Book Review: A Year with God

A Year with God: Daily Readings and Reflections on God’s Own Words, by R. P. Nettelhorst is a daily devotional book.  This insightful book is about “making His thoughts your thoughts,” by focusing on the actual words from God mentioned in the Bible.  According to page 16, “A Year with God is a 365-day revelation of God’s divine character through His words, with accompanying insight and commentary written in everyday language.”

The ten main sections consist of the following topics:  hope and fear; love and hate; perseverance and quitting; faith and doubt; loyalty and betrayal; companionship and isolation; mercy and judgment; forgiveness and anger; joy and sadness; peace and conflict.

These 365 daily devotionals each contain a scripture passage, with the text included in the book, and a devotional to read each day.  Every devotional is marked by day (not date), so you are able to start reading at any time throughout the year.

With one devotional per page, this book may easily be added to your current quiet time, or it’s a great way to a start setting aside time each day to spend with God.  A Year with God is an ideal devotional for any age, from teenagers to grandparents.  Enjoy spending time “making His thoughts your thoughts.”

Note: I received this book from Book Sneeze, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
