Voices of the Faithful

Voices of the Faithful: Inspiring Stories of Courage from Christians Serving Around World, Volume 2  -     
        By: Beth Moore, Kim Davis
    
Voices of the Faithful, Book 2, is a one year devotional book of "inspiring stories of courage from Christians serving around the world."  The stories and monthly introductions were compiled by Kim P. Davis and the series creator is Beth Moore.   Every day has a Scripture verse (interestingly enough, from a mix of translations), a short story and a scripted prayer.  The months have a theme which all of the stories center on.  For example, the theme for January is “Prayer, The Priority.” 

Since this book was intended to be read on a daily basis over the period of a year, I chose to read several sections throughout the book for this review.  The chapter introductions that were written by Kim Davis were well written and thought provoking.   They were longer than the daily readings and more in depth.  The daily readings were, well, short.  Just as you were getting into the story, it would end.  I also think that they missed a golden opportunity to have a really clear gospel message.  There is a page buried way in the back that tries to accomplish this but really misses the mark.  

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com  book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
