On the inside are short, less than a half page and some are less than a quarter page, devotions written by some well-known theologians and some not-so-well-known writers. The writers are both male and female so the book will appeal to both male and female readers.
Below each day's devotion is a question related to the devotion and a lined section for writing your thoughts. The questions and the devotions they are related to are very thought provoking.
The idea of a devotional and a journal all in one book is a great idea. It is a great way to keep your thoughts a faith in check. The devotionals aren't so long that you take up all your time reading them and trying to decipher them. Instead, they are short, concise, and easy to digest. They are relatable, making the task of applying the devotional to your own life easy.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to journal. I also think it would be great for a college student or a new Christian. The dual devotional and journaling will help both individuals to check their lives and make sure they are following Christ on a daily basis.
I give this book 4-stars and not 5-stars, only because I would like to have seen each devotion build on the previous one. The devotions are very stand-alone which is not a good thing since they are dated and you want to keep your reader/journaler focused on the task at hand.
If you're looking for something short and sweet, pretty easy to keep up with on a daily basis, this book is for you. It doesn't contain enough lines for writing for the likes of me....but that's because I write big and write alot. There is just one page per day, and only one third of that page is for writing.
The essays by the different authors read much like a Max Lucado book (considering he is one of the authors, that makes sense). They are simple and quick to read. I think the essays were collected, and then a verse found to go along with the essay to print at top. Personally, I wish it was the other way around, since it would feel a little more like a Bible study then, rather than just Christian thought/opinion.
I believe it's a nice gift book, and really good for beginning Christians or Christians who are looking for a quiet-time help in a simple way. But I would not consider it a Bible Study book (doesn't go in-depth on the verses selected)
It's not terribly over-bearing, and is about 400 pages thick (1 inch). The binding seems to be sturdy, and doesn't look like it will fall apart with use.
from some of my favorite writers such as...
and many more.
One thing I appreciate about the God's Promises Devotional Journal (in addition to the spring green print!)
is that it is time manageable. Perfect for any time of life. You could keep it in the car,next to the coffee maker,
So this was happy mail to a journaling heart :).
(I figure since my thoughts "do"anyway my fingers should cooperate in pencil, ink or on computer keys).
(notice the faint leaf outline detailon the pages ')
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishing for the purpose of review.
I love the spacious writing availability. The devotions in this book are from some of the very best: Max Lucado, Billy Graham, Sarah Young and others.
