If you think the Christian life is one precious moment after another, you should read this book. And if you think the Gospel is all pap and saccharine, you really should read this book. But if you, like me, long for a devotional that is sharpening, witty, and downright real, well then, you simply must read this book. You will never see the story of the Bible-or your own place within that story-the same way again. Karen Swallow Prior, Ph.D., Author, Booked: Literature in the Soul of Me and Fierce Convictions-The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More: Poet, Reformer Abolitionist
As the title suggests, AK has indeed "nailed it"! This is a stimulating book as in "stimulate one another to love and good works." Not just a gentle invitation, Anne's insights and words shove the reader in the direction of holiness. This is most welcome fresh water from an ancient and deep well. Here is a book of reality: real reality that has nothing in common with television 'reality shows'. Here are real devotional words about our real God and His ways. AK's stated goal is that this book propel you to read The Book, and I kid you not, by page 8, I had my Bible open looking for a cross reference. Each devotional is unfinished enough that it pushes you back to the Word: "did that really happen? Does it really say that?" This book has the tone of a whispered conversation during church: intimate, choppy, big-eyed, by turns giggly and convicting. I read. I laughed. I teared up. I stopped and prayed. I went to the Word. Yeah, it's that kind of book. And every page points to God. Read this book! Highly recommended. Betsy A. Barber, PsyD Assc.

Anne Kennedy has put together insightful and rich meditations and reflections on various passages of Scripture for daily use. Don't use this unless you are ready to think and be challenged.

Relative to a remark somewhere in these reviews, I actually appreciate that the individual devotions are simply numbered and not dated. To me, there is nothing more self-condemning than picking up a devotional to see that I have missed the last 9 days in a row. When I open Nailed It to the next devotion, I don't have to overcome the hurdle of being a lousy Christian if I miss a day here or there. I also appreciate the effort to categorize the devotionals along with the index at the back. Nice touch.
I've been reading Anne Kennedy's blog writing for a number of years and was excited that she had put together a devotional. Today, I'm placing an order for a few more copies for some dear friends, and to have an extra copy in my office. It's Just That Good.
Her writing style is poetic but real, concise but deep.
Wish there were dates instead of numbers, or at least a conversion. And placed for me to write my own comments and insights.
