NKJV, Wiersbe Study Bible, Leathersoft, Black, Red Letter Edition, Comfort Print By Warren Wiersbe

225_350_book.2764.cover_Warren Wiersbe and his “Be” series is a very popular series on Christian growth and development. It has aided many in their Christian walk and some of his book are used as readings in some of the Bible classes I have taken. Now, with the introduction of the Wiersbe Study Bible, Wiersbe’s thoughts and notes are in a Bible to aid those reading the Bible.

The articles are not lengthy and do not interfere with the reading of the Bible. The study notes are succinct and those who have read the “Be” series will appreciate having notes close to the text.

The Bible itself is well bound and I really liked the silver gilt on the paper. The Bible is a bit on the heavy side so it is most likely not ideal for a lot of carry. The font is the comfort font meaning it is easy to read but please note this does not mean large print font.

All in all this is a nice study Bible and I believe will help those in their Christian walk.

Dinosaur Devotions by Michelle Medlock Adams


My sons love dinosaurs and when this book came to print I was excited to show it to them. While the target audience is 8-12 years old and my sons are four and three years old, it is still a great devotional to use.

The correlation between the different dinosaurs and truths of God’s Word is well done and makes teaching truths relevant and personal. While some of the content is geared towards the target audience I still use the devotions and modify it as needed for my boys. Thus, this is a great devotional for the dino-lover in your family no matter the age; even I enjoy them.

Grace, Hope, and Love MyDaily Devotional By Johnny Hunt

225_350_book-2419-coverThis devotional is a collection of thoughts by various pastors and assembled by Pastor Johnny Hunt. It is a daily devotional with a verse, a thought, and a prayer. Each thought is based on a week’s worth of thoughts by each pastor.

I found the thoughts a bit stereotypical for a devotional. It seems to be typical of devotionals of this nature. I really did not get a depth or richness of spiritual thought from this devotional but I tend to see this encouraging more than challenging spiritual development.

The Satisfied Soul by Dr. John Piper

Satisfied SouDr. John Piper has a way of drawing me towards the realization that Christ is everything. His materials and sermons have impacted greatly and it is true of his newest devotional The Satisfied Soul. This work is the collection of three previous works: Pierced by the Word, Life as a Vapor, and A Godward Heart.

By combining these works into a devotional reading Dr. Piper has written a wonderful book to challenge the reader each day of the 120 day readings to see God, and Christ, as supreme. I have been throughly challenged by the readings I have done and am being left to read more.

These work should be considered for those who want more from a devotional than just a verse or two and a thought. If you want richness and depth I highly recommend this work.

#Truth by Josh McDowell

truthJosh McDowell is a favorite author of mine.  I recall reading Right From Wrong and Truth Slayers through my high school years. When I became a youth pastor I used McDowell’s books to help me teach high schoolers in a way that related to them.

McDowell has taken his love of truth and youth and combined them into a devotional to strengthen his readers to know the truth. With devotions on truths for: the existence of God, God’s Word, God becoming human, and more, McDowell’s book will be a great resource for daily assurance that truth exists and it is to be found in God.

A Day at the Beach by Jedd Hafer and Todd Hafer

978-1-4964-1487-8Sometimes we just want to get away and relax. To just have a few moments of refreshment and mental peace. Jedd and Todd Hafer have had these moments too. They wanted to get away; to go to the beach.

In their small devotional, A Day at the Beach, the Hafers write quick thoughts to give the reader a chance to reflect, ponder, and meditate on God; on His peace and His love. They want they readers to take those “day at the beach” moments to draw closer to God and not get weighed down by the grind of life.

I found this small book an easy read to challenge my thoughts. While I tend to read more heavier devotionals (My Utmost for His Highest and The Valley of Vision to name two) sometimes the simplicity of a devotional is needed. This book does just that; power in simplicity.
