Fresh Every Day
I enjoyed this devotional book so much that I went through it (day by day) a second time! Of course -- not a substitute for Bible study, but an excellent "warm-up" before your own time of study in the Word.
First, a brief passage of scripture is quoted... Next, a discussion of what it means with some down-to-earth ideas of how it applies to everyday life... Finally, a prayer is written out to suggest to the reader his own personal response to God. The author has a way of challenging you to see your need and be ready for change. She stimulates you to think and study further in God's Word. After reading a chapter, now you are ready to open THE BOOK and dig out truths for yourself!
