BOOK REVIEW - JESUS CALLING



What a lovely gift book that just fits in the palm of your hand. It contains short devotions for every day of the year. Each day presents a new thought or a new focus that is given to the reader as if Jesus Himself were speaking. It may stump some people that the author writes in this manner, but the reader must remember that this is what Sarah perceives, i.e. her inspirational diary.

The author and her husband have been missionaries, planting churches in Japan and Australia. Reading Sarah’s daily devotionals one gains a deeper perspective of her desire for intimacy with the Lord. She had been journaling faithfully as she studied God’s Word, but felt that when she wrote a monologue, she was doing the talking. When prompted in her spirit to start writing down what she felt that the Lord was impressing upon her heart for that day, she realized that this was now more a dialogue!

Sarah reminds readers that her writings are not inspired as are the Scriptures, but that what she was writing was indeed consistent with the unchanging standard, the Word of God.

This little treasure is intended to be read one day at a time, with the Bible open to the verses beneath each devotional. These mini messages can focus your personal time of reflection on the circumstances of your own life that need to be addressed; one nugget of truth, on which you can meditate throughout the whole day.

I would have preferred that the Scriptures listed at the end of each devotional be written out, rather than one having to look them up.

Enjoy! It's an inspirational gift book!
