365 Pocket Devotions - A Review

A Review

Devotions have been a part of my Christian walk since my early days of faith.  I enjoyed this set of themed writings supporting many of the areas in which our faith is challenged on a daily basis. The devotions are not dated - but they are numbered.   The daily devotionals include one page for each five days, and then two briefer half-page devotionals for (I expect) use during the weekend.  Hence, the first five devotions are one page each, then comes a single page with two shorter devotionals.  The devotion for “Day 8” begins the sequence again.

The devotions do not appear to be linked to each - related topics are scattered throughout the year.  However, unlike other devotional material I have reviewed, this book does include an index of themes in the back of the book.  

The devotional is co-published by WalkThruTheBible and Tyndale Publishing House.  Each day’s reading is relatively light - not designed for the individual looking for something with a lot of meat each day.  Having said that, they are practical, allowing the reader to link the scriptures back to his or her daily life.  There are days when the content would be just right for this review and day when he would be left looking for more.

The book is recommended for use at the bedside - either for use first thing in the morning or last thing at night.  It guarantees that God’s word has the opportunity to speak to the heart - regardless of how busy the day has been.    

This review is based on a free electronic copy of this book provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
