a deep devotional
"Awakening Faith: Daily Devotions from the Early Church" by James Stuart Bell with Patrick J. Kelly is a day by day year long devotional compiled of writing and prayers from leaders of early Christianity. Each day has a scripture, prayer or message, and the author. Most of the authors I had not heard of. I have been Christian all my life, but am not anywhere near what you would call a scholar. Though the language has been updated, the messages are still told in historical fashion. The reading can get a little dry sometimes if you are not used to it. These stories go in pretty deep with their message. If you are looking for a light hearted quick read for daily devotion, this is not the book for you. If you want to go deep and to the root of the early church beliefs, than have at it. I received this book for free from www.bravereviews.com.
