Let the Journey Begin Finding God's Best for Your Life
By Max LucadoIf I was going to judge a book by its cover, I would not hesitate to pull this book from the shelf. Its serene night time moonlit cover and fireflies are nostalgic and beautiful. The cover itself looks like a piece of art, something I would even download as a background wallpaper on my computer. Beyond the cover, this short little devotional book would make a great gift for any high school graduate - or any college graduate. This would make a great gift for anyone who has just been accepted into a college, technical school or even for someone who may need a little insight or direction when facing a change such as a move to a new home or school. This book contains excerpts and selections from Lucado's
Nevertheless, whenever excerpts are taken from his books to form a new compendium, I find that it looses some of the impact. The devotionals are a little watered down, and do not necessarily address the grief, hardships and trials his books normally address. For anyone looking for lighthearted inspiration, or inspiration this book makes a good choice. No matter if you are a young adult, or a mom embarking on a new career change, this applies to any change. Maybe for those in dire need facing life and death issues, such as those facing a terminal illness, divorce or loss of job- they may need something more spiritually solid in embarking on their journey. As a blogger for Booklook, I received a copy of this book published by Thomas Nelson publishers for the purpose of writing this review.
