Devotions for a Deeper Life

Like so many other Christians out there, I have immensely enjoyed reading My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. It's a book I come back to every few years to enjoy.

Having read a few of his other works and essays, I knew that I would likely enjoy Devotions for a Deeper Life.

This devotional book is a compilation of exerts from a few of his lesser known essays. He might have lived and wrote a long time ago, but I always find his writing applicable and enduring.

The devotions are pretty short, shorter than My Utmost. They don't need to be long to be deep, and I found these really thought provoking. I did notice that they felt a little choppy and didn't feel very cohesive in theme or part of the Bible they came from. They were taken from different essays and put into one book, and it felt that way a bit. Sometimes they would follow the same train of thought for two or three days, but mostly the content jumped around. I didn't find that too bothersome and still have really enjoyed reading through this.

The book itself is smaller and perfect to keep on a bedside table or tucked in wherever you keep your Bible. It has a very sturdy cover and is just all together nice to look at. If you or a loved one enjoys the works of Oswald Chambers, this book is for you!

I received a copy of this book from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
