No Cape Required Devotion!

I am always on the lookout for devotionals to read for myself, or to read as a family endeavor.  I want something that will engage my teenage sons and this book has a great deal of potential to do that. 

In her book, No Cape Required: 52 Ways to Unleash your Inner Hero, Kristen Parrish provides 52 devotionals, each about 4 pages in length.  They are easy to read and focus on traits found in different characters from different movies, television programs and books.  They range from characters like Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games to John Coffey in the Green Mile to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and more.

She also looks at different virtues for each hero.  These include forgiveness, faithfulness, truthfulness, optimism, strong will, leadership, gallantry, courage and more.  At the end of each chapter Parrish ties the story to a passage of scripture.  Sometimes she might be stretching for a link, but overall, this is a fun book to read as a devotion. 

We need to remember that these are fictional characters and we may not always agree with the character used, but the point she is making is what is important.  So, our focus should be on the positive character and characteristics of these heroes. 

I would recommend this book!
