Soul Food

A 40-Day Supply for Busy People

by Jim Dick


Price: £7.99
Publisher:River Publishing from Joining the Dots Distribution
Published:June 2012
This is a 40-day devotional book with short studies, some spanning more than one day, that takes Bible characters as its main emphasis and looks at what those people and stories have to tell us today. Thus we meet a whole host of situations that cover a range of topics all with biblical relevance but with a modern coating in short bite size chunks for the busy person who has perhaps got out of the habit of regular Bible time and devotional reading. The studies are light, cover both the Old Testament and New Testament, and in some instances are also mildly amusing, but they are snacks not meals despite being Soul Food. However on the whole as a lead in for refreshment and a starting point back into study they are fine, there is nothing here to put anyone off reading the Bible or spending devotional time as a daily occurrence and could be just the right sized motivator some people need.
