Thoughts of John

What is on my mind.

A devotional full of inspiration



DeMoss, Nancy Leigh. The Quiet Place : Daily Devotional Readings. Chicago: Moody Publishers, 2012. $16.25

The author Nancy L. DeMoss has touched the lives of millions of women through Revive Our Hearts and the True Woman Movement, calling them to heart revival and biblical womanhood. Her love for the Word and the Lord Jesus are infectious, and permeate her online outreaches, conference messages, books, and two daily nationally syndicated radio programs-Revive Our Hearts and Seeking Him with Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Her books have sold more than 2,500,000 copies. The Quiet Place is formatted in the usual format for a devotional book. There is the month, day, Bible Reading for the day, and a comment on the reading. The devotional has a reading for the first day of the year to the last day of the year. The comments are all very well written. The author on the June 1 reading takes a look at James 4:10. The comment centers around a proud person verses a broken person. “Proud people desire to be known as a success. Broken people are motivated to be faithful and to make others successful. Proud people are elated by praise and deflated by criticism. Broken people know that any praise for their accomplishments belongs to the Lord, and that criticism can help them become more like Christ. Proud people keep others at arm’s length. Broken people are willing to take the risk of getting close to others. Proud people are concerned about consequences and problems caused by their sin. Broken people are more concerned about how their sin has grieved and dishonored a holy God. Proud people feel worthy of respect. Broken people feel a desperate need for God’s mercy.” I could go on with numerous examples like this one throughout the book. The book is very well written and is perfect for anybody who wants an excellent devotional book. The book was provided to me by Moody Press for this review.
