PODCAST 3 - Excerpt
With a catchy name like "Jazz, Java & Jesus", how can one not resist picking this book up? Because of that title, I decided to have a look at this book. I'm not a big one for devotionals - they seem all "fluff" and a quick thought of just getting that Bible reading in for the day with no real substance. Yes, I'm a real hard sell when it comes to this category of book.
"Jazz, Java & Jesus", although listed as a devotional, is so much more. I found Ms. Proctor's writing style engaging and personal. She starts with a forward that explains how the title of the book came about, and then settles down to deliver a nice message with each entry. Each entry is thought provoking with quite a bit of scripture, and will start you off to want to continue on studying your Bible. At the end of each section is a place for notes - a very nice addition to the book!! One of my favorite sections concentrates on the names of Jesus and I'm planning on spending a lot of time on that section. Another nice bonus are the puzzles at the end of the book. Unfortunately, the printer didn't do as good of a job on them as I'd like to see. They are a bit fuzzy and not crisp like the print in the rest of the book and look more like they had inserted a scan.
This is a wonderful book and I will be using it a lot in the future. Unlike other devotionals that I've tried that sit around on my shelf collecting dust, this one will be written in, creased, and will probably find a coffee stain or two before I'm done using it.
Note: I cannot find what version is used for scripture - nothing is noted. I only found a couple of places where a credit to a particular version is used. I have compared this to my King James Bible, and the scripture wording is different.
