Where God Finds You Book Review & Giveaway!

“Have you ever longed to crawl into the pages of the Bible?  To walk on the Judean hills or feel the spray of the Red Sea?  To know what it’s like to confront a king or pour perfume on a Savior’s feet?

“In forty devotional tales, Where God Finds You breathes new life into ancient Bible characters.  Through reflection on Scripture and prayer, you’ll discover a place in each of these lives of vulnerability, tenderness, truth and love – a place where you can find God….and where God finds you.”

Where God Finds You: 40 Devotions Bringing Bible Characters To Life is just that.  Anita Higman, award-winning author, takes us back in time.  

It is unique among women’s devotional books in that it brings dozens of men and women of the Bible to life through dramatic short stories, connects biblical truths to today’s culture, and offers readers an opportunity to reflect on what they’ve learned.  Each devotion features:

A dramatic retelling of Scripture that allows the reader to crawl into the pages of the Bible.


The Story from God's Word: a quote or paraphrase of the applicable Bible passage in a reader-friendly version.


The Story—From Then to Now: a personal reflection from the author to help link the passage to life today.


The Story—Questions to Think About: prompts for personal reflection or group discussion that lead to practical application. 


My Thoughts:  These devotions are much different from any others I have read.  They really take the reader on a journey back in time to the place where the events happened.  I enjoyed reading the author's story along side of the actual Bible passages.

Find Out More:  You purchase Where God Finds You: 40 Devotions Bringing Bible Characters to Life on Amazon for just $10.33.  You can also find out more about Anita at her website, www.anitahigman.com

I would like the book because I struggle with my daily reading at times because some of it is just hard to read and seems to drag on. I enjoy books that are a retelling of bible stories and find them much easier to follow, but I also find myself referencing what I read when I do.

Kristie

I would like this book because I don't have a devotional and this seems perfect. There are so many choices but this one seems wonderful. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

Marianne Sandling

I would love to win.
Why? Because I did not grow up churched. When I got married earlier in the year, I made a committment to learn about God, and I've grown to love him so. I've been working on collecting books to read, and this one sounds like it's just what I need right now. I learn 'differently' than others, so some books don't gel with me. I can already tell that this is one that I can learn from successfully.
Thanks for a great giveaway!
