MikeAlexandria, INAge: 45-54Gender: Male4 Stars Out Of 5Short DevotionalMarch 1, 2017MikeAlexandria, INAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4In his short book, The 100 Most Encouraging Bible Verses, Troy Schmidt has written a book which is designed to give the readers a shot of hope and encouragement along their journey.
The book contains as the title states, 100 verses, which according to Schmidt are the most encouraging passages in the Bible. Each verse is listed at the top of the page and a one page short devotion follows after that.
The book works as a quick devotional or when you need a dose or extra dose of encouragement, it's a quick and easy read.
Schmidt uses a variety of translations, which I found a bit unsettling, since I like to stick with one version, however, that does not take away from the theme or message of the devotional.
It's always interesting to read someone else's top 100 encouraging verses, because there are always verses which are left out which I thought should be included. Overall, this is an easy to read and quick read devotional. It seems patterned to be somewhat similar to the Our Daily Bread devotional.
In the end, this is a good book to read on those rainy days.
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
daleenc4 Stars Out Of 5100 Verses of God's EncouragementDecember 22, 2016daleencQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3Normally, I dont do the non-fiction thats offered via the blogging programs. Yet I made an exception for Troy Schmidts The 100 Most Encouraging Verses of the Bible was an exception. Im glad I made that exception too.
It was a great book to read through. If you glance through my copy, youll see sentences that I highlighted, little thoughts that Troy Schmidt brought up that I never thought of before or just a phrase that I need to remember throughout my daily life.
Numbers 11:23 Once His arms are there, they wont let go.
Isnt that just an incredible thought?
The format of the book was great. The first thing you saw was the verse; then his thoughts laid out like a short two minutes devotional. While I dont like the idea of five-minute devotionals, I think this would be a great addition to a longer devotional or a small group lesson or something.
One thing I think would make this book better is if he would have added the references to other verses pertaining to the same things. That would make it a much more indepth study. Like with the 1st verse, he talks about Gods promises. Okay, so at the end of that little devotional, add verses about Gods promises or the verses where we can find Gods promises.
Other than that, however, it was an excellent little book. I would definitely recommend it.

DanniAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Good DevotionalDecember 13, 2016DanniAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4100 Most Encouraging Verses of the Bible is a fun little devotional type book. Because honestly who doesn't need encouragement now and then?
These verses are presented in order in which they are found in the Bible and for some reason I really liked that. There were a lot of verses in there that you would expect:
But even with those familiar verses I really liked the explanations. For example with the Proverbs verse the entire devotion part was focused on one word....Trust. What it means to trust. I never really thought of the verse that way before.
I think this is a really good devotional for anyone who does need encouragement. I think this is just a good devotional in general.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest opinion.
Frosty5 Stars Out Of 5Great little bookDecember 7, 2016FrostyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love this little book. Each day features a Bible verse and a brief devotion that can be read in minutes. I've found it as a great way to begin the day on a positive note. The verses Troy Schmidt chose are uplifting. And he keeps the devotion simple. The book is done in chronological order according to the books of the Bible. I recommend The 100 Most Encouraging Books of the Bible to anyone who seeks uplifting support from God each day. I received this book for free from Bethany House.
