3-Minute Devotions to Laugh and Reflect Book Review

Within the pages of 3-Minute Devotions to Laugh and Reflect by Christopher D. Hudson and Stan Campbell, with cartoon artwork by Dennis Fletcher, you will find 90 devotions which combine clever cartoons to tickle your funny bone, alongside serious devotions to reflect on. Hence, the title.

The cartoons catch your eye first, then send you to the devotions. While the cartoons bring a smile, the short devotions leave you with a spiritual message. You might find yourself on the pages of 3-Minute Devotions to Laugh and Reflect, or you might find someone you know. Either way, there is something for everyone looking for devotions sprinkled with humor to start your day.

Here’s an example.

One cartoon shows a salesman in a used book store telling the lady looking at a copy of the Bible…”A bit of highlighting in Matthew, but Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and Obadiah are like new.”

That made me giggle. The devotion points out that while we have favorite sections of the Bible we return to, we must remember the Bible is a unified story. We need to read the entire book.

Amen?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.

Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?

The Most Important Stories of the Bible Book Review

The Most Important Stories of the Bible by Christopher Hudson and Stan Campbell is a wonderful book. In 182 pages it takes the reader through the Bible, highlighting stories in sections titled Beginnings, Patriarchs, Israel’s Family Becomes a Nation, Kings and Prophets, Stories of Jesus, and Stories of the Early Church.

Each chapter begins where the previous chapter left off, giving a brief synopsis before going into The Essential Story for that section of Scripture. Here the authors explain the story in concise, understandable language. The last section of each chapter ends with Essential Truth which is the takeaway from the story.

When I first received this book, I looked up several familiar stories to see how the authors handled them before reading the rest of the book. I came away from each story impressed by the way they were presented.

Is there someone in your life with whom you want to share the essential truth of God’s Word? Someone who maybe isn’t interested in reading the whole Bible? Someone who prefers summaries instead of the entire story? Then The Most Important Stories of the Bible is a book I highly recommend.

Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?

I wish you well.
