A Year with God: Daily Readings and Reflections on God’s Own Words


There’s nothing like being in the Word. In his devotional, R.P. Nettelhorst invites readers to reflect on Old Testament Scripture. I appreciate how A Year with God isn’t dated so I felt like I could pick it up at any point. Because the book is arranged by topics, such as loyalty and betrayal and companionship and isolation, I felt an added convenience to dive in at the reflection of my choosing. The use of different Bible translations added to my understanding of certain Scriptures. I’ve read numerous devotions and I found this one, with its 365 responses to the Word, educational and probing of my faith.

I’d recommend it to someone who desires to dig deeper in the Old Testament, someone who appreciates living in a way that is open to conviction, instruction and encouragement (in the true meaning of the word).
