Pastor Tullian conveys the same truth each and every day using different stories to communicate that truth. His devotions are totally relatable. These aren't "lofty" expositions on Christian doctrine. They are easy to read and easy to digest and believe. I dare anyone to use this devotional for an entire year and come away feeling guilty and burdened and fearful of our Holy God. If this devotional does not change your perspective about God's love for you, then you are either incapable of or unwilling to "get it". It will affect the way you listen to and interpret sermons at your church, the books you read, the media you listen to or watch. Everything begins to be measured against the truth of the completeness of Christ's work of salvation and there is simply no necessity to try to improve on it. It frees you from your to-do list for how you can become a "better Christian".
This devotional speaks truth, and the truth will truly set you free! You'll learn that the shackles you have been wearing, that you wish you could unlock and free yourself from, were never really locked at all. Jesus has always been your key. All you have ever needed to do is simply slip them off. This devotional will help you get them off by reassuring you of your freedom.
This devotional surprised me because it's basically any typical one you would grab off a shelf. It has a verse at the top and then a couple, or few paragraphs, on His thoughts about it. Basically "My Daily Bread" sort of thing.
Now, don't get me wrong. There's nothing wrong with that. I have an app on my phone that does the same basic thing. I just expected a bit more from him. It's a good tool to use alongside time spent in the Word. It is certainly not an "everyday devotion and that's as deep as you go" kind of book.
Overall, it is clear. He's a brilliant man, so he speaks as such. It's got some good "meat" in it, but it is just less than I expected. He really has the ability to create a much more in depth devotion.
On a side note, I do feel that is something that is really lacking in devotion materials. They are all kind of the same little thing. Verse here, quip here, go on your way. Some even go as far as a little verse at the bottom. How about something with verses, questions with spaces for you to answer, depth, digging into the Hebrew, Greek, and context? I feel like it is quite patronizing that we are being fed such little devotionals, as if that's going to sustain us. So, for me, I understand that means I need to supplement. But not everyone realizes that and uses it as their time with God between church every Sunday.
I do thank you, netgalley, for sending this book my way. I was curious about it and wanted to see what he was going to bring to the table. Here's to many more!! (:
Extremely disappointed. I would never recommend this book. And I will promptly discard it.
