ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

No matter what he is writing, Jonathan Rogers is motivated by the astonishing reality of God’s transforming grace in the lives of human beings. He is passionate about seeing the truths of Scripture bear fruit in the lives of students – lives of integrity, purpose, and joy. That passion is reflected in his books, including Words to Live By for Teens, What Really Counts for Students, and his Wilderking Trilogy of adventure novels – The Bark of the Bog Owl, The Secret of the Swamp King, and The Way of the Wilderking. Jonathan holds a PhD in English literature from Vanderbilt University. He lives with his family in Nashville Tennessee.

SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:

This year-long devotional is both unique and simple by targeting the general reader, both men and women. Features include:

–A comprehensive overview and accompanying meditation for each passage;

–Daily encouraging and engaging scriptures that focus on the Bible passages that reveal the divine character of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit; and

–Insightful comments and applications to daily life.

My Thoughts:

I think this is a great book to have on those days when you only have 5-10 minutes for devotions. I would have liked it even more if it would have been KJV instead of one of nine versions (CEV, ESV, HCSB, Message, NASB, NCV, NIV, NKJV, and NLT), a random version everyday. Overall, I would recommend it.
