This is absolutely the best devotional I have ever owned! This devotional presents as a one-on-one bible study with God. This devotional has helped me connect to God more deeply through His Word. I HIGHLY recommend it!
Wonderfully different approach to daily Bible reading. This devotional uses the classical method of lectio divina (I didn't know what that was until I got the book.) and would be great devotionals for any age.
I only just started digging into this, so my five-star rating may be a little premature... but so far I love it. I've been frustrated lately with the abundance of devotionals out there that make little reference to the actual Bible. I was really looking for something that would deepen my understanding and help me meditate on God's Word, and not just provide anecdotes from the author's life... this is it! A short passage (maybe 5-20 verses) is included right in the devotional, with recommended readings for those wanting even more time in the Word. Then there's the chance to "think", "pray", and "live" the passage.
I have bought several devotionals in my time but this lives up to its title - 'an uncommon devotional'. I already owned a copy of The Message Bible so I was very interested in buying this. I've used it a few times and, with the help of the Spirit, the Word has came alive!! I'm 24 and have a young family so this was perfect for me to get into the Word a different way. I enjoy many different Bible study methods and this devotional helps me discover the Word of God in a fresh new way!! A must buy for anyone, especially teens, who want to get into the powerful and life changing Word of God!!
