One can start reading on any day.

I like how the wording to the daily devotions are very practical and easy to apply to everyday applications.

His devotional The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge is exactly what one would expect from Tony Dungy.

Format: Paperback
The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge focuses on seven themes: Core, Family, Friends, Potential, Mission, Influence, and Faith. The devotions rotate through each of the seven themes and each devotion stands on its own.

Each day's reading begins with a passage of Scripture. Not just the reference, but the entire verse or verses, already printed on the page. I love that!

The devotion that follows ties to the verse and the theme for the day, usually with a story from either family or athletic life. Each day concludes with an Uncommon Key - a brief take away or action point based on the day's reading.

I found the devotions to be straightforward and easy to read. The devotional is geared toward men (and I think that's great!) but I found the readings to be quite applicable to me as a mom as well.

While I like the book, I like the purpose behind the book even more. Coach Dungy is challenging men - and women - to live Uncommon lives and the key to beginning that process is to spend time with God. EVERY DAY.

**I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I have to admit, before I received this book I had no idea who Tony Dungy was! Come to find out, he is a Super Bowl - winning coach! [Even I know what the Super Bowl is!]

Not being sports minded, however, I was a bit trepidatious at reviewing this book. I mean, what was this coach going to tell me about life's daily challenges! I even said so to Texican, my dh, who usually reads everything I do, but after I have reviewed it.

"Honey, give it a chance!" he coaxed me.

"Why don't you read it then?" I asked. I thought perhaps he could read it, give me his thoughts on it, and then I could simply re-write those thoughts as my own review. After all, that would be just as good, right?

"Babe, that wouldn't be very honest," he warned.

So, I sat down one evening, wrapped in my favorite afghan, with a cup of warm cocoa, and opened the book. 'I'll just give it a good skimming, and then write the review from that,' I promised myself.

Five and a half hours later, I finished the last page and sat there stunned that I had read a daily devotional completely through without even taking a break.

Yes.... Tony Dungy is that good!

Super Bowl-winning coach? Well, I can't say anything about that, except that if this man coaches football anywhere near as excellent as he can coach Christians into an 'Uncommon' walk in this life, there's no wonder his team has won such an honor!

I've used daily devotional's before, mostly as a guide when I was feeling lazy about coordinating my personal Bible study time. But this book is something that will lead you along paths of walking a different life than the world about you. An Uncommon Life!. This is one devotional that will be used again, and again, and again!

An exceptional book of daily devotions for anyone but specially for men. Tony Dungy has a way of sharing his faith that is real and offers advice that is followable. This book is appropriate regardless of where you are on your faith journey.

Having been inspired by previous works from the Dungy/Whitaker team, I was eagerly awaiting a similar experience with "Uncommon Life" when I bought it almost a year ago. Well, unfortunately it has sat in pretty much the same spot on my dresser for the past year, as I have struggled to get through even the first month or so of devotions.

Now, I have to preface the following critique by saying that perhaps I just am not experienced in the ways that typical devotion books are formatted. However, there are two main reasons why I was so disappointed with this book:

1. The material is just so generic. Yes, it does focus on a key bible verse each day, but, whereas in the past the appeal of these books was the lessons learned from Dungy's personal life struggles/experiences, here it just seems like standard fare. Like I could have just bought any old devotion book and gotten the same material.

2. Each day's passages were so short and succinct that I felt like I had to read more just to get my daily dose of spiritualism. But then, of course, I was missing the whole point of "daily devotions".

Overall, with those two previous points combined, I was never even able to completely make my way through this book. Like I said, maybe I'm just too new to the whole "daily devotion" concept, but this one did not capture my interest enough to earn my time each day.

I bought this book as gift for my young adult son. He said that he likes the format of the book as well the short daily reading. I am planning to buy additional copies for other men in my life.

We bought several dozen for our men's group and used them to set up a buddy system with the guys reading the same entry each day.
