MOMENTS WITH THE SAVIOR- Book Review
This is the type of book that I love to have on my nightstand for bedtime devotions or early morning devotions. It leaves you feeling refreshed at the end of the day or charged to take on the day.
This book is a devotional. These devotions are based on the life of Jesus, as depicted in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Ken Gire starts his devotional with an Introduction. Each one begins with a Bible story quoted directly from Scripture. He follows up each story with his meditations, basing them on the story just shared. A prayer follows each story and meditation. This book's structure is simple but appealing. It includes a blue ribbon that the reader can use as a bookmark. The author, Ken Gire, is the bestselling author of over twenty books.
Ken Gire writes so clearly and powerfully that at times I felt like I could smell and taste what was happening in Christ's life. Gire hooked my heart and my mind and my soul and left me closer to JESUS than ever before. This book has had a great impact on the way I view scripture and meditate on the depth of God's Word
