GHott5 Stars Out Of 5Great to keep or share!October 5, 2018GHottQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I immediately loved the look and feel of the book. It's eye-catching yet has a peaceful quality. It's well bound on beautiful paper with reminders and passages that speak to your heart, even if they're printed a bit small . :)
Every evening I spent time in this dear book, and created images for each of the promises it shared that will grace the background of my PC & keep me focused on HIM as I work. The mix of promises and application is a wonderful daily exercise that I'll be thrilled to read again and again.
I loved reading Praying the Promises: Anchor Your Life to Unshakable Hope and can't wait to share it with others!
Mark5 Stars Out Of 5well written...would make a great 30-day devotionalOctober 2, 2018MarkQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The cover of this book caught my eye. I like lighthouses, and I also like Max Lucado's writing. I figured it had to be good.
This is not a Bible promise book full of promises from the Bible, though there are a lot of those in the book. It is more like a devotional. There are 30 chapters. Each one starts with a page that has the title of the chapter, followed by a promise from the Bible. The second page has the Unshakable Hope section, which is thoughts on promises in the Bible. The third page has a few promises, followed by a page with a prayer about promises. The chapter ends with the "I am" section, which is a statement of what we are as Christians.
Throughout the book are pages with lighthouses and anchors in the background, making a very attractive book with its reds and whites.
Lucado and his daughter did a great job on the book. The promises they picked out are varied and relative to today. The Unshakable Hope sections are very well written, interesting, and helpful. The prayers are a very neat way of praying the promises, something most of us probably don't do enough of....if at all. And the reminders of what we are in Christ are very encouraging.
This book could be read several chapters at once, but I would recommend going through it a chapter a day, and using it as a 30 day devotional.
