God's Call to a Deeper Life (Book Review)


By Benjamin H. Liles

          I've read a couple of devotionals in my life. I have to say that Nancy Taylor's devotional is a beautiful work of art--and no pun intended here--in my book. The first thing i will mention is the book cover here: I think it's amazing and I don't normally like pink as a color. It just works. Also, the way the pages are: I numbered what appears to be six sections in which different versions of pink alternate between the two colors.


          Another thing I like is that it's as if she's walking you through different parts of the Bible. Within these pages it's as if she's doing her best to tell us how God feels about us, through certain passages. It's rather nice for a devotional. The other part is it reads like the Bible is intended: a love letter, much less like a devotional in that aspect. And the other thing I like is there are questions she asks after you read each day's devotional, as if she wants you to somehow apply this to your life.

          So, after careful consideration on what I believe she has written here it comes across as an Application/Devotional style kind of work. It works for me and I find i like it. It's refreshing and it's a different take on understanding our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who fulfills all scripture. It comes across as God's love toward us, in book form, and I consider it a true piece of art.

          I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale in the hopes of an honest opinion and review from me.
