I enjoy reading Our Daily Bread. I felt I wanted or actually needed something more and mentioned this to my wife. She said immediately went to the internet for sports' devotionals and bought Tony Dungy's book for me at Christmas. It was one of the best presents she ever gave me. The book is outstanding! I still read ODB and will always start my day with it. Adding this new read every morning is enjoyable and energizing. I heard Coach Dungy was a Christian after the Colts won the Super Bowl. I grew to respect him and took a personal interest in his life. He reminds me a lot of Tom Landry of the Cowboys who I followed and respected greatly as I was growing up. I may even have my wife read it as she loves her devotionals, and it is so very inspirational. Also she may get a better perspective - and gain more knowledge - about the world of sports from a different angle!
Tony Dungy is excellent in this devotional. Very much enjoy each discussion, really gets real and totally brings God's word to today! Would definitely recommend this book for anyone. I just ordered a book for my 19 yr old son.
This was a great daily devotional book. My husband loved it, having admired Tony's career. It's dated and each day is started with a key topic word like "Influence", or " Faith", "Family", then an opening for the topic- just a couple words, then a Bible verse, and then Tony's encouraging text, usually a few paragraphs. It ends with an "Uncommon Key" which is basically a final thought about the day's topic.
This is the perfect book for the guys in your life. Especially football lovers of course. Men like to be challenged, and this book is certainly a challenge for men to rise up with integrity and
"Dare to Be Uncommon Every Day" on every page.
Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge is a devotional written on the rotating themes of core, family, friends, potential, mission, influence, and faith. Since the devotions stand alone, the book can be started at any time of the year without confusion. Each devotion has a scripture and a way to apply or act on the information and a challenge to "do more for God's Kingdom."
I found the devotions powerful and I enjoyed the format. The book begins with information about how to use the book. I particularly appreciated the final paragraph that encourages the reader to keep on going and not try to catch up after missing a day, but to "spend time with God today." I believe that this will make a great addition to a year, culminating in a stronger Christian life and relationship with God.
