Book Review: Yours is the Day, Lord, Yours Is the Night by Jeanie & David Gushee

Yours is The Day, Lord, Yours is The Night
Jeanie & David Gushee
About the Book:
Yours Is the Day, Lord, Yours Is the Night gives a framework for prayerful devotions with a morning and evening prayer for each day of the year. The prayers have been selected to reflect the seasons and the liturgical calendar. They are intended not to replace your personal, spontaneous prayers but to serve as a springboard for them.
Editors Jeanie and David Gushee have collected inspiring contributions from Protestant, Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox sources; from all continents; from the Old Testament; and from each century of Christian history. Yours Is the Day, Lord, Yours Is the Night will enhance your commitment to God and personal connection to the Christian tradition and the Church universal.

My Review:
I really love this book.  I am drawn to devotionals because they pull scriptures from the bible that I may not have thought or knew about.  This is a daily devotional that gives you two scriptures or devotionals per day, 1 for the morning and 1 for the night.  I like the way they are all centered around the time, morning devotionals that set the tone for the day and evening devotionals that calm the soul for the night.  I like that they are dated so I can just go with the date and use it every year!  This will be a book used everyday in our family.  2 thumbs up!

*I received the book in this post compliments of Booksneeze for purposes of this post, however all opinions are my own.
