God’s Call to a Deeper Life by Nancy Taylor Review

gc

Description:

God is calling to your heart from every page of His Word. Can you hear His voice? Or does it sometimes feel like you’ve read it all before, and the words enter your mind but fail to permeate your soul?

Get ready to experience Scripture in an entirely new way through these 366 devotions. Open your heart to God’s truth in a way that is clear, personal, and relevant to your life. Let these devotions bridge the gap between the eternal, unchanging words written in the Bible and your heart’s desire to connect with the One who cares most deeply for you.

My Thoughts:

First of all, this book is just my style…The cover has 2 beautiful shades of pink, with rose gold metallic lettering and a pretty floral design. The edges of the pages have 2 shades of pink in a striped design. There is a very nice dedication page if you want to gift this book to someone special. The end papers also have a pretty pink floral design. So…if you’re not a fan of pink, this may not be the book for you (but it’s my favorite color, so I love it!)

The book contains 366 dated devotions that are paraphrased by the author, written in second person, as if Jesus is speaking to the reader. I think it’s very  important for the reader to read the scripture first, then to go to the devotion as the word of God should always be our primary source. The author also states this in a “How to use this book” section in the beginning.

I found that the author did a great job at paraphrasing the verses to make them feel more personal to the reader. This would be a great devotional for when you are short on time. It only takes about 5 minutes to read both the chapter from the Bible and the devotion.

I like that the entries are dated but the reader can start at any time of the year. There is a pink ribbon bookmark to mark your place.

Overall, this is a great devotional that would make a nice gift.

My Rating:

4 stars

I received this book from Tyndale House Publishers to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
