My first thought when I received this book was that it’d be a great gift for Chris, a colleague at work. [Nothing better than a gift that costs nothing :)]
But first, the review. So I read it at record speed, noting the following:
From the title to the colors to the content, the book is touted as a book for guys. But a lot of the content could be relevant for women too. While I get the rationale behind a devotional just for men, especially in a book culture where there are a lot more books specifically for women than there are for men, I’m not a fan of segregating daily devotional material by gender. Just my very subjective preference :)
That being said, if you’re a trivia buff looking for great stories with details about people and events, this book is perfect for you.
The title is almost like God pleading, “Please, just give me one minute of your day.” How could anyone say no to that! This book is a great baby step for a man—or a woman— wanting to invest in their spiritual health.
Having made these observations for my review, I presented the book to Chris. “Thanks,” he responded. “But does it come as a podcast?”
“There’s a Kindle version,” I offered.
“Hmm. I prefer listening to my devotions while driving to work.” [Note to publishers: While Chris is just one guy, he just might be representative of many men out there—Under a minute is great, but even better is being spoon fed an audible version ;) *sigh* MEN!]
Check out other great books from Tyndale House Publishers. And for the record, I received this book for free from Tyndale Blog Network for reviewing it on my blog.
