Sarah Young and her husband are missionaries who spent years in Japan and Australia sharing the love of Jesus with others. During her time spent teaching others about Christ, she kept a journal and wrote down thoughts and words she felt coming from Jesus as well as Bible verses that spoke to her. It was through this writing that "Jesus Calling" came about and she was able to turn it into a devotional for everyone to use.
The devotions included in this book are written from the perspective of Jesus speaking to the reader. There is one page for each day of the year, including February 29th. Each page contains a couple of paragraphs with devotions for that day and some Bible verses pertaining to that day's devotion which you can look up in your Bible. She has also included some Scripture references within the devotions that are indicated in italics. This book measures 4 1/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches by 1 inch and is a nice hardcover. It contains 384 glossy pages, including some introductory pages which I recommend reading. There is also an attached ribbon bookmark so you can easily mark your spot. Unless indicated, the Scripture references are taken from the New International Version of the Holy Bible.
I love Jesus Calling and am so glad I was introduced to it! Most of the time I find myself reaching for it when I'm having a rough day and it helps me to relax and feel peaceful. I strive to read it everyday, whether I'm having a good or bad day, because the words in this book make me feel more positive no matter what. Since each page only takes about a minute to read, this book would be great to read in the morning while enjoying a cup of coffee and a few minutes of solitude, since many of us lead busy lives. I have friends who love these books as well and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase these as gifts for anyone who I think would enjoy them. If you, or someone you know, are looking for a daily devotional, I highly recommend this one. I also purchased Jesus Always: Embracing Joy in His Presence and Jesus Today: Experience Hope Through His Presence because I love these devotionals. I love the devotions in it and feel it is well-worth the money to spend on it!
The book itself is aesthetically appealing without too much "fuss." It seems durable and well-crafted.
I recommend this book to anyone as a nice addition to their daily devotional time.
