Review: Fixing My Eyes on Jesus: Daily Moments in His Word by Anne Graham Lotz



Review: Fixing My Eyes on Jesus: Daily Moments in His Word

The introduction to this devotional series provides a wonderful illustration of what this author intends for the rest of this book, to point the reader toward the true north of life, Jesus.  Each day then seeks to continue in that course.  There’s encouragement, correction, teaching, and even reproof if the reader cares to look that deeply.  She does not shy away revealing some of her own “teachable moments.”  The tone is always gentle and infused with love.   Good way to start your day, or lift up a day that’s not going the way you’d hoped, or to prepare for the next day.  It reads well any time of the day. 

The author draws from the entire Bible for this series, primarily New Testament, but given the focus that is not unexpected or a flaw, but shows a balanced breadth of Scripture use, in my opinion. 

A few comments about the electronic version, which is the version I used for this review.  I received the version for Kindle.  It performed as expected for me.  It is searchable, has an active table of contents, allows notes, pretty much does it all without difficulty.  Only issue for me was the use of the old location numbers rather than page numbers. Don’t know if that is the review copy issue or not.

If you are looking for a devotional book, I would recommend this one to you.  

This book was provided for me in exchange for this review via BookSneeze.
