Devotionals are a way to dig into the
Bible in short readings. Most devotionals feature a Scripture to
read and then the authors expounding of the Scripture. Some even
feature a small prayer to close out your devotion time. R. P.

“Arrogance and Humility,” “Friends and Enemies,” “Belief

Undeserved,” “Good and Evil,” “Fidelity and Treachery,”
and “Life and Death.”

the backdrop of the way of Darkness. I enjoyed this book and plan on
reading it again as a reflection book to encourage myself to dig
deeper into my relationship with God.
