"Our Daily Bread Devotional Bible" Book Review

Since it was first published in 1956, "Our Daily Bread" has been a daily devotional resource that has helped readers spend time each day in God's word. If you are a reader of this wonderful daily devotional, you will be thrilled to find out that the "Our Daily Bread Devotional Bible" contains 365 dated daily devotions structured in a way that starts in Genesis and takes you through the Bible.
For the purposes of this review, I focused on the book of 1 Corinthians. The book starts off with a great summary of what you will be reading in the book, including a sidebar with a list of important facts about the book and a book outline. As you move forward you find a dated page that also has a topic heading. It lists the scripture that you will be focusing on for that day and then a very thoughtful yet concise devotional that directly correlates with the scripture you have just read.
While reading through 1 Corinthians, I thoroughly enjoyed each devotional. The topics ranged from the gift of the Holy Spirit, to how to keep your marriage strong, and the importance of avoiding pride. I believe that they provide a neatly structured reading plan that gives you a direction for that day and will keep you coming back on a daily basis. I would recommend this Bible to anyone who is interested in a good daily devotional. Even if you have never been a consistent Bible reader, this is the perfect place for you to begin.
