Frances5 Stars Out Of 5Jesus CallingMarch 6, 2019FrancesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Daily Devotional. While visiting a friend she showed me her "Jesus Calling" book. A week later I purchased one. Since then I have given away 4 copies. I think this devotional was written just for me, some mornings the whole page is so personal, some times it is a paragraph that touches me. On occasion just a line is so real to me. Never have I gone away without being uplifted. This book is convicting as well as encouraging. Every devotional is backed up with scripture references. Each days reading is a page, sometimes a page full, sometimes a half page. I like the larger print of this copy of "Jesus Calling" book. It has helped me draw closer to the Lord in my daily walk.
TimIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Jesus Calling FloralFebruary 25, 2019TimIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Over the past few years this devotional has been released in a variety of bindings and formats. It has also elicited both praise and criticism. The praise for it's insight, the criticism because the author includes her thoughts of how God would speaks. The criticism seems to be that people feel she is putting words into God's mouth. Personally, I don't buy into the criticism. This is a devotional, which is meant to cause the reader to reflect upon God's word, not replace it. All she has done is write in a fashion that a quote from Scripture fits contextually into the thoughts Young is trying to use for inspiration and drawing the reader into a deeper awe of God's goodness and mercy. The quote is italicized in this version, as it is in other versions.
There is little here which separates this version from other versions. If you have read/own other versions, there is probably not a huge rush to purchase this one. It is beautiful in its layout, and there are some additional verses included on some of the devotions, but not anything which changes the focus of previous editions, simply a supplement to earlier printings.
All in all, if you are looking for a beautiful edition for yourself or a gift, this is a great option. If you have a previous edition, this would be a different look more than anything else. Personally, as a male, I would prefer the imitation leather bindings or hardback, but that is strictly personal opinion. If you have someone who loves flowers, male or female, this might be just what you are looking for.
I received a copy of this from BookLook Bloggers for free, in exchange for an honest review. The review did not have to be positive, and the thoughts expressed herein are my own.
Norma5 Stars Out Of 5I Love this DevotionalFebruary 25, 2019NormaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Many years ago my mentor gave me a copy of this devotional. Actually she gave me a copy of another one of Sarah Youngs devotionals, keeping this one for herself, and after a year we traded copies. A few years ago she passed away. December 22, 2018 I had a house fire and lost most of my belongings. This alone is devastating, but the loss of this devotional which means so much to me and has been such a constant companion was very difficult. I am grateful to be able to replace it. Not only would I recommend it but over the years have bought copies for my close friends.
