The author believes that the true nature of God can be found in Exodus 34:6-7;

 6 And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, 7 maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.” Exodus 34: 6-7 NLT

Great Devotional


THE CASE FOR CHRIST

Daily Moments of Truth

By Lee Strobel & Mark Mittelberg

The goal of Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg was to offer a different kind of devotional and to show the truth of the Gospel. The most important commandment according to Jesus is;
29 Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. 30 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. 31 The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” Mark 12:29-31 NIV
Most devotionals cover the areas of -- all their hearts and with all their souls, what the authors wanted to do was cover -- is loving God with all our minds and with all our strength. They start with a Bible verses and quote from other Christians and continue with a writing showing the truth to help understand the Gospel and ends each devotion with a section they call, MOMENT OF TRUTH. They have written 180 devotions and offer an excellent way for all to study the devotions through Bible studies and/or discussion groups.

I believe they have accomplished their goal and recommend this book for believers and non-believers alike for and easy to read and understand devotional. The book I had for this review was a hardcover copy and was very sturdy and would handle everyday use.
