A couple of months ago, Dianne Neal Matthews was interviewed on this blog about being a writer for the devotional compilation, Mornings with Jesus 2013. Today I am reviewing her latest 365-day devotional, Designed for Devotion.
Dianne Neal Matthews has written her fourth book of daily devotionals and what a compilation of Biblical knowledge. The book is subtitled, "A 365-day journey from Genesis to Revelation," and she has penned at least one devotional from each book of the Bible. If you have a hunger for God’s Word, want to grow in your walk with God or are new in your Christian faith, this book will give you a substantial amount of truth and inspiration each day during the coming year.
A sentence from the back cover sums it up: "There is no better way to know God more intimately than to immerse yourself in his Word and Designed for Devotion helps you do just that."
Each day Matthews takes a portion of Scripture, explains it and then relates it to our daily lives.
If you are looking for a 365-day devotional this is certainly one to consider.
Dianne Neal Matthews is a freelance writer and the author of four daily devotional books including The One Year Women of the Bible (Tyndale House) and Designed for Devotion: A 365-Day Journey from Genesis to Revelation (Baker Books).
