tickmenotKansas CityGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5How Do You Say Relax?October 19, 2016tickmenotKansas CityGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Although this amazing book is considered a devotional, it is so much more. It is heavy, both literally and figuratively, because there is a lot packed into its pages. The beautiful padded cover has strong pages made of premium paper that are easy to turn, the entire book is very well made. There are sixty-six topics that range from Mary being told by the Angel Gabriel that she would give birth to the Savior, to the subjects of forgiveness, guilt and Jesus' Ascension.
Each chapter contains three areas. The first section has the scripture that will be studied. It is followed by the meditation section which discusses the Bible passage in an interesting, and easy to read way. The final section is a prayer that applies the scripture and discussion to the reader in today's world.
All of the chapters makes good points about the chosen scripture, and is done in a way that will capture your attention. Many of the points made about familiar incidents in the Bible were ones I had never considered before. That made this book very interesting for me, and I think anyone reading it would have the same experience.
Each topic will make you think, and the words will give you peace. Because this is such a pretty book to look at, with such insight between its pages, it would make a lovely gift. I highly recommend this five-plus star book to anyone wanting a closer look at the Bible, or to get new insights into the heart of God. You will be blessed by it.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Fictional embellishments to gospel stories includedOctober 7, 2016bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2This book is a reissue of the devotional originally published in 1998. Gire looks at 66 moments in the earthly life of Christ. The Scripture is given and then his comments are added. Each reaching ends with a prayer. Gire desires that readers see the beauty of Christ and fall in love with Him all over again.
Gire sometimes adds historical information in his meditation and at other times cultural details. Sometimes he seems to merely retell the Scripture story with an additional emotional perspective. The devotionals vary in length, some as long as ten pages while others are as short as five pages.
I must add a word of caution to potential readers of this book. Gire sometimes uses his imagination and adds fictional emotions or details to an event that are not given in the Scripture. An example is his meditation on Jesus' temptation in the desert. Gire writes of Jesus, He remembers the smoke from the altar, wisping toward heaven like a prayer. Jesus settles in a shallow cave scalloped out of the hillside. His angular features look as if they have been chiseled from a slab of rock. (63-65) It makes for a captivating devotional but it is fiction and that disturbs me. Readers should be aware that Gire sometimes adds to the Scripture scenes fictional details that are not part of the original event as recorded.
That being said, there are some good lessons in the meditations Gire provides. One example is the lesson from the genealogy of Christ. That God's purposes are not thwarted by our humanity, however weak and wayward it may be. (17)
The strength of this book is the prayers at the end of each reading. They are great for applying the truth of the scene from Jesus' life. Gire has written them to help readers discern what the Spirit might be saying to them. He hopes they are a stepping off point for further heartfelt prayers to God.
This book might be a good choice for a two month study on the life of Christ. Readers must be aware that Gire has added fictional embellishments to the Scripture stories, something that I do not like.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an honest and independent review.
ciciAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Moments with JesusOctober 5, 2016ciciAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0With tons of information about Him I would have thought can there be another book about Him and still be inspiring. Yes! I was grabbed from the first moment to the last with the latest book Moments with the Savior by Ken Gire. It is exactly as the title states, moments with Jesus, and you will devour them as quickly and lovingly as I did. I may have reread the book already and it still is as powerful the second like the first. I could not put this book down because not only do we get to learn more about Jesus but Gire gives wonderful scriptures and prayers with each moment. As a scripture devotee those came as pure delight and treasures to enjoy when ever I need inspiration. I received a copy for this review from book look bloggers and all opinions are my own.
Mark5 Stars Out Of 5great devotional!October 2, 2016MarkQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is not a 365-day devotional, but one that covers around two months. If I counted correctly, there are 66 devotionals in the book. It is a 446 page book, so these are not short devotionals. Most of them go 6-8 pages.
The devotional is completely centered around Jesus' ministry here on earth that is found in the Gospels. They each start out with Scripture, followed by the actual devotional part - the meditation, and ending with a prayer.
To me, this seems like a daunting task to write so many devotionals all focusing on moments in Jesus' life, but the author does it well. These aren't light and fluffy devotionals, but have depth to them and are not something you can read over fast, but instead it takes some time to read these. They are very well done, interesting, and well thought out and researched. I have read the Gospels and different portions countless times in my life, but Gire brought out some new thoughts that helped me see things in a different light.
The only downside I can see in this book, is the length of the devotions. I don't always have time in the morning to read much, and these are much longer than the typical 365 day devotionals I read.... but that is a small downside. It just proves my point that there is so much more in these devotionals since they are longer.
The book is an attractive hardcover book that would not only make a great devotional for the buyer, but it would also make a great gift.
This book was given to me in exchange for my honest review.

Moments with the Savior is a devotional which explores every moment of Jesus. It takes the reader on a journey from the birth of Jesus, His childhood, and throughout His ministry. Each devotion starts out with a scripture verse directly linked to Jesus. Directly following each scripture verse is a point of meditation as Moments with the Savior intricately explores that time and what was happening as well as conversations that could have taken place and emotions that could have been possible. Meditation allows the mind to place the reader in that specific time and moment. Following the meditation is a prayer starter; not a completed prayer, but an open-ended prayer which gives the inspiration to continue on in a conversation with the Lord.
I Love the way in which Moments with the Savior is written. It has given me a new perspective on Jesus and what is talked about Him in Gods Word. It has given me a deeper understanding concerning Jesus and our purpose here on earth. I highly recommend Moments with the Savior!
