I like the straightforward and easy to understand setup of this devotional. Each month has a theme and each daily devotion is dated. Each devotional page begins with the presentation of a Bible verse, followed by a couple of short paragraphs of discussion about the verse. Josh McDowell then wraps it all up in a “Truth is” statement, followed by a short prayer.
I absolutely loved the “Truth is” statements. They hit the mark and got straight to the fact of the matter. These truths, and the way they are presented at the end of the devotion, will be what really sticks with the teen as they go through the day or as they are falling asleep at night.
The devotions should not take very long for a teen to add to their busy lives and cover a wide range of topics. Hopefully the reader will also be doing some deeper Bible reading, too, but I definitely recommend this clear and easy to understand guide.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
