TimIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Devotions from the MountainsJanuary 24, 2018TimIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Here is a very pretty devotional. By that I mean, the photographs found throughout the book are simply wonderful. Each picture is of mountain scenery, and each is testament to the glorious nature of God's creation. Each photo is printed in full-color. Some of the photos are single page, some are facing pages making a panoramic scene.
Beyond the beauty of the physical nature in the book, there are, as the title would suggest, devotions which are based on the author being inspired by the mountains. Each devotional consists of a verse, a thought, and a prayer.
Much of the devotional thought is practical insight, not preachy in trying to form the Scripture into something it is not. It is as if the author has read the Scripture and then observed something in the mountains which is linked to the Scripture. The observations are shared in this book. The difference may seem subtle, but for me it is significant. I don't mind reading someone else's insights and observations, but I dislike when an author proof-texts the Scripture to prove their point.
To this end, I like the way this book is written, illustrated, and presented. This would make a nice gift book, or a wonderful devotional for anyone who loves the outdoors. A ribbon marker is included which even helps in keeping up with which devotion to which the reader would like to return.
I received a copy of this book for free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for a review. The review was not required to be positive, and the thoughts expressed are my own.

By Lisa Ham
Do you love the mountains, then this devotional is for you? Each devotion consists of a scripture verse to start, then adds a short reading, with a beautiful photo of mountain scenery and a prayer at the end. There are a set of five reading to a section, then a full two-page photo of the mountains that is beautiful and awe inspiring. You can start your reading anytime because there are no days or dates on the devotions, so you may use them however you wish. The subjects are different each reading and will give you inspiration for the day. Use each days devotion to get that feeling of heaven on earth that you get when you visit the mountains. Through the photos you can enjoy Gods creations and with the scripture verse combined with the reading and prayer to help you have inter peace so you can tackle the day ahead and know that God is with you. A very enjoyable book and would make a great gift for hikers and for anyone who enjoys the out of doors or needs a pick me up.
