#174: Daily Guideposts 2011 - Andrew Attaway


America's favorite devotional, now in its 35th year with more than 20 million copies sold, Daily Guideposts is a trusted companion, helping readers to live and grow their faith every day. Every year since 1977, Guideposts has published Daily Guideposts, a devotional guide containing short inspirational pieces to be read each day of the year. They are designed to bring readers closer to God and their faith by helping them to live fuller, richer lives. Each piece offers a personal perspective on faith, love, inspiration, and understanding. With this year's theme of 'Growing in Love,' Daily Guideposts is tapping into a subject that is a key to spiritual growth. Each Daily Guideposts devotional includes: a short Scripture verse for reflection; a true, first-person anecdote that shares the ways God speaks through ordinary life events; a brief prayer to put the day's message to work in each reader's life. By taking a few minutes each day for reflection, Daily Guideposts readers will become more aware of the spiritual richness in their lives.

My Opinion:
This Christian devotional was a page a day, with a passage from the bible, then a story from someone that relates to the teaching in the passage, then finished off with a quote. I had a nice experience with this devotional, but don't feel I learned anything from it. It was just another book to add to my daily morning reading routine, where I read my bible, the Qu'ran and whatever devotionals I have for that year. While I appreciated all the content, it is just not one I would rush out to buy. Most people who enjoy devotionals may feel differently and that's okay with me.


3/5


Recommend? Not this one, but try the current year for yourself.
