Welcome to my 10 Day Book Tour. I love to read, and I am often given books to read for review. Over the last year, I determined that I didn’t want to turn my blog into a book review site. However, I can’t help that I LOVE books. I truly do. They add so much value to my life, because I learn from them and glean new perspectives from the authors who put their hearts to the page. So, I’ve decided that each quarter, I’m going to do a 10 Day Book Tour. What have I been reading, what do I honestly think about the book, and to whom I would recommend it. Each day, for ten days, you will get a peak into my bookshelf.
DAY NINE: 100 MOST ENCOURAGING VERSES OF THE BIBLE by Troy Schmidt
100 Most Encouraging Verses of the Bible was given to me by Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of reviewing. The thoughts and opinions in this piece are my own and not influenced by the publisher or author.
Sometimes, it is nice to have a little book of verses edited around a theme. One I have used for years is God’s Promises to Women. When I saw this book on the list for potential reviews, I really thought it was going to be the same thing. A compilation of Bible verses, categorized under headings, with the potential of being another “go-to” book for when a need a quick verse for a card or friend.
It was much more than that.
Not only does the book have a great list of 100 encouraging verses, but each verse is also accompanied by a passage that puts the verse into context or application for our life. This book could serve as a great daily devotional, added to your study routine. It’s a slim line book, which means it will fit in your tote or even the pocket of your bible cover. It’s a great gift item, but also a good resource for your personal library.
