Book Review: Fixing My Eyes on Jesus

A few weeks ago, I was excited to receive a copy of Fixing My Eyes on Jesus: Daily Moments in His Word, a devotional book written by Anne Graham Lotz. The book includes 366 daily devotions. Each devotion begins with 1-2 Bible verses and is accompanied by a short 2-4 paragraph explanation. The explanations themselves sometimes include references to other verses. The devotions combine the author's life experiences with practical applications and things to think about. Also, the beginning of each month has a different brief excerpt from Streams in the Desert.

These devotions are the perfect length to start each day. They would also be great as a family devotion at dinner time or at the end of the day. Each devotion is challenging and encourages the reader to do something or consider something that allows him or her to focus more on Jesus. We are encouraged to share more about Jesus, read the Bible to learn more about him, lean on His promises, and pray.

This is a great devotional book. The devotions are Biblically based and encourage the reader to really learn more about and rely more on Jesus. They are short, but full of a great deal of thought-provoking ideas. It is a lovely book that would make a wonderful gift as well.

I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.

What devotional book are you reading right now?

That sounds lovely! I am enjoying my new devotional, too.

I always tend to discard devotionals...so several years ago I stopped buying them. Instead I read the Bible. I read it through cover to cover multiple times a year...each read through...I change translations. I 'see something' new everytime! :)
