Book Review: A Year With God by R. P. Nettelhorst


One of many people's resolutions this year is to grow spiritually. A great way to accomplish this is with a devotional. Today I am reviewing "A Year With God" by R. P. Nettlehorst. This devotional focuses on God's own words from the Bible. The author reasons that by reading His words will help us to get closer to Him just as listening to a friend helps us get closer to them. Sounds like good reasoning to me.

The book includes 365 daily readings divided into ten subjects that address both the positive and negative, such as "Hope and Fear" and "Faith and Doubt." The author included a large table of contents based on the subjects to help find individual readings easier. Each reading is one page in length and includes a section of scripture, the Bible version the scripture came from, and an explanation of the scripture. I love that these take no longer than a few minutes to read each day. With this type of reading, it is a great way to begin, end your day, or anytime that you can get a few minutes of reading in. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a way to grow more spiritually mature.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a copy of this book without charge from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
