Book Review: Time With God For Fathers

Book Description
A Scripture-led devotion to encourage time between fathers and the Lord.
Time with God for Fathers contains ninety devotions that encourage fathers to spend time on their relationship with the Lord in prayer, thanksgiving, and praise. Devotions are topical and include: forgiveness, wisdom, comfort, guidance, and strength. A Quick Scripture Reference Guide is included to help fathers in their day-to-day walk with God and fatherhood. Subjects consist of "Father's Prayers", "God's Promises for Fathers", "God's Blessings for Fathers", "Responsibilities for Fathers", and "God's Dynamic Examples of Fathers".

I was interested in receiving and reviewing this book because I am a fan of small, daily devotional books to end my day with. This one was not bad, but not great either. Maybe it is because my standard for comparison is My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers, and that is probably not fair to any other writer of devotional material. But this was not bad, and a very easy read. It does not get too “meaty,” so it would probably do all right for a newer Christian. A few entries seemed “forced",” but others were very insightful. One really cool aspect of the book was the binding/packaging. It was a nice, small, hard cover, which makes it very durable for a book that I would read and keep on my nightstand. But the most unique, and maybe best feature, was the black elastic band that you see on the picture above, very much like a Moleskin. A really cool feature that I used as a book mark and wished more books would do so. All in all, a good, but not great, devotional book.
