This is by far the best devotional I've found yet. I have search for a devotional that mixes a scripture reading with insightful application and had been fairly unsuccessful until now. I have been reading this daily on my Pocket PC and completely love it. There are times I want to call all my friends to tell them about what I've read. I have been a Christian for many years and have solid understanding of the word. Taking that into account, I don't know how great it would be for a new/baby Christian. Nonetheless, I have tried many devotionals and this is my favorite by far!
This is a great devotional book written specifically for men. Each day it gives some scripture to read and then a devotional for the day that goes along with the scripture. While it is intended for men to read through chronologically, it also has a very helpful index in the back that allows a man to quickly find devotions on various topics. The index is broken down into various easy to use categories. Though all the devotionals are helpful, there are a number on communication that are very extremely useful. There are also quite a few good ones on faithfulness and some on how to avoid evil. This book will not disappoint.
This is perhaps e of the worst devotional a I've ever completed. I've tried to figure out why, and I have some ideas, but ultimately whatever the reason it was a slog trying to get through this one.First and foremost, one would think a yearly devotional takes into consideration the seasons and celebrations typical to Christianity. At the very least appeal to the changing tights as we travel into certain holidays, and perhaps even relevant historical events.There's none of that here. As far as I can tell y get a rand passage, that ultimately does little more than just describes historical significance, with a light touching on how it may apply to men.Even taking that I t, I often struggled with the,light the author puts those in the ancient world in. For example (spoiler alert), the last devotional is Psalm 147. The author uses this as an example of how the Israelites had it together, and even with all of our technology, we are somehow missing the big picture and giving proper thanks to God. So... sure, that last part is the whole reason someone turns to a devotional. But I mean, let's think about it. The Psalm is written during the returning of the exiles. People that are missing it, and have missed it just as much as their modern counterparts. If anything, it's a call to... look how similar we are, despite the sparse of time.I tried to put the above aside, but I also struggled with the male stereotypes used in the devotional. Apparently we are all sports-watching, misguided leaders of the house, and struggling in our jobs, because of the very few devotional here that actually touch on issues unique to men, these were the common themes.I really did try to like it, and maybe it's something where there was an age-group mismatch (I'm in my thirties). However, as I read the last day, I finally smiled knowing it as over.I highly recommend Our Dailey Bread or My Utmost for His Highest.
I love it, I use it everyday. It's well put together and at times your reading from the same chapter of the Bible for different days. I highly recommend this book if your looking for a good devotional.
My walk and relationship with Christ as a man has been greatly helped because of this book. My wife uses the companion titled "Devotions for Women". My complaint is the misspellings, repeated words and some sentence structure.
I bought this for a young man who was visiting my daughter's family last Thanksgiving. He is Swiss, and builds helicopters for Christian missionary groups to use in the field to reach remote areas, mostly in Africa. He was touched someone gave him a gift ... Although he speaks 5 languages fluently, he noted this will definitely help him with reading English. Made a great choice, his delight was the biggest thank you.
EXCELLENT content. Gave four stars instead of five because the vocabulary level is very high, making it more difficult for the "average" guy to read. But the content is really great. If you read it on Kindle (or Kindle app on phone or PC), you can get definitions quickly and easily. It's fine for someone with a higher vocabulary (fine for me, in fact, because I am a reader), but it would be a challenge for a person who struggles with reading and therefore doesn't have a high vocabulary level.
Devotions for men is a short read every evening. They require less than two minutes. I was not impressed at first but I have come to like the devotions more and more. I started with the at the beginning of the new year. The author begins most every devotion with a little known historical reference. He expertly ties it to the text. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a short and yet relevant devotion for the day.
