Book review: Devo For the Rest of Us by Vince Antonucci

About the book:
You are loved by a limitless God!

Yet many of us don’t live our everyday lives in that reality. The “rest of us” subconsciously believe half-truths about God and ourselves, sabotaging our lives in subtle and not-so-subtle ways.

For the next forty days, spend time every day discovering what life can be like in light of God’s love for you.

Devo for the Rest of Us is designed to increase your knowledge of God and help you establish habits that will keep you connected and growing in your love for him for the rest of your life. If you’re new to faith or coming back to God after some time away, this book will be a perfect fit for your spiritual needs. If your faith is more established, this book will be a challenging refresher on what living for God means. It will deepen your love for God and your commitment to living the life he has for you.

With these devos, you will start your days refreshed and renewed, revived and rejuvenated.

My review:
This was a devotional that I looked forward to picking up each morning. It is written in a relaxed, conversational way, with plenty of stories and examples to help the reader get the point. Yet, in spite of the humor found in most days' devotionals, the writer did not shy away from the truth. It was theologically sound, and basic, yet challenging. After reading the discussion of the day, there were passages to be read from the Bible, and then clarification questions and challenges based on the Scripture. As the description notes, this is good for a new Christian, and a solid review of the basics for long-time believers.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.
