Book Review: The One Year Book of Encouragement

This devotional boasts seeds of wisdom from such great theologians as C.S. Lewis, John Wesley, Spurgeon, George MacDonald, A.W. Tozer, and Oswald Chambers to name a few. Still, I was wary of a book including "encouragement" in the title, a word that has come to be used to mean: words that make you feel good. This gem is not simply full of words that make you feel good, but each day's devotional takes amazing spiritual insights from these great Christian leaders and convicts with their words. Each devotional ends with a prayer and scripture to meditate on and memorize. I will be gleaning wisdom from this book for a long, long time.
I received this book from Tyndale Publishers to review.
