I had quite a few books started when I added this one to the mix. I looked forward to reading a short devotion every day. Some days I read more than one! The devotions were not that long, they were a perfect length and easy to keep up with. I enjoyed how each one ended with a little prayer as well. I enjoyed reading through this and plan on starting over again.
PennyMindingMomAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A great daily devotional.February 14, 2017PennyMindingMomAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4One of my fondest memories about my Grandmother is one of her sitting in her rocking chair in the kitchen and writing in her diary. Everyday without fail she would write about what she did, the weather and any special event. While she was alive she would allow us to read it, but after her passing reading it revives that special connection we always had. A Spectacle of Glory is a bit like reading my Grandmothers diary, creating a special connection with the author.
A Spectacle of Glory: Gods Light Shining Through Me Every Day by Joni Eareckson Tada is a daily devotional that will help you glorify God every day. Jonis life hasnt been easy, living 50 years as a quadriplegic, and dealing with chronic pain, Joni has learned the importance of glorifying God through the good times and the bad. This devotional will help you discover Gods love and greatness in your life and how to showcase His glory to everyone around out.
A Spectacle of Glory: Gods Light Shining Through Me Every Day is a charming daily devotional filled with uplifting stories that cover many of the situations that make up life on earth. Jonis love and faith in God shine through each devotion. Its a bit like reading her personal diary. As I read through many of the devotions there were times that I felt like she was speaking directly to me, offering encouragement and insight into Gods word while she shares many of her personal experiences.
Each devotion is set up much the same way. It starts with the Date, followed by a scripture reference. I would recommend keeping your Bible handy so that you can look up the referenced scripture. Then Jonis thoughts. She shares words of thanks and praise to God, questions and word of acceptance and words of Love to our heavenly Father.
At the bottom of each page is a prayer. This is a great addition for any believer in Christ. Sometimes starting a prayer is the hardest part. When you cant find the words, this helps you start and you will find that the words just keep coming.
A Spectacle of Glory: Gods Light Shining Through Me Every Day is a great daily devotional that will help you showcase Gods glory every day in every way.

Joni Eareckson Tada has penned a devotional along with Larry Libby. A Spectacle of Glory, Gods Light Shining through Me Every Day, is published by Zondervan.
Tada, who is a well know author, artist, and speaker, has shared her faith for many years, focusing on God working in her life as a quadriplegic.
A Spectacle of Glory is a devotional that offers a daily mini study of scripture, based on Tadas observations and memories of her life, before and since the diving accident in 1967 that left her paralyzed from the shoulders down.
If youre looking for an in-depth study of Gods Word, then this isnt the devotional for you. If you are looking for a way to connect scripture to your everyday life, then you will be pleased with this offering.
If you are not familiar with Tadas work, then you might be surprised at the humor and the pure love of life that these short, daily examples of Gods Light Shining Through, provide. Whether she is reflecting on emotional struggles or memories of life as a child, the humility and total dependence on God shines through.
A big plus at the end of each days entry is a personal prayer that demonstrates her transparency, and allows the reader to pray along if similar issues are at hand in their lives.
Not everyone enjoys daily devotionals, but even if you struggle with them, each days entry is a doable length. For those who love devotionals, you will find this offering from Tada and Libby a treasure.

I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
A Spectacle of Glory by Joni Eareckson Tada with Larry Libby is a beautiful and thought-provoking daily devotional. Short, gripping anecdotes that appeal to a broad audience accompany a suggested Scripture reading and a prayer that can be used as a springboard to a more fulfilling prayer life.
Ive only read a sampling of the material at the writing of this review, but I look forward to using this devotional in my quiet time throughout this year and for many years to come. This is a beautiful, peaceful work that has helped me to quiet my mind and stop to consider what is truly important, thereby reducing the stress and anxiety that has become my normal over the last few years.
