God's Love Letters To You by Larry Crabb
I have long dreamt of putting together a sermon series that would allow me to walk through, albeit, briefly, each book of the bible. When I first saw this title, I thought that it might provide a foundation toward accomplishing that goal. Alas, it does not.
The devotionals are well written and allow one to explore and evaluate one's spiritual life. Yet to say that these books are based on each book of scripture is only loosely true. Unless the books have been read prior to picking up God's Love Letters To You, the devotional do little to introduce the reader to the various books. Scripture readings are often pulled from other parts of scripture, there are no suggested readings associated with each book, and the reader is left to his own devices to discover the connection between each days devotional and the particular Bible book being examined that day.
This book could be helped if used along side Henrietta Mears' What the Bible Is All About or some other simple Bible survey. This little gem would provide the Bible background needed to understand the book - while God's Love Letters To You provides the motivation to better understand each book.
