This book is filled with 66 daily devotions, inviting the reader to sit at the table with Jesus. The purpose of this book is to help the reader grow closer to God. It’s very well organized with 11 sections. The first few sections are intitled: Jesus is God, Jesus is God and Fully Man, and Jesus is Our Glorious Savior. Within each section are 6 days of devotionals. I like the way the author writes each devotion, beginning with a Scripture passage. After this he writes a very thoughtful section which is followed by two questions. At the end he gives us a verse to memorize. The same memory verse is given for six days, so at the end of the week a new verse can be memorized.
I like this devotional book because the writing helps the reader to dive deeper into the Bible. The questions make the reader think and apply Scripture to their individual life. The 66 days of this devotional reading can be beneficial for learning theological truths as well as gaining a deeper relationship with Christ.
