CLOSED: Getting Ready For The Holidays: A Year With God Book Review & Giveaway


A Year with God
Discover How the Words God Spoke Apply to Our Lives Today

“The best way to get to know people is to spend time listening to them. The same is true for your relationship with God. The best way to get to know Him is to pay attention to what He said throughout the Bible.” —R. P. Nettelhorst




Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hear God speak? Adam knew the sound. Moses and Abraham talked with God. But the concept is so strange to us. We hear people talk all the time. There are probably people talking around you as you read this. Are their words helpful to you? Can their words change your life?




A Year with God is a 365-day study on the words God spoke to His people in the Old Testament and how those words reveal His nature. “In reading what God actually said, we can discover what really matters to God,” Nettlehorst says. Each day’s reading focuses on scriptures where God is specifically quoted—in conversation with someone, revealed in a dream, or presented by an angelic proclamation. From topics like hope, faith, and joy to fear, doubt, and sadness, A Year with God takes the very words of God and applies them to life’s daily challenges.




Too many times the impact and grandness of the actual words God spoke, as recorded in the Bible, are lost in the telling of the story. In A Year with God the primary focus is to allow the scriptures that contain God's dialogue and the revelations of himself to uniquely speak to the reader. The author follows each reading with insights and applications to help explain the context and nuances of the text. The unique titling of each meditation and the nontraditional themes and organization help bring God to our daily lives. Topics include:




Hope and Fear
Love and Hate
Perseverance and Quitting
Faith and Doubt
Loyalty and Betrayal
Companionship and Isolation
Mercy and Judgment
Forgiveness and Anger
Joy and Sadness
Peace and Conflict


I like this book because it's simple but gets the whole point across. This book is great for someone who may just be learning the word of God or for a supplement to knowledge already gained. A perfect gift for anyone who may need a little encouragement or someone who enjoys studying the Bible.


One lucky person will receive a copy of A Year With God!
