Voices of the Faithful - Review

Voices of the Faithful is a daily devotional authored collaboratively by missionaries representing the far reaches of every corner in the world.  These servants share their stories of faith, triumph over trials, amazing miracles, and the love of God for His people.  Each day's reading is uplifting and encouraging.  To accompany the inspiring stories, a Scripture verse and prayer are also written. 

As an added bonus for this big fan, Beth Moore penned the book's introduction as well as writing an introduction revealing each month's theme.  As always, Moore's genuine, conversational, loving, thought-provoking voice oozed from every word.  Her writing has a truly special quality that is so inviting to readers. 

Understandably, the format is designed to be a quick, manageable read each day.  However, I would have loved to have been able to read expanded, more in-depth and detailed accounts of several of the stories shared.  Still, I know God used the brief excerpts to touch my heart and will surely touch others.  I would recommend this devotional to others... especially those who desire to read of great faith and/or have a sincere heart for missions.

I received this book free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
