Voices of the Faithful - Book 2

Print

Voices of the Faithful - Book 2, Inspiring stories of courage from Christians serving around the world published by Thomas Nelson and compiled by Kim P Davis.
This is not your ordinary book of daily devotions.  Yes, each day begins with Scripture and ends with a prayer, but then the similarities end.  Voices of the Faithful takes you into the lives of missionaries serving around the world.  Each one gives a glimpse into the world where they minister. “You’ll witness moments of looming danger and crushing heartaches, moments of shining hope and pure miracle.”
One missionary’s wife serving in an African village tells of her day of constant interruptions including loss of electricity and a torrential downpour while trying to homeschool her children.  She reminds us that our “idea of ministry may not match God’s definition.  His goal for me is to bring Him glory in the little things and not just in the big things.  Being reminded of this goal has changed my outlook on the interruptions of each day.  Each interruption is an opportunity to serve the Lord by loving the people God brings my way.”  Her outlook and insight on God’s plan helps me to see “interruptions” as a chance to serve and love others.
Each month focuses on a different aspect of the Christian walk: Prayer, the Priority; Divine Appointments; and Making Him Known.
I would recommend this book for anyone who wishes to grow in their faith and pray for different people groups around the world.
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

A complimentary copy of this book was provided to me by Thomas Nelson as part of their Book Sneeze Blogging for Books Program. I was not obligated to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are strictly my own.

  6. Sounds really good. Do you think middleschoolers would find it interesting? I'd love to find a devotional to do with my kids.

  7. 5ennie - Each day has only 1 page with Scripture and a prayer at the end. It would really open up discussions of life throughout the world. I think it would be great. Having 3 high school home schooler, they don't always appreciate being read to! You can see inside the book at Christian Book.

    Hope this helps. ~ Ellen

  8. Thanks so much, Ellen! I will check your link and might get that for us. We are using Monarch for homeschooling, and my students are almost done with the Bible lessons. I think mine would all enjoy a devotional time together, even if mom reads to them :)

  9. Just wanted to let you know I ordered this book and also the first one. Haven't started yet, but two kids are still working on their Monarch Bible lessons. Once they are done, we plan to start Voices of the Faithful. Thank you so much for your tip!
