Book Review: God's Love Letters to You

God’s Love Letters to You is a 40-day devotional written by Dr. Larry Crabb. Each day’s devotion begins with scripture and then a “love letter from God.” At the end of each letter is a reflection and then a prayer section.

I wasn’t sure about reading a devotional for a book review, but I absolutely loved it. I would like to have had space in the book to write my reflections, but I quickly acquired my own journal to do so.

Each day, I felt as if God was truly speaking to me in the letter. Sometimes the letters were very blunt and straight to the point, however, there was still the love of God contained in each letter. The reflection section really challenged me to think about the scripture and my biases. It also challenged me to truly search my heart. As for the prayer section, I was able to admit my weaknesses and acknowledge God for who He truly is.

Because of the strength of the letters and how they touched my heart, I truly believe that Dr. Crabb sought God’s guidance in writing this devotional. I am eager to read more of his works.

I highly recommend this book to anyone in search of a powerful devotional.
