Most people recognize the name Darlene Zschech as the worship leader from Australia who penned the song "Shout to the Lord". So I was very interested in reading the devotional book Revealing Jesus ~ after all, someone who has such a tremendous heart for the Lord (as revealed in her worship music) probably has some profound things to share in a daily devotional.
I wasn't disappointed.
Revealing Jesus takes the reader day-by-day on a journey to greater depth and intimacy with the Lord. Each month begins with a quote taken from the lyrics of a worship song, and the devotionals build one upon another. However, you could easily pick this book up in, say, the middle of June and be challenged to grow in your faith just as much as if you began reading it on the first of January.
Starting with a Bible verse and ending with a prayer, each day's reading spurs the reader on toward love and good works, encouraging with truth and forthrightness that leave you thinking more deeply about the things of God. With strong conviction and an understanding heart, Darlene Zschech's writes to make an impact without the sting of judgement. Revealing Jesus is a devotional that can be read year after year.
On my "Page Turner Scale" of 1 to 5, I gave this book a 5.
