Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The work of the best-selling author and renowned theological scholar J.I. Packer has been mined for this special compilation of daily devotions for Christians everywhere. Selections from many previous publications, including Rediscovering Holiness, Knowing God, and Keep in Step with the Spirit, are presented in bite-size chunks, guaranteed to feed the soul. Monthly topics like "God wills us to love and serve others" are supported with an expert blend of Scripture quotes, an appropriate extract from Packer's previous writings, and a thought for reflection?for every day of the month, throughout the year. In a compact and memorable format, this faith-confirming volume is a certain source of comfort and support for addressing life's many challenges. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
I was having some difficulty distinguishing between God's will in my life and my own will. I was searching for a book with the "magic" cure-all. As I browsed the shelves, I felt God-directed to buy this book, but at first I decided not to buy, and I left the store. However, some circumstances occurred immediately that lead me to feel that God WANTED me to buy this book. I went back to the store and bought it. I know that God directed this purchase. It has made a world of difference in my determining God's will in my actions. I still veer off a bit at times, but I continue to read and be guided by the daily devotions. I was going to buy one for a couple of friends, but I find it is now, sadly, out of print. A must buy for those in my same situation.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you are at all familiar with J.I. Packer, you know that he is a theological heavyweight who, for all that, is able to write in eloquent, warm, and practical ways about living the Christian life. This book is a sort of "best of" Packer, with some of the most powerful and winsome passages from his books, and I have found it profoundly helpful. Several of the day's excerpts I have copied out by hand in their entirety--and I don't recall ever doing that with a devotional book before. I'm buying several copies of this book for friends and family this Christmas.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Jennifer Presley on April 11, 2006
Format: Hardcover
After reading Oswald Chambers' My Utmost for His Highest for a couple of years, this all-year devotional fell terribly short of my expectations. The format is this: verse, excerpt from a writing of Packer, and a reflection question or statement. It's often difficult to see how the three connect. The passages leave me wondering what the point is. If you have better luck deciphering the page, good luck trying to apply it.

In short, it's a poorly designed, quite irrelevant collection of passages that are too short to stand on their own with purpose and conviction.
