Jesus said: "I am the true vine ... You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. ... If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love" (John 15:1-9). And in "A Year with Jesus: Daily Readings and Reflections On Jesus' Own Words" R.P. Nettelhors offers a reflective and moving devotional that will deepen your relationship with the Lord Jesus. The author delivers a volume that allows the powerful words of Jesus Christ to speak to your heart and touch your soul.

Themes and issues that "A year with Jesus" emphasizes are:
1. How to Discover a lasting Joy
2. The need for Meekness and Humility
3. The importance of Love and Grace
4. The essential need for Truth
5. How to deal with Doubt
6. The Fruit of the Spirit including how to grow in Kindness and Patience
7. Understanding Grace and Merit
8. Living a life aimed at Honesty and Faithfulness and additional indispensable teachings

Nettelhors provides many practical yet poignant applications of the teachings of Jesus as he carefully explains many delightful texts of Scripture. This volume will not only stir your heart, it will change your day as it helps to gradually change your life through the truth and love of Christ.

"Keep your eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God" (Hebrews 12:2).

Format: Paperback
This is a short daily devotional book, focusing on the teaching/words of Jesus. The idea is to help the Christian have a daily time of reflection and meditation on The Bible. The words of Jesus begin the devotion for each day. Each devotion should only take about 5-10 minutes to read. There are ten themes that this book focuses on.
1. How to Discover a lasting Joy
2. The need for Meekness and Humility
3. The importance of Love and Grace
4. The essential need for Truth
5. How to deal with Doubt
6. The Fruit of the Spirit
7. Understanding Grace and Merit
8. Living a life aimed at Honesty and Faithfulness

The premise of this book is great, however, the thoughts in each devotional don't always support the title. A lot of good material here, but a little more organization would have been better for a better flow.

I also did not like that the book flipped from one version of the Bible to another. The versions are somewhat conglomerated into each daily reading. I believe up to 8 different versions of the Bible could be used.

I personally believe that this devotional's premise of using the Words of Jesus as a daily encouragement would be awesome... I just felt that this book lacked a little continuity and organization... Maybe a "revised edition" would cure that!

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers <http://booklookbloggers.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.

I love daily devotionals and this book "A Year With Jesus" is special because it gives you a chance to "listen" to Jesus words every single day. Jesus' words directly quoted from the bible are shared daily, along with some reflections and insights that will comfort, inspire, challenge and encourage you because this book by R. P. Nettelhorst covers various topics including love, hate, truth, lies, arrogance, humility, good, evil and more.

Unlike the usual devotionals where the date is included, this book only labels each reading as Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and so forth. When you forget the day number, it's hard to know which page to read (especially if you missed reading the book for a few days).

I would recommend this book to those who love reading daily devotionals. It's a bit thick (about one inch) and about 6"x9" though, so it's the kind of devotional that you'll just have to read at home unless you have a big bag where you could place it.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for free from the publisher through Booksneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. All the points and views are 100% mine.

I recieved a copy of A Year With Jesus: Daily Readings and Reflections on Jesus' Own Words as part of the BookSneeze Blogger Review program.

A Year With Jesus is a collection of daily Bible readings, and reflections on those readings, grouped under one of ten broad sub-headings. Each daily reading takes up a full page, and includes the Bible passage in full, with the reflection below. Each reading would take less than five minutes to complete, making it a good way to begin a daily Bible reading habit.

One helpful thing about the book is that the days are numbered 1 to 365, instead of 1st January to 31st December. This means that the book can be started at any time of year, and it is less discouraging if you miss a day (or even a week) here and there, as you don't have the constant reminder that you're a day/week/month behind where you "should be".

The major drawback with this book is that it doesn't stick to one version of the Bible. Instead eight different versions of the Bible are used, and used on a regular basis, rather than using one version predominantly and using other versions on occasion where this is helpful. On any given week you could be reading passages from seven different versions of the Bible!

I think it is also lacking in encouragement to personal application. The readings and reflections offer no questions for personal reflections or suggestions on how to live out the passage.

I think this book would be most appropriate for a growing Christian wanting an introduction to daily Bible reading.
