Book Review: One God, One Plan, One Life

One God, One Plan, One Life: A 365 Devotional, by Max Lucado is a non-fiction devotional book that's geared towards teenagers.

According to page two, "Your life is so confusing.  There's so much to figure out....  There is One who has the answers you seek, who knows your future.  One God.  One plan.  One life.  Love him, and everything else will fall into place."
This devotional book has been adapted for teens by James Lund and features material from Max Lucado's books.  According to page 383, "Devotional material has been excerpted and revised from the following books written by Max Lucado."  This books include Grace for the Moment, Volume 1; Grace for the Moment, Volume 2; Live Loved; Max on Life; Wild Grace; and You'll Get Through This.

This book has twelve sections, one for each month, with a prominent scripture verse featured at the beginning of each month.  For every day, there's a one page devotional with the month and day at the top (example: February 25).  Each devotional includes a scripture verse, devotional title, devotional text, and the One More Thought section to further ponder and pray. 

At the end of the book, there's a bonus section: Reading the Bible.  According to page 386, "30 Days with Jesus walks you through the life of Jesus while he was here on earth.  90 Days Through the Bible gives you all the major happenings of the Old and New Testaments, beginning with the Creation in Genesis and going all the way through to Revelation."

One God, One Plan, One Life is geared towards teenagers, yet may be adaptable for junior high students through college age young adults.  It's a great way to encourage teens in an enjoyable, yet challenging way, to incorporate a daily devotional into their everyday lives.

Note: I received this book from Book Look Bloggers, 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.
