At 8 and 5/8" by 5 and 1/2" with a 2" spine the Jesus Calling Devotional Bible fits my preference for a well-weighted Bible with a thick spine. The padded hardcover is nicer than a plain hardcover and the graphics are attractive. The spine is obviously glued and the size of the book block makes me fairly sure that the spine would not hold up to constant use; however, this is a devotional Bible and most users probably won't make this a lifetime Bible. It should hold a couple years under average use. There are also leathersoft editions available which may feature a sewn binding.Read more ›
I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of anyone writing a first person narrative from Jesus' perspective. Didn't Jesus already say everything that was necessary in the Scriptures? I can be a dangerous thing to write using the voice of Jesus because a human cannot know exactly how Jesus would answer another person's prayers. HOWEVER, I was pleasantly surprised to see that all of Sarah Young's writings included in this devotional are based on three or more parts of Scripture. Essentially she is just rephrasing what Jesus has already said in a way that relates specifically to our particular time and culture. The truths she bases her `answers' on are biblical.
This book is well made; the cover is very smooth and has a soft feel to it, although it is a hard cover book. The typeface is easy to read and there are highlighted verses that are expanded in lightly colored boxes throughout. There is a helpful topical index as well as a devotional index. I think I will really enjoy using this Bible for years to come.
So, if you already have a NKJV bible and you own Sarah Young's devotional books (with 365 devotionals per book), you will be better off without this bible. It only has 260 selected devotionals, not 365 devotionals times 3 books = 1095 devotional days. I give this bible 3 stars because there is nothing new in this bible. In fact, I feel you are better off just buying Young's 3 books and hanging on to your current bible. Essentially, this only appeals to me as a "gift bible" to give away to someone who is not familiar with Sarah Young, or someone who is a HUGE fan of Young's.
Now, if you are not familiar with Sarah Young, she writes devotionals "from Jesus' point of view/perspective." She says that she began "listening" to what Jesus spoke to her as she read the Bible. So all her devotionals are from Christ's point-of-view. It is as if Jesus is speaking directly to you. Many find these "words directly from Jesus" to be very inspiring and helpful. Others may find this to be blasphemous because Young is writing words as if her words are being spoken by Jesus. So I will leave it up to the reader to decide where to draw their line.
My disclaimer - I received this book from the publisher but I always give brutally honest reviews. I want you to be able to choose the best book based on stars because I know you have limited time and energy to read.
