I guess they are often found in restaurants, coffee chops etc.. in the North Eastern US . (According to here-say) Thankfully these have been bound together in book form so those of us who never knew of them can have the opportunity to now spend some truly high quality devotional time with the Creator. I personally like simple, straightforward, messages that get to the heart of the matter being discussed. The daily readings in this book provide just that!
It's simple, you are given a passage of scripture to read, then, you have a story from somebody's modern life experience, and a prayer to follow. Not hard, not too time consuming, just right for the person on the go , or the person who is at home and finds the daily chores of living to be overwhelming. (Can you say "AGG! Not another of the cat's hair balls?")
In a world where it becomes increasingly difficult to find 'shoot from the hip' Christian food for thought, this book delivers just what's needed for the day that can often require so much of our time. Now one can have the time to feel spiritually refreshed every day. I was searching for quite some time for a decent daily devotional. The search is over, thank you Father, Son & Holy Spirit for the folks who put this clear, concise, book together.
The devotionals in this book are very insightful. They provide a deep look at certain passages of the Bible and how they apply to everyday life. Whether you're a man or a woman, a boy or a girl, there's plenty to learn in here. For instance, one page covers how, as we age, we become less attached to the material world due to our aging bodies; growing old isn't all that bad because it redirects our priorities. And, sometimes, the book simply reminds you of a truth that you should always hold dear. For example, we should never sell our souls for material things: they aren't worth the price!
I also find it helpful that the main message is summarized in a sentence at the bottom of each page. This makes it easy to remind yourself of past messages just by flipping through the book. There is usually a short four-line poem at the bottom of each page as well.
The binding is nice and sturdy, and the page edges have a gold color to them, making it a pretty book. Also, there is a bookmark ribbon.
It's amazing how much meaning they can put in just a page. The messages never struck me as particularly conservative or particularly liberal, so I could recommend this work to any Christian.
