Jesus said: "I am the true vine ... You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. ... If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love" (John 15:1-9). And in "A Year with Jesus: Daily Readings and Reflections On Jesus' Own Words" R.P. Nettelhors offers a reflective and moving devotional that will deepen your relationship with the Lord Jesus. The author delivers a volume that allows the powerful words of Jesus Christ to speak to your heart and touch your soul.

Themes and issues that "A year with Jesus" emphasizes are:
1. How to Discover a lasting Joy
2. The need for Meekness and Humility
3. The importance of Love and Grace
4. The essential need for Truth
5. How to deal with Doubt
6. The Fruit of the Spirit including how to grow in Kindness and Patience
7. Understanding Grace and Merit
8. Living a life aimed at Honesty and Faithfulness and additional indispensable teachings

Nettelhors provides many practical yet poignant applications of the teachings of Jesus as he carefully explains many delightful texts of Scripture. This volume will not only stir your heart, it will change your day as it helps to gradually change your life through the truth and love of Christ.

"Keep your eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God" (Hebrews 12:2).

Format: Paperback
A Year with Jesus by R.P. Nettelhorst is a daily devotional book that is based entirely on the words of Jesus that are recorded in the Bible. The words of Jesus from a chosen scripture begin the page for each day and that is followed by the words of the author as he gives his insight and explanation for the scripture passage.

The book is broken down into sections on different subjects. The divisions are Love and Hate, Truths and Lies, Arrogance and Humility, Friends and Enemies, Belief and Disbelief, Patience and Impatience, Deserved and Undeserved, Good and Evil, Fidelity and Treachery, and Life and Death. Under each division there are numerous entries with the words of Jesus that deal with that particular subject.

Personally I like for daily devotional books to be numbered with the date and this would be the only thing I do not like about the book. For this reason, the first thing that I did after receiving the book was to date each page to make it easier for me to follow. I would recommend this book to anyone to use during their morning or evening quiet time with God. It is also a great book to pick up at any time and randomly pick a page to read or to read an entry on a specific subject.

Format: Paperback
I recieved a copy of A Year With Jesus: Daily Readings and Reflections on Jesus' Own Words as part of the BookSneeze Blogger Review program.

A Year With Jesus is a collection of daily Bible readings, and reflections on those readings, grouped under one of ten broad sub-headings. Each daily reading takes up a full page, and includes the Bible passage in full, with the reflection below. Each reading would take less than five minutes to complete, making it a good way to begin a daily Bible reading habit.

One helpful thing about the book is that the days are numbered 1 to 365, instead of 1st January to 31st December. This means that the book can be started at any time of year, and it is less discouraging if you miss a day (or even a week) here and there, as you don't have the constant reminder that you're a day/week/month behind where you "should be".

The major drawback with this book is that it doesn't stick to one version of the Bible. Instead eight different versions of the Bible are used, and used on a regular basis, rather than using one version predominantly and using other versions on occasion where this is helpful. On any given week you could be reading passages from seven different versions of the Bible!

I think it is also lacking in encouragement to personal application. The readings and reflections offer no questions for personal reflections or suggestions on how to live out the passage.

I think this book would be most appropriate for a growing Christian wanting an introduction to daily Bible reading.

I've said it before, and I'm going to say it again; devotionals are one of my favorite types of books in the whole wide world! So when I got the chance to receive and review this new devotional by R.P. Nettelhorst titled, "A Year With Jesus", I was stoked! It's a 365-day devotional which I also love since that way I get a bite sized surge of encouragement every single day!

The back cover reads, "The Greatest Person Who Ever Lived Wants to Spend Time With You. There's no one like Jesus in all of history. He touched hearts and changed lives everywhere he went in his thirty-three years on earth. Each person who spent time with him was never the same.

Jesus' words and actions, which have spanned the centuries, are just as relevant and important for you today. When you spend time with Jesus, you'll soon discover that what matters to him most of all is you.

A Year With Jesus is an unforgettable 365-day revelation of Jesus' love through his actual words, plus reflections and insights to encourage and inspire you. Let his words comfort you and fill your heart and life. As you connect more deeply with the Greatest Person Who ever lived - this Person Who knows you and cares about every detail of your life - you'll find yourself living and loving with greater peace, promise, and purpose."

WOW. Just WOW. Jesus' words are where it's at, and what it's all about so naturally I'm drawn to books that center on His words, and this book nails it!

I la la LOVE this devotional, and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking to grow in their relationship and daily walk with Jesus. A very powerful and resourceful book!
