My Review:

I love devotionals. If you were to look at my bookshelf in my living room, you would clearly see this to be true. I have a good dozen, and now am very happy to add Pause For Power by Dr. Warren Wiersbe. This book is wonderful in it's set up, with each devotional day undated so you can start at anytime during your year. I also love that by reading the short scripture reference on each day, you will read through 15 books of the Bible in a 12 month period., Job, Ecclesiastes, Isaiah, Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter and 1 John.

If you are looking for a new devotional to use for 2011, I highly recommend Pause For Power.

BUY IT: You can purchase Pause for Power by Dr. Warren Wiersbe online, directly from David C. Cook - it is also available through your local Christian bookseller.
