Book Review: God’s Love Letters to You

My latest Booksneeze book review is of God’s Love Letters to You by Dr. Larry Crabb. Based on Crabb’s book 66 Love Letters, this newest book is a 40-day devotional guide. Each day focuses on a different book of the Bible, includes a brief Scripture passage (usually one or two verses), a few devotional thoughts, some reflection questions, and a suggested prayer.

The devotional guide is designed to help the reader view Scripture as deeply personal letters from God. Although brief, I found Crabb’s devotional thoughts to be enlightening and often just what I needed to hear for that day. Reading the guide made me eager to read 66 Love Letters, which I hope to do soon.

That said, there are a couple of changes I would suggest for the devotional guide. For one, I would expand it to 66 days rather than limit it to 40 days, in keeping with the book that serves as its basis. I would also have enjoyed more than just a couple of verses of Scripture each day to give greater context and meaning to the passage.

All in all, I found God’s Love Letters to You to be an enjoyable and encouraging, albeit too-brief, devotional companion to my daily Bible study. It will most likely find a home on my bookshelf and be re-read over time.
