A Year with God-book review

A Year with God is a devotional walking you through the Old Testament scriptures.  It first features a passage from scripture and follows with a short and simple writing about the passage and what we can learn from it. I like the flow of the book and the insight offered on each page.  Different Bible translations are used, but the devotional is focused on the context of the passage, not the exact wording so it works. The book is arranged by topics such as; Hope and fear, love and hate, perseverance and quitting.

I think this would be a good devotional for one who is just beginning to read the Bible  & is not looking for deep theological concepts.  A Year with God is straight forward, not fluffing up the scripture or tickling ears, remaining simple and easy to understand.
