Jesus, Day by Day - A Review

   Jesus, Day by Day, by Sharon Kaselonis, is a 365-day devotional which includes a one-year plan to read through the entire Bible. The daily devotions in this book are longer than many on the market today, having much more depth than a short paragraph or two can give.

    My favorite thing about this unique devotional is that, through the Old Testament readings, Jesus, Day by Day points to the presence of Jesus in the Old Testament, and then solidifies His promises in the New Testament. It teaches us to look for Jesus revealed not only in the words of the prophets, but in other places throughout the Old Testament Scripture. Each day through almost the end of September starts with a Scripture from the Old Testament, followed by a not-too-short devotional reading which lists several New Testament verses to back up the point of the day.
     I enjoyed how, once the calendar arrives at the New Testament readings, many of the daily Scriptures are a combination of the four Gospels. Reading them side-by-side is a great way to study the life of Jesus.

      I give this book 5-stars. It's a great devotional with a lot of depth. Jesus, Day by Day would make a great Christmas gift, as many readers are looking for a new devotional at the start of the new year. One could just read the daily devotion in the morning, and then read the full reading plan later in the day, or just use the book as a devotional and stick to your own Bible-reading plan. Either way, this book is a winner.

    The publishing date for Jesus, Day by Day is September 17, with pre-order available now.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from
WaterBrook & Multnomah via NetGalley.
