Best Devotion Book

In my opinion this is one of the best devotional books. For myself, and so many others I’ve spoke with regarding this book, we all feel like each day is just speaking straight to us even though we’re all going through different things in life. It’s so relatable each and every day. Also I love that each page is a day in this book. Such an amazing purchase! If you’re debating, purchase it, you won’t regret it.

Jesus Calling will speak to your soul

I started reading this devotional from a co worker who passed it on to me. I loved it so much. I bought several copies, one for myself and several to pass out. I returned my co workers book so she could share it with another. Day by day God speaks to me and guides me with different insights into His loving presence. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a devotional that speaks to your 💓.

Awesome Devotional Book

My Pastor’s recommendation!! I have since purchased for some as a gift as well as suggested others purchased it! I Praise God, Pray and read my book to get my day started. It’s as it it was written directly for me😍 my Pastor reads it everyday Year after year!

Great Book

I have had this book for years and have read it every day.... although I know these are not the words of Jesus, except the quotations, I picture Him saying them. Sara has done a great job putting this book together.

Unsettling Title

While I believe that Ms. Young walks with God, it is uncomfortable that she has phrased her interpretations of God's words as though she is speaking for him. That being said, I also believe that this book has had a positive influence on many people. I would suggest that readers would do well to remember that they are reading one person's interpretation of what God feels---and that Ms. Young is merely serving as guide. Ultimately, each reader might do well to digest Ms. Young's INTERPRETATIONS and remember that they are being inspired by her inspiration. Read the referenced bible quotes, "dig deeper" and search within yourself for your own connection to the Holy Spirit. I prefer the Daily Guideposts devotional because the writers realize that they are writing from a human standpoint. However, I applaud the fact that many, many people have been drawn closer to God because of her book. The book may have been better titled "Jesus Called" and the cover could perhaps have shown a hand reaching out to the silhouette of Ms. Young--with Ms. Young's hand extended in offering to the reader. Had the book represented the thoughts as coming from the author, I would have awarded five stars

10 Serious Problems with Jesus Calling November 11, 2015 from Challies.com blog Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling is a phenomenon that shows no signs of slowing down. According to publisher Thomas Nelson, it “continues to grow in units sold each year since it was released [and] has surpassed 15 million copies sold.” Nelson is involved in an expansive new marketing campaign that involves a new web site and daily radio devotionals. ECPA reports that “Thomas Nelson began its partnership with the Salem Media group to provide 60-second daily messages on Eric Metaxas’ show, which is carried on more than 100 stations nationwide and worldwide on SiriusXM Radio. The Jesus Calling radio devotional reaches more than 500,000 people each day through these segments.” With 15 million copies sold, it has marched its way into rare company. Yet it is a deeply troubling book. I am going to point out 10 serious problems with Jesus Calling in the hope that you will consider and heed these warnings. 1. She speaks for God. Far and away the most troubling aspect of the book is its very premise—that Sarah Young hears from Jesus and then dutifully brings his messages to her readers. Jesus Calling makes the boldest, gutsiest, and, to my mind, most arrogant claim of any book ever to be considered Christian. The publisher describes the book in this way: “After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior’s voice and begin listening for what He was saying. So with pen in hand, she embarked on a journey that forever changed her—and many others around the world. In these powerful pages are the words and Scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. Words of reassurance, comfort, and hope. Words that have made her increasingly aware of His presence and allowed her to enjoy His peace (italics mine).” There is no way to avoid her claim that she is communicating divine revelation, a claim that raises a host of questions and concerns, not the least of which is the doctrine of Scripture alone which assures us that the Bible and the Bible alone is sufficient to guide us in all matters of faith and practice. Jesus Calling only exists because Sarah Young had a deep desire to hear from God outside of the Bible. Tweet 2. She proclaims the insufficiency of the Bible. Jesus Calling only exists because Sarah Young had a deep desire to hear from God outside of the Bible. In the introduction she describes the book’s genesis: “I began to wonder if I … could receive messages during my times of communing with God. I had been writing in prayer journals for years, but that was one-way communication: I did all the talking. I knew that God communicated with me through the Bible, but I yearned for more. Increasingly, I wanted to hear what God had to say to me personally on a given day.” In those few sentences she sets up unnecessary competition between her revelation and what we are told of the Bible in 2 Timothy 3:16-17: “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” Biblically, there is no category for what she provides as the heart and soul of her book. Biblically, there is no need for it and no reason we should expect or heed it. 3. Her deepest experience of God comes through a practice God does not endorse. Young does not only endorse her practice of listening, but goes so far as to elevate it as the chief spiritual discipline. “This practice of listening to God has increased my intimacy with Him more than any other spiritual discipline, so I want to share some of the messages I have received. In many parts of the world, Christians seem to be searching for a deeper experience of Jesus’ Presence and Peace. The messages that follow address that felt need.” Notice that her solution to addressing the desire for Jesus’ Presence and Peace is not Scripture o

THE devotional book that you absolutely must have!

I absolutely love this devotion book. Sarah Young speaks from the heart and puts into words what I can not form but what I do feel. It is like "listening in a mirror." Listening, not reading. I can read the book, but listen to God's voice in my soul - where the Holy Spirit reflects (hence, mirror) that from those in whom He lives.I highly recomend this as a must have devotion.
