Ever wish God would speak to you? A Year with God by R.P. Nettlehorst is a book with daily readings featuring direct words from God from the Old Testament. Few of us spend much time in the Old Testament, but the Old Testament is full of direct quotations from God. A Year with God contains 365 readings that look at those words as well as a reflection on them from Nettlehorst.

The book is divided into different topical sections: Hope and Fear, Love and Hate, Perseverance and Quitting, Faith and Doubt, Loyalty and Betrayal, Companionship and Isolation, Mercy and Judgment, Forgiveness and Anger, Joy and Sadness, and Peace and Conflict. The readings are set out as generic days, so you can start where ever you want if there is a section that is more pertinent to you at the moment. A Year with God is a good devotional resource if you want daily Bible readings with some reflection for going deeper–especially if you want God’s direct words.
