Living a Mighty Faith
I loved Faith Like Potatoes so when I saw a chance to read Angus Buchan's daily meditations, I didn't hesitate to pick Living a Mighty Faith. I've not read all the meditations but many and they are simple and practical, dealing with the every-day challenges of being patient with a child, lending a hand to a neighbor, savoring the moment, turning to God, trusting Him. But what they lack is depth, that Aha! moment when something difficult is clarified or you transcend the ordinary. Still, as a daily meditation guide, it is useful because of the way it's organized, with a verse from Scripture, a meditation and then a short prayer. I especially enjoyed the passages where he shares some of his life as a farmer, father and husband. It is beautifully bound with a ribbon to keep your place. It makes a lovely gift as well. Thanks to BookLook for providing me with a review copy.
