Unto the Hills: A Daily Devotional Review

 
I chose to review this book because a daily devotional is a great tool for Bible reading through out the year. I've tried too many times to just sit down and read the Bible itself, and like many others I am sure, I got frustrated and gave up. With this daily devotional I won't get overwhelmed reading more than my mind can handle.  Each day begins titled with what I like to call "the topic of the day" followed by a passage from the Bible on this topic. Then you are given a short story or reference in life today about this topic followed by how it relates to our God. Finally it is ended with a simple prayer. WOW is all I have to say, to be able to do all this in one simple page a day is just awesome! Over the years I have read many of Billy Graham's writings so I know what a talented author he is. I am really excited to have this book to begin the New Year with.


 Book Description
The classic 365-day devotional from Billy Graham, now back in print.
No matter your place in life, this classic collection of devotional readings is designed to bring you daily to that special place of renewal— to help you pause and gaze "unto the hills" for help and inspiration.
Each of the 365 daily readings in this inspiring collection offers a carefully chosen passage of scripture, a brief, thoughtful message from Dr. Graham, and a heartfelt prayer composed especially for this book. Distilled from a lifetime of study and ministry, these devotionals supply daily food for thought about living fruitfully and joyfully in an often fretful world.
Simple, direct, encouraging yet challenging, this book offers itself as a heartening companion for your daily walk in the valley. This collection is a gentle but constant reminder that we can find help for all our needs as long as we remember to look up . . . unto the hills but especially unto the Lord.

    My dad would have loved this book. He watched Billy Graham all the time on tv and read books. I think my sister would love it also. She loves to read her devotionals before going to work daily.
