This is my copy. I would not be without one. This is my second or third time through.
Wonderful, always fresh. My favorite devotional. ( )

This book is part of my collection that really focuses in on Biblical Commentary more than anything else (including some well known authors in the theological world). All of these books haven't been read cover to cover, but I've spent a lot of time with them and they've been helpful in guiding me through difficult passages (or if I desire to dig deeper). ( )

I used to really think this was a great book. There are some entries that I still think are great, however, I'm finding myself increasingly frustrated with Chambers being somewhat heavy-handed with works-based doctrine. Unnervingly, he seems heavily rooted in Christian-perfectionism at times, and I find that downright depressing. Worse, Chambers overuses ellipses in his daily scripture quotations to the point at which he frequently has more to say about a verse than what quoted sentence fragment actually supports - context is important, and it is lost in this form of exegesis.

One of my few favorite books - timeless, touching, totally true - little snippets of devotion which pull a heart into heavy worship. ( )
