Review: Abundant Life Book

"The Abundant Day Book" surprised me. I'm not normally a devotional sort of person, but this small, beautifully laid out and designed (and good smelling - I know, I'm weird) made me think with each of its daily devotions. The book included a year's worth of daily devotions. Each devotion includes a Scripture, the beginning of a prayer and a short note "from God"written by Nancy Guthrie and based on the Scripture of the day.

According to her bio, Guthrie teaches at her church. I'm not sure in what capacity that is, so I'm a bit uncomfortable with her as the author. I also do not like that she chooses to use the New Living Testament version of the Bible, which is more of an interpretation than a translation. Still, the translation does not appear to affect the effectiveness or accuracy of the devotions presented, and the devotions are very thought provoking. Despite my reservations, I enjoyed this devotional and would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale House in exchange for my honest review.
