Christian Book Review : A Year with Jesus

Goodreads' description : A 365-day devotional featuring the actual spoken words of Jesus as presented in the Bible.
Too many times the impact and grandness of the actual words Jesus spoke, as recorded in the Bible, are lost in the telling of the story.
In A Year with Jesus, the primary focus is to allow the scriptures that contain Jesus' dialogue 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 Jesus to our daily lives
My review : I've been reading this book daily for about a month now. I absolutely love it. I've only gotten to the "Love and Hate" section. I can't wait to get to the rest which include "Truth and lies, arrogance and humility, and friends and enemies". It is great to hear exactly what Jesus said about certain topics. It puts the bible into perspective and shows how you can relate it to your everyday life. This book is obviously a little preachy, but not in a bad or annoying way. If you are buying this book, you are probably looking for a little guidance in your life anyway, so it isn't a bad thing. The daily devotionals are a bit longer to read than other devotionals I've read, but I liked that about it. 

I'd definitely recommend this book to any Christians who are looking for a daily devotional or to someone who just wants to look a little bit closer at Jesus' life. 

I received this book for free from Booksneeze. I was not paid for my review and the opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
