Format: Hardcover
In 40 DAYS IN GOD'S BLESSING, a stand-alone follow-up to Rebecca Barlow Jordan's 40 DAYS IN GOD'S PRESENCE, readers will find accessible devotions suitable for weekly or daily quiet times.

Barlow Jordan mines the work of bestselling evangelical writers such as Max Lucado, Rick Warren, John Eldredge, Oswald Chambers and A.W. Tozer (with some surprise quotes by writers such as Eugenia Price) as she creates her devotions. Most readings include several personal and in-the-news type anecdotes, a retelling of a biblical story, and a take-away for the reader. Barlow Jordan's warm, personal style gives her devotions the feel of a short motivational pep talk.

Those familiar with Barlow Jordan's previous book, 40 DAYS IN GOD'S PRESENCE, will find the format comfortably familiar. At the end of each four- to five-page devotion is a "Personal Truth" that wraps up the point of the devotion, usually summed up in a single sentence ("Prayer changes the pray-er"). This is followed by a "Personal Prayer" that the reader is invited to pray to apply the devotional truth. ("Lord, I want to get to know you better. May I never stop depending on you. Change my prayer --- and my heart --- that it might reflect yours." ) Jordan follows this with a "Personal Question" for reflection, which lends itself to a time of self-examination or journaling a response. ("What has God taught you about himself through prayer?")

One of the best devotional essays explores what it means to give unselfishly. "This principle applies not just to financial blessings but to any way that God has blessed us. Blessings are to be shared, not hoarded." Barlow Jordan ends the devotion with a deeply moving story about Mother Teresa.

Format: Hardcover
By unlocking a treasure chest of Scriptural truths, gifted author Rebecca Barlow Jordan proves that life overflows with blessings too numerous to count. But you'll want to count them, savor them, and thank God for His lavish gifts. Though 40 Days in God's Blessings is an exciting start, Jordan equips you to discover blessings for a lifetime, even in unexpected places!

--Lynn D. Morrissey, CLASS/AWSA speaker and author of Love Letters to God: Deeper Intimacy through Written Prayer

In our quest for a deeper and more personal relationship with God, others' writings can often trigger just the connection that helps us grow in understanding and devotion. Rebecca Jordan has gleaned gems of wisdom from profound writers of the faith in this sensitive, beautifully written devotional. Like her other books, it's a lovely gift--perfect for a friend. I highly recommend it!

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jeanne Zornes on September 15, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Rebecca has a knack for leading us into scripture and discovering its everyday lessons. By structuring her book around a forty-day spiritual emphasis, she honors the Biblical number of a significant journey as she helps nudge readers closer to the heart of God. I found several chapters worth re-reading, including that for Day 11 on my favorite topic, encouragement, as demonstrated by the life of Barnabas and the loving persistence of a foster mother to a disabled child. The book abounds with encouraging, challenging examples of people who drew nearer to God. Each chapter takes about five minutes to read, but provides thought to reflect on through the whole day. This is not a "quickie" devotional book, but one for those who truly want to be changed "from glory to glory" (2 Cor. 3:18).
