When God’s Word Speaks

Book review by Fiona Taylor

When God's Word SpeaksTo commemorate 75 years since the founding of Wycliffe Bible Translators by Cameron Townsend, an anniversary devotional book was published in 2016 containing stories from around the globe which shared some accounts of the impact of Bible translation on individuals and communities.

The devotional’s modern layout and graphics are teamed with powerful stories and make this a wonderful book suitable for personal reading, family devotions, small groups or as a coffee-table book.

Each of the 60 short chapters stands alone, so the book need not be read from cover to cover – perfect for many people who may not have the time or interest to read a complete book, but who might prefer to snatch a few minutes of inspiration and encouragement.

While the reader is transported from country to country, the truth of God’s Word is clear and applicable for all, regardless of location, background or circumstances. Many of today’s readers are not looking for long expressive prose, but would prefer short, direct writing, often with a related graphic.

This is a high-quality devotional book which has integrated the expectations of today’s readers, without watering down the life-changing message of hope and truth.

Verse for today

You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the Lord, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by chasing after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes.
