In his short book, The 100 Most Encouraging Bible Verses, Troy Schmidt has written a book which is designed to give the readers a shot of hope and encouragement along their journey.
The book contains as the title states, 100 verses, which according to Schmidt are the most encouraging passages in the Bible. Each verse is listed at the top of the page and a one page short devotion follows after that.
The book works as a quick devotional or when you need a dose or extra dose of encouragement, it's a quick and easy read.
Schmidt uses a variety of translations, which I found a bit unsettling, since I like to stick with one version, however, that does not take away from the theme or message of the devotional.
It's always interesting to read someone else's top 100 encouraging verses, because there are always verses which are left out which I thought should be included. Overall, this is an easy to read and quick read devotional. It seems patterned to be somewhat similar to the Our Daily Bread devotional.
In the end, this is a good book to read on those rainy days.
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
