Voices of the Faithful
Well, the New Year has started...time for making resolutions that usually last a week or two...or not. So if your resolution has anything to do with spending some time reading, here is a worthwhile pick. Voices of the Faithful is a different kind of devotional book, in that it is a compilation of various writers, all international missionaries, meant to spur you on in your own walk of faith. The author listed in big print on the cover is Beth Moore, and she does add so much with her introductions to the topic for each month's collections, including God's Character, God's Word, Persecution and Compassion. However, she is quick to draw the focus to the authors of each daily entry, as her "friends who put their lives on the line for God". Their stories are inspiring and so interesting to read, as they take me out of my narrow focus on my tiny little corner of the world. What a great way to start the day and the new year!
