Book Review: A Year with Jesus


A Year with Jesus: Daily Readings and Reflections on Jesus’ Own Words, by R. P. Nettelhorst is a daily devotional book. 

According to the Introduction, on page 16, "We have a wonderful opportunity to get to know Jesus through the Bible.  We can hear directly from him with his own words spoken in a variety of circumstances to a variety of audiences.  Through these words we can learn who Jesus is and what matters most to him....  Spend a year with Jesus.  Listen to his heart as you contemplate his words."

The ten main sections in this book consist of the following topics: love and hate; truth and lies; arrogance and humility; friends and enemies; belief and disbelief; patience and impatience; deserved and undeserved; good and evil; fidelity and treachery; life and death.

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 a way to "make His peace your peace." 


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.
