Book Review



Have you ever read the last page of your book and wished there were more pages to be turned? Me too! That's how I was with "Voices of the Faithful Vol 2."

This 366 daily devotional shares about more than over 300 Missionaries who serve all around the world and the people to whom they are allowed the privelege of serving. Some share the joys of watching people come to know and accept Christ after generations before them have planted seeds or served, but now these are the ones to lead them in that prayer that all believers long to do with Gods children/people. The Salvation Prayer. You will find heartbreak as well, reading how many serve day in and day out, and yet these people turn back to the ways of their country or nations governmental rules because of fear. One of my favorite months of devotionals was on "divine appointments" knowing that God places you right where He wants you to be and allows you to accomplish His specific will for that specific moment IF we will listen and obey to what He is asking us to do and not allow any obstacles to keep us from fulfilling that Divine task.

Anyone looking for a devotional this is a must. Anyone who has a heart for Missionaries this book is an absolute must. Anyone who needs a spark to encourage or challenge you in your walk, add this to your collection! Anyone think you aren't good enough to do those things God is asking you then read this book. You will find everyday people who struggle with their own flesh, fear, pride, etc just like you and me yet they surrender and find that serving doesn't have any qualifications other than a willing and humble heart. God did amazing work through 12 other men who weren't qualified in their minds either but we all know what HE did through them don't we!

There is one thing I would like to share. Beth Moore doesn't play the role in this 2nd volume that she did in the first. Kim Davis has taken her place and does a fantastic job. She was in the first volume as well but it is in this volume that we get to see more of Kim.

I am not a great reader...it takes me so long to read a book, I am trying to get better at this though... but this one Brooke sounds like something I could totally get into! I really feel like is headed toward being a missionary somewhere far away!

I had a divine appointment with a young mom this week at church. I was so clueless God had it in the works...but rejoiced after the fact knowing it was from God!!
Thanks for sharing this book review! Can you get it at Mardels?
Hope you are feeling better today. I am praying for you!

Loren,

I don't know how I missed this as part of the review. It sounds great that you walked away from reading it wanting even more! What a great way to encourage and motivate on a daily basis.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful devotional. I have several, but always looking for another, and I adore Beth Moore and Kim Davis. I also often give the gift of a devotional to friends for birthdays, etc., so this is perfect timing...I can get a head start on my shopping.

God bless,
Mary

You write good reviews. I have three devotional books that I read from every day. If I was looking for one, I would choose this one. Keep reading and reviewing. You do a good job.
