Revealing Jesus - A 365 Day Devotional: A Book Review

About The Book:

Powerful Encounters With the Heart of Our Savior For Every Day

Do you long for more of God's presence? Do you ache to see Him at work in your life? Do you desire His peace and rest? Renowned worship leader Darlene Zschech invites you to gather with her around the Word of God. Born out of her own yearnings that she poured onto the pages of journals, these meditations and Scriptures reveal Jesus and speak of His finished work--how He tenderly cares for you and wants you to know Him.

Honest, raw, and beautifully written, these devotions will inspire your journey and encourage you in every season. Come, sit at the feet of our Lord, be strengthened in your weakness, embrace His love for you, and breathe in His peace.

About The Author:

Darlene Zschech is acclaimed worldwide as a singer, songwriter, worship leader, and speaker--most notably for her involvement in the music from Hillsong Church over many years. Although she has achieved numerous gold albums and her songs are sung in many nations, her success stands as a testimony to her life's passion to serve God and people with all her heart.

Mark and Darlene's life commitment to do whatever they can to bring answers and relief to human suffering prompted the birth of HOPE: Rwanda to bring hope and healing to that nation seemingly forgotten since the genocide of 1994. As this HOPE has spread into Cambodia, Vanuatu, India, Uganda, and beyond, their work through HOPE: Global continues to gather momentum. They also actively work with Compassion International serving the world's poorest children.

In 2011, Mark and Darlene became senior pastors of Hope Unlimited Church on the beautiful Central Coast of New South Wales, where they now live with their family. While they travel extensively and have the honor of ministering around the globe, Darlene says, "First and foremost I am a woman who simply and wholeheartedly loves Christ, and serves Him through loving my family, serving the church, and speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves."

My Review:

Hillsong Music and Darlene Zschech have been favorite Praise and Worship music of mine for  the last 17 years or so. Many of the songs have brought me to a place of ultimate worship of God and allowed me to grow in my walk with Him more than most music. I was very excited to read Zschech's new book, Revealing Jesus: A 365-Day Devotional.

The devotional is very nicely organized, with each devotional surrounded by hymn lyrics and lyrics from music that complements the writing. With the book being a dated devotional, each month has theme. These are:

January - Faithful
February - Solid Rock
March - Shield
April - Holy One
May - The Gate
June - Savior
July - Risen One
August - Redeemer
September - Breath of Life
October - Peace
November - Friend of Sinners
December - Messiah

The book is the perfect way to start or end your day as you dig deep in scripture and allow Jesus to be revealed to you! 

A great gift idea for any Darlene Zschech fan for a birthday or even Christmas!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
