Back cover blurb:
In forty devotional tales, Where God Finds You breathes new life into ancient Bible characters. Live with and learn about more than forty Bible men and women, including the wife of Pontius Pilate, Esther, John the Baptist, Delilah, Lazarus, and Mary Magdalene.
Through reflection on Scripture and prayer, you’ll discover a place in each of these lives of vulnerability, tenderness, truth, and love—a place where you can find God . . . and where God finds you.
Where God Finds You is unique among women’s devotional books in that it brings dozens of men and women of the Bible to life through dramatic short stories, connects biblical truths to today’s culture, and offers readers an opportunity to reflect on what they’ve learned. Each devotion features:
• A dramatic retelling of Scripture that allows the reader to crawl into the pages of the Bible.
• The Story from God’s Word: a quote or paraphrase of the applicable Bible passage in a reader-friendly version.
• The Story—From Then to Now: a personal reflection from the author to help link the passage to life today.
• The Story—Questions to Think About: prompts for personal reflection or group discussion that lead to practical application.
Narelle: I really enjoyed meditating and reflecting on the devotions in Where God Finds You. The forty devotions are based on Biblical people from the Old and New Testament. Some of the Biblical characters are well known, including Peter, Job, Elijah, Joseph (son of Jacob), and Mary (mother of Jesus). Others are less well known including Hosea, Hagar, Tabitha (aka Dorcas) and Manoah (father of Samson).
The retelling of the Biblical stories in first person provides a deeper understanding of the character’s unique situation and experiences. The narrative Biblical text is included followed by the author’s insightful thoughts on the Bible story. The questions at the end of each devotion are relevant and thought-provoking. I highly recommend this book to those looking for a challenging and inspiring devotional that could also be used as a Bible study.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author.
