Format: Paperback
Daily meditations that whisk readers in one week from China, to Africa, to the Caribbean, to Central Asia are what make this book of missionary-authored devotional readings special. Popular speaker and writer Beth Moore ties the variety of voices together in an introduction and short essays that precede each month's theme. In this way readers explore topics like God's character, prayer, persecution, spiritual warfare, Christmas around the world, and others.

I am finding the devotional stories interesting and inspirational - a quick read at the beginning, middle, or end of the day. Considering they were written by a collection of nearly 300 people, the writing style is amazingly consistent. My only criticism is with the size of the font chosen for the prayers. It's tiny!

Altogether this is an excellent devotional to use for a year and then pass on to someone else. But be warned, the writers' enthusiasm about living for Jesus is contagious. Don't be surprised if a whole year of handling this book changes your life.

As we journey through our Christian lives, one of the most important things to remember is that we are not alone. Not only do we have the Holy Spirit in us, we also have brothers and sisters in the Lord. We can learn from each other and encourage one another through our experiences. Voices of the Faithful is a collection of stories and testimonies from Christians who are missionaries all over the world. Through the faith of other believers in the Lord, we will be spurred onto greater faith of our own.

In Voices of the Faithful, Beth Moore has compiled the stories of Christians into a concise devotional. There is a verse to go along with each daily text and a prayer at the end. The daily devotions are short, but profound. It is important for us as Christians to learn from each other and to encourage each other. Voices of the Faithful gives us opportunity to hear from believers that we otherwise would be unable to. There are testimonies from South America, Africa, Asia, and other places. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an encouraging daily devotional.

Summary: 'Voices of the Faithful' by Beth Moore is a collection of inspirational stories of missionaries, by missionaries, from around the world, put together for a year of devotional reading. Included is a verse and a prayer in each devotion.

Writing Style and Product: First off, the book itself is beautiful and well made. The writing style varies as the authors do, but the guideline is a story or experience told by a missionary, and how they saw a lesson or work of God in that experience.

Thoughts and Reading Experience: This book is definitely inspiring. It is such an encouragement to read the stories of missionaries from around the world and how God is working in their lives. The prayers written at the bottom of each page are a special touch, and a convicting reminder.

However, though I enjoyed this book, I would not recommend it as a daily devotional, because in my opinion, it lacked substance, and other great devotionals such as My Utmost for His Highest and Morning and Evening surpass it by far.
It is great for general reading, but not in my quiet time with God. I need something where I learn about God thoroughly, not just stories and experiences. Still, it is encouraging and lifts your spirit, as well as keeping you to base with missionaries. Too often we forget them, and this book is a great reminder for that.

I had the opportunity to review Voices of the Faithful Volume 2 in the past. When I realized that I could received the first volume of Voices of the Faithful I immediately jumped on the opportunity.

2011 is approaching fast and you might be wondering which devotional book you will read next year. If you want to be inspired by what people called to the Mission field are doing around the world, I would suggest that you consider Voices of the Faithful.

Each reading starts with a scripture which is linked to the devotion. After each devotion you will also find a prayer that you can say out loud or in your heart. And you also know who wrote the devotion so you can also pray for the person and the area where they work.

I find it is inspiring to read what missionaries are doing around the world. This book is giving us a glimpse of what is done for the Lord. Many times we wonder where our money goes and what is done. Voices of the Faithful is opening the window on the works of many.

We have friends who are missionaries in Thailand. They used to be in Chiang Mai but recently moved closer to where their ministry was which is close to the border of Burma. Compasio opens their doors for kids and women who need help. They also care for children of women who are in prison as well as abandoned ones. In a way, we are updated regularly on what they do for the people there. But having other stories from other missionaries is a blessing for anyone.

Let your heart be changed through 2011 while reading Voices of the Faithful. See that even missionaries go through hard times and that God is faithful for everyone who trust in Him. Believe in miracles. He is still moving all around the world...

A Devotional Book March 5 2006
By D. MILLS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a collection of short essays written by western Christian missionaries who are located throughout the world.

Beth Moore compiles this set of short inspirational readings (one for every day). Each reading is one page. The objective is that you read the short essay, all of which are based on Bible verses, and contemplate the teaching throughout the day.

The essays are arranged by subject. Each month has a different theme. February - the word of God. March - prayer. Etc. Each month's essays are preceded by comments by Beth Moore.

Some of the essays are very inspiring. It takes a couple of minutes to do the daily reading, but one can contemplate it during your daily commute or throughout the entire day. Some of these messages are that good.

However, Beth Moore's comments are my favorite part. She uses charm, wit and wisdom to arrive at a very entertaining writing style, and at the same time she is very effective at getting her point across, and her monthly introductions are perfect for setting up the theme for the coming month. But her short introductions are only to set the stage for the real stars of the book, the missionaries.

THANK YOU AND WHAT A WONDERFUL BOOK, MOST OF THE WOMEN COULDN'T STOP AND READ ON AND ON NOT WANTING TO STOP. THANK YOU GOD FOR YOUR DIRECTION AND THANK YOU BETH MOORE AND MISSIONARIES FOR MAKING THIS BOOK. IT NOT ONLY CHANGED OUR CHURCH BUT OUR LIVES. (WE WERE NEVER MUCH ON MISSIONS BUT WE SURE ARE NOW!) GOD'S BLESSING ON ALL OF YOU. A SISTER IN CHRIST.... MARILYN

Contrary to the Poisonwood Bible Feb. 26 2006
By Looking out and looking in - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Missionaries are faced with many uncertainties when entering the field. Reading the day-to-day devotions, the reader gets an very intimate look of how God works in the lives of people who are faced with dangers, sickness, atrocities, and religious persecution. He is truly great and I am blessed to have read this collection.

There is a total of 366 devotions (even one for Feb. 29th!), each being a different story and from all parts of the world. Some stories include (taken from the book jacket)

- A Christian claims the name of God at knifepoint- and lives to tell about it...

- Prayer revives a coma victim, in defiance of village witch doctors

- An abused 7-year old asks, "Do you have any pills that would give me hope?"

- Prayerwalking college students lay a foundation for spritiual revival in West Africa

- A former Muslim finds forgiveness in the Jesus she denied.

A great collection of true-life stories. Missionaries go all over the world to do His work and many come back with amazing stories to tell. You'll be amazed what these people go through, espeically when we worry about the day-to-day. Perhaps this book will even help you to know if you want to be a missionary or not. If you've been entertaining the idea, then this book may help.

Voices of the Faithful Dec 14 2005
By T. Mcclanahan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you want to understand what God is doing in the world and in the lives of Christians you should read this devotional . It has some great stories and is written by Missionaries. Beth Moore co authored it but I am sure she would be the first to tell you the stories were writen by the sweat and blood of the missionaries on the field for God. I love this what a great gift for CHRISTmas eternal Life.
