Couldn't make it through the whole devotional, mainly because of the request to post specific things to social media sites. While I'm not against showing my faith online, I resented the addition of a hashtag to promote the devotional. ( )

An okay collection of devotionals. Not really much here to challenge or grow the faith of the reader, though. There are much better devotionals that you would be better served using on a regular basis (anything by Spurgeon for a start). ( )

A very short but powerful devotional book. 30 Words, just one word a day that will make you think, inspire you, comfort you and bring you closer to God and His word.
I will keep this book book near me for quick reference for daily use. It's definitions and Bible passages are a good way to start the day, end the day, or to read when you need some comfort or inspiration. It would also make a nice gift for someone you love. ( )

This word study is set up for 1 word a day for the month. While I found it very short I can see where you can start a more in depth study of each work on your own. I did not care for the social media suggestions at the end of each study so I choose to ignore them. ( )

Bite-sized daily devotionals have long been a staple of Christian fare so Wilson’s book joins a crowded table. Some such works are tied to particular seasons (Advent and Lent being popular) but this is in the group that can be started at any time and will run about a month. As the title indicates, the author has picked thirty words (such as faith, hope and love), and addresses each one with a few paragraphs of reflection. Each meditation includes anchors in the Bible, along with a related verse of the day and a short challenge.

It was the challenges I liked least; many of them amounted to “tweet this aphorism and include a hashtag linked to the book”. People are using the #30WordsBook tag but I am not sure whether it is more about building faith or sales. Apart from that, I think it does its job well but not in such an outstanding way that it rises as a headline example. A devotional with the rest of them rather than, as the subtitle claims, a devotional for the rest of us. ( )
