Let me begin by saying that I am a reasonable and reasoning person, who is open minded enough to change my views when necessary. However, I must say that there are an increasing number of so-called Christian books out today that have little or no Biblical substance, and some, like this one, that has the appearance of being Biblical. Let me explain. This book claims to be the personal revelation, by God, to the author. It is transcribed automatically, from God by revelation, to the author, then printed for all the world to share. There are two problems with this. First, the Bible warns in Revelation that no one should add to the Book He has revealed to us. Second, it is given to the author through automatic writing, which is an occult phenomenon. I realize that the book is very popular, but please exercise restraint when stocking the library of your mind. Just because something is popular does not make it correct.
This is a wonderful gift or for yourself. Beautiful daily devotions from Jesus! It is a nice compact size. It shows the scripture address that relates to the devotion, where the larger edition also has the whole scripture written out along with the address.
Jesus Calling, Women's Edition, is just perfect! It hits me between the eyes every morning! What a great way to start the day being reminded to trust the Lord and rest in Him no matter what!

This really fills my need for a devotional each morning. I enjoy trying different things each year, and this is truly a blessing for me this year! I definitely recommend it. I read the devotional, then follow up by reading the scripture for the day, then journal a sentence or two. It's been a great experience so far!
