I’m not sure why, but it always seems there are a lot more opportunities for women to have small group Bible studies than there are for men. There also seem to be a lot more devotional book options.
Even though I’m sure most of my readers are female, I would imagine they want to support the spiritual health of their children’s father. I’m always on the lookout for good resources to share with you, but rarely have any. So, I was interested when offered the opportunity to review the book A Minute of Vision for Men by Roger Patterson.
The book contains a short, one (small) paged devotional for each day of the year. They are dated, so if he misses a few days, he can just pick up with the current date and not give up trying to figure out the last one he completed.
The devotionals themselves have topics surrounding not just the issues facing many men, but framed around some of their typically favorite topics like sports. The entries contain simple, often interesting little stories with an obvious point to each. Instead of beginning with a scripture, they end with one. Some include an additional scripture in the body of the devotional which thankfully is written out and not just the scripture given.
If you are looking for a simple devotional to help your husband start or continue a daily exposure to scripture, this may be what you need. I like that the author also makes a lot of great practical points about how to treat wives, kids, co-workers and others – not leaving it up to the reader to attempt to guess the point or the appropriate behavior.
While no devotional book can be as helpful as pure scripture, it is a step many need to help them develop better Bibles Judy habits. This one may be just the one to help the men in your life.
