Everyone struggles with discouragement as they face various trials of life, big or small. Whether you are struggling with your health, family, job, or relationships, God wants to give you hope and peace again.
What does he want you to know and remember in the hard times? This book goes straight to the source of all Truth to reveal how much God loves you and how he’s right by your side through thick and thin. The 100 verses that are highlighted include well-known passages as well as hidden treasures you may have never read. Each verse is followed by a brief devotional reading that will help you find understanding and comfort from the text–and in the process draw you ever nearer to God. The book’s length and focus make it perfect as a daily meditation or to read as a family. It also makes an ideal gift for those who love the Bible and seek the hope of God’s promises.
When I was reading this, I tried to pick out my favorite Bible verse in this book. I couldn’t. Every other page, I found a new favorite verse. So, yes, all of the verses are very great.
Each of the–I am honestly not sure what to call them–descriptions (kinda) were very good. Schmidt did a great job making it ‘real life.’ It is hard to explain. He wrote about each verse in a practical manner. He also had a great writing style.
All of the verses were very encouraging, which is obvious because the title of this book is The 100 Most Encouraging Verses of the Bible.
I can’t really rate the cover. It is plain. So, I am not going to give it any star rating.
As for the book, I am definitely giving it 5 stars. It was well written, inspiring, encouraging, and overall a great book. I most definitely will recommend this book to everyone!
