Okay, I've got another book review for you today. This one is for a book called A Deeper Kind of Calm by Linda Dillow.
Also, I apologize for the abundance of book reviews lately and the lack of other blog posts. I'm working on some great ideas for a new blog series entitled The Worth of a Soul and I am really excited about it! So hang in there with me and I'll have some fresh material coming your way shortly! Now on to the book review.
A Deeper Kind of Calm by Linda Dillow is a four-week women's devotional based on Psalms 77, 46, 63 and 84. Linda goes through each of these Psalms and discovers what carried the psalmists through their "valleys of weeping" and how God can use the emotional/spiritual/physical valleys of your own life for your good.
I am generally not a fan of women's devotionals as I find they seem to lack much spiritual depth or weight. This was one of the somewhat better ones that I have read, but I would still classify it as "Christianity Lite". I think this book might be well-suited for newer Christians.
I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commision's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
P.S. The book reviews that are posted on this blog are ones that I am required to write in return for receiving the books free of charge from the publishers. However, these are not the only books I have been reading. Here are two others that I've read recently and would highly recommend:
- Too Small to Ignore by Dr. Wess Stafford, President and CEO of Compassion International
- Terrify No More by Gary Haugen, President of International Justice Mission (I've only just started reading this one, but I'm sure it will be great)
- I also love the magazine Mission Frontiers. You can subscribe at their website www.MissionFrontiers.com
