“A Year with God” book review

“A Year with God” by R.P. Nettelhorst
“A 365-day devotional featuring the actual spoken words of God as presented in the Bible.
Too many times the impact and grandness of the actual words God spoke, as recorded in the Bible, are lost in the telling of the story. In A Year with God, the primary focus is to allow the scriptures that contain God’s dialogue and the revelations of himself to uniquely speak to the reader. The author follows each reading with insights and applications to help explain the context and nuances of the text. The unique titling of each meditation and the nontraditional themes and organization help bring God to our daily lives.”

My Thoughts-
This is a book/devotional that can be read for 365 days. I only read this book for two weeks for the purpose of this review.

Each day starts with a passage in Scripture and is followed by an explanation and application for what we read. I really didn’t like this devotional as I found it very dry and even though each day is only one page long it seems to drag on. I also feel lost sometimes when I read it.

The one positive of this book is if you need a quick pick-me-up for the day this book will work for you being each day is only one page long. I can tell a lot of thought and prayer went into creating this book and I feel bad not liking it and not being able to tell you guys it’s this great book. But this book is just not for me, it may be a perfect fit for others though.
