Jesus Lives by Sarah Young

Jesus Lives by Sarah Young I recently took a look at a new devotional book, Jesus Lives by Sarah Young. This devotional is written as if Jesus is talking directly to you. The author includes Bible verses that support each devotional and they do fit right in with each theme. I even think she does a good job with her writing – it’s intimate, easy-to-read, and understandable. That said, it does make me a wee bit uncomfortable to have things written as if God is speaking. It’s not that I feel God can’t inspire modern-day text. I think that’s entirely possible. It just seems to me that the author interjects a bit more of her personal thoughts and beliefs than I would like. Some people will probably really enjoy this style of writing. It makes you feel as if you are being spoken directly to, which can make you think a lot about the topics. And having the inspiring verses right there are quite helpful. In fact, I noticed that the pieces of verses that are quoted in the devotional are in italics – which makes it easier to cross-reference what she’s referring to. I give this 3 out of 5 stars. A good read, but not exactly what I personally want for a devotional. I received a copy of this book as part of the Thomas Nelson book review bloggers program. You can get a copy at Amazon or from Thomas Nelson publishers.
