I have written reviews of devotionals in the past – and one of my frequent criticisms is that they often take one or two verses, often out of context, and write a lengthy, often fluffy devotional rather than actually wrestling with the message and story of scripture. The Story Devotional, while sharing some of those features, provides a notable exception. It is intended to be used in conjunction with The Story Bible, which leads readers through the entire story of scripture. This devotional, side by side with a solid reading plan with The Story Bible, provides biblical insight along with devotional insight – which in my opinion, is a winning combination. The devotions are thoughtful and meaningful – and this one earns my recommendation.
I received this as an ARC.
