Savoring the Supremacy of God in All of Life.
For some reason I just didn’t connect with this book and felt that a great deal of it was redundant. The chapters are short but not too short 2 to 3 pages rather than a half page like many devotionals. One of my favorite devotionals.

It is a series of short devotionals, in all, that I read as part of my morning devotions.

I can see that some people truly enjoyed this book which is wonderful; but I think I will stick to Lewis and Chesterton.

And when I come to die whether soon or late these two truths will stand by my bed and, with infinitely strong and infinitely tender hands, lift me up to God.
I found most of them somewhat interesting, but a bit dry on the whole. Jun 22, Leesgoodfood rated it it was amazing. To ask other readers questions about A Godward Lifeplease sign up. His heart for God’s word and for teaching is amazing!
