Kara5 Stars Out Of 5June 22, 2010KaraDon't let this book's compact size and fairly short length fool you. This little book is packed with biblically sound, Christ-centered truth. Ms. Brownback doesn't shy away from theological discussions in favor of lighter fare and rather shallow Scripture application, as some women's devotionals seem to be prone to do.Coming in at just over 100 pages, Joy: A Godly Woman's Adornment contains an intro and 41 devotions, all focused, as you've probably guessed from the title, on biblical joy. Each devotion begins with a Scripture passage followed by a short (about two page) meditation on the passage. Not surprisingly, the book of Philippians and the Psalms figure prominently, although there are selections from multiple Old and New Testament books.During my busy days, it's difficult to find time to do more than read in bits and pieces a few minutes at a time. My household is just too busy for in depth reading on a regular basis through the day. I save those books for early in the morning, late at night, or when I know I'll have longer than 5 or 10 minutes to devote to them. Otherwise I find myself constantly having to backtrack a few pages to pick up the train of thought where I left off. So, I really appreciate the short length of these devotions. I'm able to read one in just a few minutes, and then chew on it and talk to God about it as I go about my daily tasks. The compact size makes the book easy to toss in my purse or bag and take along. I found the book to be convenient and easy to use, without sacrificing depth. The devotions were gospel-saturated and refreshing. I look forward to reading the other titles in the series (Trust, Contentment, and Purity).(Crossway graciously provided a review copy of this title to me in exchange for an honest review.
