About the Author

Alan Robertson is the oldest of the four Robertson boys and the only one who isn’t on the Duck Dynasty® show (yet). He grew up hunting, fishing, and helping build the foundation of the family business in the 1970s and ’80s. Alan left the duck call business when he received the call for ministry in 1988 and served as a senior pastor in West Monroe, Lousiana, until 2012, when he, too, joined the Duck Commander clan to work with the family business. Alan received an Associate’s Degree from White’s Ferry Road School of Biblical Studies and a Bachelor in Ministry from Sunset International Bible Institute. He lives in West Monroe, Louisiana, with his wife, Lisa, his two grown daughters, and two grandchildren.

The Duck Commander Devotional

INTRODUCTION


THE WORD OF God has been a constant in the Robertson home since Dad became a Christian almost forty years ago. Whether we were discussing and debating at the dinner table, teaching in a small-group setting, or sharing with someone who doesn’t know the Lord, the Bible has been very near and dear to our family. Like every family, we get busy with life and need regular reminders to read, meditate on God’s Word, and apply it to our daily lives. Because our family understands this need, we wanted to write a daily devotional book to help guide others to the life-changing power found in Scripture.

Dad’s parents, Granny and Pa, helped us buy our home place on the river and lived next door to us when Dad became a Christian. They were retiring and wanted to fish, hunt, grow gardens, and be close to family in their later years. They also had a divine appointment to teach our family a lot of scripture. God knew that our family needed them nearby to help guide our young family in our Christian walk. They were totally committed to studying the Bible and shared so much of what they discovered with our whole family. Forty years ago, our two homes on the Ouachita River were guided by the Scripture, and that foundation has now grown to seven homes, with many more on the horizon as the Robertson family continues to grow. This book is really dedicated to Granny and Pa and the legacy they continue to grow in us concerning our love for the Bible.

We are all very excited about sharing some of our favorite passages and why they are special to us. You’ll find that some of the chosen passages are repeated by other family members—that’s because some of the same passages have significantly impacted different people in our family. If you have watched our television show, you know how much we like to talk and expound on things, and this devotional book is no different. You will find some lengthy passages that don’t need a lot said about them because there isn’t much to add to the power that God has instilled. You’ll also find other passages that spark a memory from our past, a challenge for our present, or a hope for our future. It is our prayer that those sentiments will bless your day and your spiritual walk.

We encourage you to read through the passage, message, and prayer more than once during the day and allow God’s Word to bless you and guide you in your daily walk with Him. We also challenge you to change whatever needs to be changed in your life to act in line with the truth of God’s Word. God says that his Word is active and sharp and was written to impact, shape, and transform lives and lifestyles.

If ever there was a time in our world that we needed to be guided by the principles of the Bible, it is now. So many people in the world are struggling for answers to their life issues, and the best guide and most absolute truth available is still the Holy Bible. We invite you to spend a year with our family. As we walk through passages from God’s holy words of truth and light, you will be blessed by the journey.

Just received mine today. And couldn't wait to open it. I have been longing for this book to arrive. I am a very spiritual person but not 'religious'. I don't believe in denominations, just God and Jesus Christ. I feel this family understands that and this book helps me focus more on what I believe I need, this country needs more of today. I have tried many, many times to read the bible but can't seem to get through the whole part about who begot who begot who. I don't even know where to start, so this was the devotional I have been searching for, for a very long time. Others I have looked at didn't speak to my heart like this one does.
Thank You so much!!

The Duck Commander Devotional by Alan Robertson is one of the finest devotionals I have seen. Rich in content and elaborately designed to have a pleasing look with a short inspiring message supplemented by a passage from the Scripture, and a prayer, this unique devotional comes from the stars of Duck Dynasty, although the compiler Alan Robertson is the only one who isn't on the Duck Dynasty® show yet.

A perfect gift for all occasions, this 365-day devotional published by Howard Books (October, 2013) will help and inspire you in your faith-walk and you will be blessed by the journey.

This is a nice daily devotional with submissions by all your favorite cast members of the show. Each day's entry has a Bible quote, a modern day comparison (or explanation), and a prayer. It is written at an adult level so my 8 year old son was lost. It is definitely "meat" not "milk".

Format: Hardcover
One of the unexpected blessings, if you will, of the television reality show Duck Dynasty is exposure to the Word of God. Skeptics may doubt the earnestness of the Robertson clan’s faith, but one thing they can’t dismiss is their sure confidence and testimony.

When THE DUCK COMMANDER DEVOTIONAL was announced, I thought it would be just another cash grab from television network A&E. And, it kind of is. But, let’s set that aside and focus on what this book is actually accomplishing—people spending daily time reflecting on Biblical scripture and ways to improve their lives. And that’s a good thing, right? No matter what your Christian affiliation, you’d have to agree with that, jack.

Amazon lists this devotional as being written by Al Robertson, but the entire family contributes to the devotionals throughout. Each day’s reflection starts with a Bible passage, then is followed by a personal Duck Dynasty-themed story, and then concludes in a prayer. Again—all good stuff, right? The stories are personal reflections that include the thoughts behind the daily verse(s) and sometimes includes additional versus to lookup.

As for the stories themselves, expect more of what you see in the show. If you’ve read either Si's or Phil's book, you’ll know what to expect. You won’t get insight into who these people are when they aren’t in front of the camera, but at least you’ll know what is par for the course.

The version I am reviewing is electronic, which is nice, but I would suppose the hardcover version to be superior; besides being a daily visual reminder, it would be the perfect edition to break out that ol’ yellow highlighter.

So, yes, A&E will be getting some more money off of this book, but if you devote yourself to daily reading, the results will pay off in dividends. Other devotionals may offer more content or a more focused message, but this is perfect for fans of the show coming back into reading their daily Word.

It has a family history inside of all the members, great short daily devotionals. My husband loves this show, and read through the beginning of this book right away, then moved onto the Duck Commander Family book to do some more reading until his next devotional day tomorrow. I've never seen him read a book for so long before he discovered Duck Dynasty. He also went through Phil Robertson's "Legacy" book in just a few days - couldn't put it down. We are both college educated and professionals with country roots, and we really enjoy the show, the family, the faith and the message. Our 3 sons love the show as well, and we love having something they can watch that isn't trashy and needing to be turned off. We support this family - they love God and they love people, and they have their priorities right, no matter how others criticize out of their own insecurities. 12 million viewers can't all be wrong. A&E, PLEASE don't take away wholesome entertainment like this - give us even more choices like D/D!!

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband but after looking through it, I plan on reading it myself! If you like the Robertsons, you will love this devotional. In addition, each day's entry is short, sweet, and easy to read within a matter of minutes. It should be very easy to read this devotional daily and not fall behind. Each day contains a Bible verse, very short story, and a quick prayer from a member of the Robertson family. They do a very nice job making the scripture relevant to modern life, and if you are a fan of Duck Dynasty, you will enjoy reading the stories. Great devotional. Oh, and it is meant to read one page a day for an entire year. Love it!

I was surprised by the genuine reflections given by Duck Commander family members. The prologue was also very interesting with the short bio of everyone in the family. It is easy to see that this family is devoted to their walk with Jesus. I love forward to daily reading the scripture and the devotions by the Duck Commander family.
