Book Review: Jesus Calling

From the Back:

More than 20 million people have been touched by Jesus Calling®. Experience Sarah’s words in a new way, focused on the encouragement only Jesus provides. The Jesus Calling topical devotionals—releasing simultaneously—each feature 50 readings from Jesus Calling with relevant Scripture verses on the topics of comfort, peace, and encouragement.
Even the tiniest hill can feel like a mountain when you’re drained or discouraged. But that’s when your precious Savior reaches out His hand with compassion and draws you near. Jesus Calling 50 Devotions for Encouragement is written as if Jesus Himself is speaking hope and encouragement directly to your heart.
Readers around the world already love how Sarah’s words connect with them on a daily basis. Now the new Jesus Calling topical devotionals offer a way to focus even more deeply on the major felt needs in your life . . . and in the lives of your friends, family, church, school, and co-workers.
With a beautiful, vibrant cover and stunning four-color photography, this topical devotional is a natural addition to the Sarah Young brand—and the perfect way to pour into those you love.

My Reflections:
Sarah Young's newest devotional series "Jesus Calling 50 Devotions for Encouragement" is just what you may need to read today, be uplifted! 
This book is written as if Jesus is speaking directly to you, making readers feel engaged and loved.
It has taken me some time to get used to reading my beloved scripture this way. Honestly, I was not sure how I felt about it. However, I love the way Sarah has pulled uplifting and powerful scripture out to really speak to you in this personal fashion. 

The devotional itself though short in nature is perfect for a quick supplementary Bible study in addition to your regular Bible readings. It is beautifully executed with colourful pictures and well laid out Devotions. I so enjoyed the bold script and shiny, colourful pages, it really was a delight to the senses and soul. I also appreciated that the Bible references were listed at the bottom of the page so you could go and read the actual context for the devotion. 
All in all, this was such a treat to review, very uplifting and well done. I would highly recommend this for a gift, bible study supplement or just to have on hand for those days when you need a little encouragement! I can't wait to purchase the other two topical editions on Peace and another on comfort.
