_Book_478_cover-186×300.jpg” alt=”A Year with Jesus” width=”186″ height=”300″ />This daily devotion comes in an attractive sturdy paperback book. It is not a purse size book! But I couldn’t find anything that I would leave out! My favorite aspect of this book was the organization. First of all it is a yearly devotion without dates!
The devotions are numbered day 1, day 2, etc. This allows you to start it anytime of the year without feeling like you are behind. Next the author has
included an extensive table of contents with the sections covering:
Love and Hate
Truth and Lies
Arrogance and Humility
Friends and Enemies
Belief and Disbelief
Patience and Impatience
Deserved and Undeserved
Good and Evil
Fidelity and Treachery
Life and Death
Each day covers just one page, with the Bible text at the top and covering five to ten verses. This keeps you in the Word, but isn’t overwhelming to someone who dreads reading or study. Be warned, R.P. Nettlehorst is not afraid to step on your toes, this is for your good and will help you grow in your Christian walk.
My one complaint about the book is the variety or bible translations that are used. Eight different translations are used as the author searched for verses to match the devotions. I believe that we should write starting with a verse in mind and not the other way around. However, there is a lot of good in this book and this should not be held against it.
