Book Review ~ All to Jesus via @RobertJMorgan #Devotional


Back of the book:

Spend 365 Days—All Year—in the “Alls” of Scripture

You’d be surprised how often the word all appears in the Bible—thousands of times, actually. With each description of God’s all-encompassing promises and blessings, with each loving appeal for our full and total surrender, His reputation grows larger before our eyes.

We see again what He can do. We see again who we can be. Now, remind yourself of these life-changing truths every single day.

From the acclaimed author of Then Sings My Soul comes this choice daily sampling of God’s immeasurable power and His keen attention to detail. Truly, He is all you need—all year long.

Robert J. Morgan is a best-selling, Gold Medallion Award-winning author whose books include Then Sings My Soul, The Red Sea Rules, and The Children’s Daily Devotional Bible. He has also served as pastor of The Donelson Fellowship in Nashville, Tennessee, for three decades. Morgan and his wife have three daughters and ten grandchildren.

My thoughts:

One of the trends today is to pick one word and focus on it for the entire year. That is somewhat of the premise of this devotional. In the introduction Mr. Morgan tells us how reading 1 Peter 5:7 began his journey of studying the word all, in all of the scriptures. I know that most skip over introductions but in this case don’t, you will be doubly blessed by what he has to say.

The format is simple. Each day is numbered so you can literally start at any point in the year, be it January 1st or July 27th. There is a suggested scripture passage and then a highlighted verse that contains the word all. Following that there is a devotional that pertains to the subject of the highlighted verse.

Mr. Morgan has a very conversational style of writing that I think most will find enjoyable. It would make a nice reading companion at the beginning of your day or right before you lay your head down. I for one enjoy carrying a small Bible and devotional book in my car with me. Like most wives and mothers there are times that I get stranded waiting for a family member. This book was wonderful to read and ponder during those moments.
