Revealing Jesus: A 365-Day Devotional - Book Review

Darlene Zschech, renowned worship leader, song writer, and speaker, pours out her heart of praise in the book Revealing Jesus: a 365-Day Devotional.  Based on her personal prayer journal and rooted in her longing for Jesus to be revealed in her life, she engages the reader to draw closer to God and know Him more.  Styled in the typical traditional format of opening with a Scripture passage and closing with a short prayer for each day of the year, she begins each month centered on a theme and introduced with the lyrics of a hymn. 

In the easy-to-read and concise one-page daily reading, she reminds of God’s love and care and points to His Holy Spirit for our strength and joy. She reminds us of the various facets of His character as revealed in His names in the Bible.  While drawing on many characters throughout the Bible as relatable examples, she shows how God is also calling us to Himself, calling us to a bold and gutsy faith that stands and reflects Christ wherever we find ourselves.  Through themes for reflection and meditation, she inspires us to live knowing that everyday life itself can be an act of worship. 

The classy cover and page designs invite the reader to open it and ponder the words and reflect.  This book would be a great gift book for a wide range of people – new or mature believers or worship leaders, etc., whether or not you are an actual fan of her music.  A companion CD is also available.
