Designed for Devotion


Title: DESIGNED FOR DEVOTION
Author: Dianne Neal Matthews
Publisher: Baker Books
September 2012
ISBN: 978-0801072734
Genre: Devotional

DESIGNED FOR DEVOTION is a 365-day journey from Genesis to Revelation. Since there is no better way to know God more intimately other than to immerse yourself totally in His Word, DESIGNED FOR DEVOTION is designed to do just that. It combines fascinating historical background information about the Bible with practical application you can implement in your life each day. This devotional will take you through the Bible from beginning to end.

Key stories, characters, and basic teachings are highlighted. Old Testament passages that reveal Jesus as the Messiah are explored. There are historical information about each book of the Bible, including author, theme, and purpose. The Old and New Testaments are tied together to show the Bible as a single story. There is an application that will apply each day’s lesson to your own spiritual journey.

I love getting devotionals to review, and DESIGNED FOR DEVOTION is a good one. It begins with a portion of scripture for you to read from the translation or version of your choice, then it talks about the story and flows seamlessly into the application. Then it closes with another verse for you.

DESIGNED FOR DEVOTION is an excellent devotional book for yourself or for a friend. This would be a great gift for someone during the upcoming holiday season too. If you are looking for a new devotional then consider DESIGNED FOR DEVOTION. I enjoyed using it with my children when we had our family devotions. Recommended. $16.99. 384 pages.
