Book Review: Jesus a 365 Day Devotional
Jesus isn’t just found in the New Testament of the Bible—mentions, whispers, and echoes of Him can be found throughout the Bible. There are hundreds of clues and promises about Jesus in the Old Testament, which are fulfilled in the New Testament. Jesus: A 365-Day Devotional helps 8-12 year olds understand these revealing verses about Jesus from the beginning of the Bible to the end. Each devotional includes a Scripture, an explanation, and a prayer for reflection to help children discover that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. Jesus is a promised fulfilled for all of us. God promised he would send a deliverer, and He did. Jesus is ready and waiting for you.
Each devotional in this book is one page and very easy to read and understand. I have been reading one page each night with my two kids aged 5 and 9 years old. My nine year old is able to read it independently as well and comprehend it all.
There are a couple things in regard to the design with the book that I disliked. First the pages have dark and light blue on it with blue writing. It is a smaller font and blue on blue is challenging to read when my eyes are tired in the evening. The other thing is still with the pages, they are very dry and rough type pages. Very minimal things but wanted to note them.
Overall the content in this book is great for kids and adults alike. There is always scripture at the top, a story in the middle, and lastly a quick sentence prayer to end it.
Thank you Zondervan for sending me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.
