Don't be confused like I was: this isn't a paperback version of "24 Hours..." (I obviously didn't read the title thoroughly enough.) It's the companion devotional.Each starts with a scripture, has the devotional (often with a story and/or call to act), and an ending prayer.
At a time when our world is in such a state of upheavel and the country of Haiti is suffering so deeply from a natural disaster, this small book has helped me to balance all of this trouble. I am quite familiar with Rev. Adam Hamilton and his writings and he has done an excellent job again of explaining things to us. Thank you for carrying this sort of quality material.
The study "24 hours That Changed the World" is excellent. Perhaps because of that my expectations for the devotional guide were too high. There is nothing wrong with it - it just does not pack the same punch as the book and video for the study. It is not necessary for participants to use the devotional guide with the study and if you are on a tight budget this is a place to save.
I read this on my laptop instead of as a book; this could be the reason I didn't care for it. I know that might sound weird but I like my devotions to be something I can snuggle up with and spend time reading. I don't have the same feeling for my laptop! That said, I like pretty much everything Pastor Hamilton writes and the daily entries were no exception for content although I'm not sure I retained much. Pretty sure it's not his fault!
24 Hours That Changed The World is a book we used in our church as a Lenten Study Guide. We read a chapter each week and then met for discussion. I am glad that it was available for the Kindle. Our ministers used the book for a sermon series also. Reading, hearing and discussing along with the Bible passages made the Lenten season more powerful than ever before. There is a video that goes along with the book and we used that as a part of our weekly meeting and discussion. 24 Hours That Changed The World-40 days of Reflection was a daily meditation book that we used for individual prayer time at home in addition to used the book.
This book gave an up close and personal view of Jesus' last days in an interesting and easy to follow manner. I liked it very much. It made me think and question ideas I had heard in the past. I do recommend it.
This book should be required by all Christian believers - it really examines the last 24 hours of time leading up to the death/crucifixtion of Christ and examines everything in a way I did not know and appreciate learning now on my Christian journey - a must for the Easter/lenten season
There are many questions about the event that I or ministers I hear consider.a lot of information that was new to me. I will used this devotional over and over. I have already started my second 40 day pilgrimage.
