I'd love to hear from readers about devotional books they have read and what they liked or disliked about them? Which ones have helped you grow in your faith the most? Do you ever reread a devotional book?
I'll answer by saying I have enjoyed reading throughout 2022 Spurgeon's Morning and Evening devotionals. I'm a huge Spurgeon fan. The habit of reading both in the morning and evening is helpful for me to stay grounded in God's Word. Some of his 1800s English is challenging, but that's to be expected. If I reread them, I'll buy a modern language edition.
I also started reading Ralph Tilley's Voices of the Early Church Fathers upon that book's 2022 release. It's a collection of 365 daily readings from the early centuries of the Christian faith. Ralph is a friend and fellow author and was my primary reviewer for Next Step Devotions. I felt like I had a gap in knowledge of the writings of early church fathers, so these daily readings are a joy for me to read each morning. They remind me that the faith and issues surrounding it are far older than my modern experience.
Of course, having just released Next Step Devotions, I plan to use it throughout 2023 as a reader. That should be interesting and help me as I consider future editions.
