Now Hillman has written his second book of devotions.

Os Hillman's second collection of devotions, TGIF: Today God Is First, is targeted at people in the workforce. It contains 365 one-page devotions, each dated for a specific day of the year. They are biblically accurate when they talk about scriptural matters, but the book seems to fall short on some levels.

I like a devotional to link biblical concepts with current world concerns, so when I found that each entry featured a Bible quote followed by a short exposition on the passage, I was disappointed. To me, it was more of a Bible study than a devotional, featuring a variety of themes and passages that seemed disjointed.

I felt this book would have been better with organized sections related to the workforce, such as "Quality Service," "God Honoring Goals," "Being a Testimony at Work," and "Leading by Christian Example." Or perhaps some references to up-to-date stories to show how the Bible is still applicable in today's workplace.

If you are expecting a clever turn of phrase, a vibrant epiphany, or an insightful illustration you can take to work to share with a colleague, you won't find it here. Instead, you'll find some poignant, gracious, accurate explanations of various passages in the Bible. That's not a bad way to start one's day. -- Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
