the stories, intuitively showing that God is neither dependent upon, nor limited by location and circumstance. The short prayers at the end, while at times seek God's help for personal growth regarding the corresponding insight, are moreso prayers extending outward for the work that God is doing in the world.

    My only complaint about this book would be that I wish each section were a bit longer. Each day's reading is a quick easy read. While this could be convenient for some, I find myself wanting to linger a bit longer.

    I would highly recommend this book for anyone who wants a supplement to their regular Bible reading. As it is a compilation of others' stories, it should not be mistaken to be similar to Moore's Bible Study series or her other books. People who are looking for something specifically focusing and expounding on inward personal growth, may be initially disappointed. There is a strong element of this in the book, especially with the monthly motifs, however, the responsibility of drawing these conclusions is left to the reader. I think this is because these stories are meant to inspire the reader, by establishing truths about the nature of God and the possibilities that come with a willing heart, which in turn encourages on to ask God for the next step.

    Voices of the Faithful is a daily devotional unlike any I have seen. With a forward and book introductions written by Beth Moore, this devotional centers around daily readings written by hundreds of missionaries from around the world. Each offers a glimpse into the life of these workers of God and unique insight into a world few ever experience. I love particularly love the parts of this devotional written by Beth Moore. I agree with what she says in the intro about it being hard sometimes to grasp that there are real live people out there devoting their lives day in and day out to spreading God's Word in the most remote of places. Missions work is something that can easily feel far removed from one's everyday life. I liked that these devotions showed that missionaries are just people like everyone else, and it made it easier to connect with and relate to them. Some of the stories were more engaging than others, but overall I think this is a unique and uplifting daily devotional. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Loved the monthly, only liked the daily.

    Voices of the Faithful is a 365 day devotional book with different subject topics each month such as God's word, prayer, compassion & witnessing. Each month has a separate topic, and Beth provides an AMAZING intro to each month. However, the single page daily devotionals are stories from missionaries around the world.

    This was the first book I had read from Beth Moore, and I wasn't sure it would live up to all the hoopla I have heard_ both good & bad. Voices of the Faithful proved to be both good & bad - The inspiration I received from each of the monthly intros from Beth Moore made the book worthy of a 5 star review. Unfortunately I can't say I loved the daily devotions. As the daily devotions are from missionaries in different locations around the world, I had a hard time putting myself in their shoes. I would prefer to have read more "real life" stories that I could better apply to my everyday life. I would recommend this book, however I'd make sure the reader knew the daily devotions are from missionaries and not Beth. I will definitely be looking into some of Beth Moore's other books.

    NOTICE: I received this book free from the publisher through the a book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own
