Jesus Always is the new Jesus Calling. I have used Jesus Calling at every age level (since it is also in many children's versions). I am now using Jesus Always in the same way. I love how Sarah Young's devotions, (inspired by what God was teaching and revealing to her), is written as if Jesus were speaking to each of us (rather than speaking about Jesus). Each devotion in Jesus Always is also Biblically-based. I usually start out by reading the Bible verses for that day FIRST and asking, "What does that verse say about God." and "What does that verse say about man (me or you?") Then after some reflection or a brief discussion (if using in a group), will then read the devotion. Have used this format with young children, teens and adults. Jesus Always is as rich as Jesus Calling. I am now hoping for the children's versions of Jesus Always to be published soon.
This is the best devotional book I have ever used---and in my opinion, the best even of Sarah Young's books. The thoughts are taken directly from Scripture and the Scripture references are listed on each page.
A very dear friend gave me a copy of this book and I immediately fell in love with it. I love the concept of Jesus speaking directly. I have subsequently ordered a copy to give to my sister next month for her birthday. This is the first of Sarah's books that I have read, but it will not be the last. It speaks to my heart.
