Dad's Devotional Bible {Review}

I have been on the hunt for a good devotional bible for my husband for some time now. I finally came across this NIV Dad's Devotional Bible (with notes by Robert Wolgemuth) on the BookLook Bloggers website for review. I quickly grabbed it up and my husband has been enjoying it ever since. I am so glad that I chose this bible for my husband.

About the Author:
  • Robert Wolgemuth graduated from Taylor University (Biblical Literature) and received an honorary doctorate (LhD) from the same university in 2005. He is the author or coauthor of over twenty books, including Men of the Bible, The Most Important Year in a Man’s/Woman’s Life, and the notes to the Dad’s Bible. See website: http://robertwolgemuth.com
About the Book:
  • A trusted source of wisdom to help men learn how to be the type of fathers God wants them to be, this Bible provides a full year of weekday devotions along with other helpful study features.
    Filled with challenging and helpful information, the NIV Dad's Devotional Bible helps dads become fathers who honor God, live faithfully, and love their families-men whose lives will build priceless family legacies for generations to come.
    With 260 down-to-earth devotions, one for every day of the work week, as well as quick book introductions and seven insightful "Building Your Children" articles, author Robert Wolgemuth will lead readers through the blueprint of godly fatherhood. And with a helpful "Questions Kids Ask" index in the back, the hardcover NIV Dad's Devotional Bible will equip dads with the tools they need to be great fathers.
My husband is such a great father to our three boys. They are 2, 5, and 6. Believe me, we need all the help we can get. We tend to lean toward God's word for our parenting advice. The bible gives us everything we need to know about parenting. God has fully equipped us to be good parents and has commanded us to raise Godly children who grow up to serve Him.

I loved that this bible has devotions all throughout. They coincide with the bible verses that it is near in the bible. The devotions include a passage for the day, verse for the day, and a short story/devotion. The devotions can be read in about 5 minutes each day and the verses take about 5 minutes as well. So, for 10 minutes each day you can spend time with God and read His word.

I recommend this bible to all dad's or dad's-to-be or, even, grand-dad's. Leaning on God's word for your daily dose of advise and biblical point-of-view is the most important thing you can ever do. Taking time to sit quietly with God and soak in His presence is such a wonderful feeling. I pray that this bible will encourage and help someone in their walk with the Lord.

This book was given to me by BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed here are solely my own.
