Book Review: God's Love Letters To You

God's Love Letters to You: A 40-Day Devotional Experience
God's Love Letters to You
By Dr Larry Crabb
Thomas Nelson, 2011
English, 144 pgs


Forty devotional messages taken from the eternal story of God's Love, the Bible, as revealed in the conversational experience of 66 Love Letters.
Experience a unique conversation with God through a daily devotional reading based on twenty Old Testament and twenty New Testament books of the Bible. Written to help the reader listen to what God is saying in His Word, God's Love Letters to You offers a life-changing encounter with God through the story He is telling. Author Larry Crabb brings the big picture of God's story into clearer focus, helping readers catch an enticing glimpse of how each of these forty books of the Bible advances the story. The goal? To lose our story in His.
Each day's devotional includes:
  • selected Scripture reading
  • short devotional message
  • reflection questions
  • closing prayer
I love the way this book is written and arranged. The lesson each day is short, but deep. Each lesson also has a few questions to help you think about what the lesson is telling you and a prayer to match the lesson.

The only thing that would have made this perfect would have been more space to journal  thoughts as you read each lesson. Some have plenty of room and some have none. A more consistent journaling space wouldn't have added that many pages and would have been nice.

This is something that can be done in about 10 minutes a day, just right for someone who is starting out with a quiet time or for someone who truly doesn't have a lot of time each day.

I received a copy of the book from BookSneeze for the purpose of a review. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
