Life Application Study Bible Devotional
Although I cannot say I've ever read a "bad" devotional book, there are a precious few that I would strongly recommend. Most of them seem to put the emphasis on the applications or illustrations with little emphasis on God's Word itself. This emphasis, while interesting to read, leaves you with very little to "chew on" as you go throughout your day. This devotional sets out from the very beginning to put the emphasis on the Scriptures, and that is what makes it stand out from the rest. There are 52 weeks of readings, taken from the key events in Jesus' life described in the Gospels. Each week has an introduction, then 6 days of readings, including thought-provoking questions that give you something to consider all day long. I would strongly recommend this devotional to anyone who wanted to spend a year learning more about the life of Jesus and applying His Wisdom to his or her own life.
