A couple of months ago I got the chance to review some of the devotional's for Faith Book of Jesus and I must say that any author who can quote `Good Will Hunting' while talking about Jesus has my attention.
Renee Johnson does that while encouraging 20-somethings to grow in a new and fresh way. With a acknowledgement of a messy spirituality and a raw unfiltered style Renee has written a devotional that should sit on the bedside of every 20-something Christ-follower you know.
Here is the cool part - you can sample what Renee is cooking before you buy it by visiting her website: [...]
So, go try it out and spread the word!
A one-year devotional, Faithbook starts off each day with a scripture verse with four to five reflective paragraphs capturing themes that are relevant to spiritual, emotional and relational development. The remainder of the page is filled with quotes by an actual members of the 20-something generation, short prayers, and suggestions for additional scripture reading.
What may really help a socially connected generation make good use of this devotional is the community section. Renee has created a website (faithbookofjesus dot com), where readers can share their own thoughts about the daily theme. I think readers will experience that more important than writing books, Renee is eager to connect with others in their faith journey. This book and her website are going to be great tools to meet that goal.
Another gift is Renee's vulnerability. Although the devotions are full of hope, this writer isn't afraid to be real. She is open about her struggles, both in the past as well as the current questions she is struggling with. This helps her devotional come across as a guide instead of a destination.

The second thing I noticed, which was much more interesting, was the things Johnson has added at the end of the devotionals. Since she's obviously aiming at a niche group, the "twenty somethings," she's included a quote from a "twenty something" on a topic related to the verse and devotional for the day. After this, she includes a brief, very informal prayer also related to the topic for the day, followed by a question or two for thought. One of the most interesting aspects is that she directs people to her website to explore issues further. This could potentially be a good way for Christians to share their lives with one another. The strength of the devotionals is that they're specifically targeted to twenty somethings, and I like some of the quotes from actual people. This is a unique and effective aspect of the devotionals.
But the devotionals themselves are very brief and often not very deep. Sometimes she helps you see things in a new way, but often there is simply very little meat, and she doesn't dig into the Bible verse of the day very deeply at all. Her devotionals don't lead directly to an encounter with Almighty God but are more focused on the individual twenty something she's writing to. Also, sometimes she gives immature or wrong advice.Read more ›
