"Revealing Jesus" Book Review

Revealing Jesus: A 365-Day Devotional
by Darlene Zschech

Darlene Zschech may be most well known for her singing voice, but she is also the author of a 365 day devotional titled, Revealing Jesus.  The book is organized into characteristics of Jesus (one for each month of the year), such as faithful, friend of sinners, savior…  Each section’s daily devotions revolve around that month’s characteristic.  Each daily devotion is one page long consisting of a title, coordinating Bible verse, devotion, & short prayer.  You can easily see Darlene Zschech’s passion for Jesus in her words, which are simple, true, lovely, reflective, & sometimes reveal her musical heart (she references Psalms, old hymns, etc. on occasion).  A small few of the devotions are authored by others, taken from classic devotions penned by some of the great writers of the faith.  Revealing Jesus is a yearlong devotional designed to take you into the heart of who Jesus is.  It is not intimidating or condemning, but hopeful and challenging. 

The book itself is a beautiful hard cover with embossed cover, dark teal type, & the occasional monochromatic-esque photograph/illustration featuring handwritten lyrics that reveal and revere our Savior & King, Jesus.  There is also a worship CD {as well as a CD/DVD combo} available from Darlene Zschech of the same name as the devotional, however sold separately.         

Bookish Love,

*I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
