abundant life review
I received "Abundant Life Day Book: 365 Blessing To Begin Your Day" by Nancy Guthrie for free from Tyndale House Publishers. This book is a devotional. Each day has a short bible verse followed by a message from "God", and ending with a prayer from you to God. This book is a little hard to follow at first. The first day I read I could not figure out who the "I " was in the daily blessing. Then it dawned on me that it was a letter from God. Which kind of threw me. Since actually it is a letter from Nany Guthrie, obviously, it made me feel a little weird reading what was supposedly words from God. Then she turns it around and writes the prayer from me to God. So then the "I" is me. So I didn't really like the way it was written. It was weird and too back and forth. I did like the messages. They are aimed to make one feel better about oneself. God probably would say those things to someone. I would say read it and after awhile the whole flip-flopping the "I"s wouldn't be so hard to follow. Some may not ever take to the letter from "God".
