After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior's voice and begin listening for what He was saying. So with pen in hand, she embarked on a journey that forever changed her--and many others around the world.  In these powerful pages are the words and Scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. Words of reassurance, comfort, and hope.  Words that have made her increasingly aware of His presence and allowed her to enjoy His peace.  Jesus is calling out to you in the same way. Maybe you share the author's need for a great sense of "God with you". Or perhaps Jesus seems distant without you knowing why. Or maybe you have wandered farther from Him that you ever imagined you would. Here is a year's worth of daily readings from Young's journals to bring you closer to Christ and move your time with Him from monologue to a dialogue.  Each day is written as if Jesus Himself were speaking to you. Because He is. Do you hear Him calling?… (lisätietoja)

This is the second 2 star review i've written in years and years and it happened just 1 week after my previous 2 star review. I very rarely rate any book 2 stars (or 1 star) because my normal practice is to abandon a book as soon as i consider it to be a 1 or 2 star book, and i don't review any books which i don't finish.

I did finish this book even though i knew it was a problematic book, because it is significantly different than anything i had ever read. The reason it is problematic is the same reason that it is very different. The author, who is a missionary, believes that an essential element of praying is to listen so that God can communicate back to us. This belief that prayer is two way communication, and not just the presentation of requests to God, has been practiced by believers for thousands of years and is clearly demonstrated throughout both the Old and New Testaments. I agree with this practice and it is a part of my prayer life. Here is what makes the book problematic: the author has taken the things God has communicated to her in her prayer time and that she has recorded in her prayer journal, and made those communications the essence of this book, and does it in the first person as if Jesus is speaking directly to not just her, but to everyone. This moves God's communication from the personal realm into a public realm which actually seems very much like the author is writing a book of scripture for public use. I have a problem with this. If the book had been written in the third person and just expressed the idea that these are things God had communicated to her personally, i would give this a book a higher rating.

The book has one more problem, though this problem is not at all unique to this book, but is common in far too many (in fact, in most) Christian non-fiction books. After giving us a "word from Jesus" the author then lists several Bible references. Not the actual verses themselves, but rather the location of verses. i.e. Rom 12:1, I Cor 13:5 etc. I consider this to be the very worst aspect of most Christian non-fiction books. I feel that if a passage of scripture actually adds to the points being made, then the actual scripture should be quoted, not just alluded to by reference. It's bad writing as well as bad theology. The scriptures as originally written, were NOT divided into chapters and verses. The scriptures were written as books (with the exception of Psalms which actually were individual Psalms as written and then were collected into the book). The divisions into chapters and verses were done by men long after the books of the Bible were actually written. The purpose was to make it easier to find specific passages. However, the result of these divisions into chapters and verses is often to destroy the context and flow, and by extension, the thought being expressed in the passage by removing it from its context. The use by authors of just tacking on a list of references instead of quoting a passage further exacerbates the problem by further decontextualizing the passage because it makes the actual text unimportant to the book by not quoting the text.

Uniquely inspired treasures from heaven for every day of the year by missionary Sarah Young.
Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her messages. They are written from Jesus' point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling. It is Sarah's fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.

Jesus, Your ways are perfect; they are past finding out.

..........................

I became interested because of its devotional character and its distance from excessively rational judgment and attacking people, but I think that the way it influenced me was in making me see Jesus as the Father—I don’t know if it quotes the line an unusual number of times, but it’s a very “I and the Father are one” kind of book— and I think it deals with the divinity and authority of Jesus to a degree unusual for a book not set on excessively rational judgment and proving people wrong, taking them down. So I was willing to be changed at the same time that I was reassured that my concerns were valid in part.

................................

Jesus does not think like I do.... There isn’t any change I need that he can’t give me. ( )

Teens today are busy, homework after school programs and I am sure chores they do at home. This pocket-sized devotional is a wonderful way for teens to grab those few moments with God. Sarah has written this devotional just as if Jesus were speaking to your teen. “The devotions in this book are meant to be read slowly, preferably in a quiet place-with your Bible open”. I have Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, and I really enjoy her devotions in it, so I believe your teen will enjoy reading this devotional written specifically for the busy teens in today’s world.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I wanted to include this book as "Finished" for 2014 as a great closure to the year...Even though there have been some passages that have been missed by mistake and this is a book that is a continuous read, It did get finished today, December 31, 2014. This book, on the days I was able to pick it up, touched my life in the time I needed it and what I was going through at the time...Even the passage I read today touched on what I am still dealing with.

When I initially bought this book in approximately 2012, I didn't read it nearly enough. I may have picked it up once, maybe twice a month...Even this year, I didn't read it daily, but I picked it up more than I have this year than I have since I have owned it. When I initially saw this book on a christian website, it was outside the budget I wanted to spend for it. Then I went to a thrift store and found it for $2.15; if that wasn't a blessing, I don't know what is! Because before I found it at the thrift store, I would periodically go back and check the price, it was still more than what I was willing and able to spend at that time.

This little book is a 365 day devotional with scriptures at the end of each passage that coincides with each little devotion. None more than a page long, if it is, it's not more than a page and a half (but all the ones I was able to read, never were more than a page that I remember).

Those of you who enjoy daily devotions or looking for your first, this is a great little book. I truly enjoyed it, especially this year, with all I have been dealing & struggling with. This is my first real devotion that I remember picking up and was able to read through a lot more regularly than any other that I remember. I think I had one as a teen/early 20's but I never really touched it then. Now that I am older and can appreciate it more and need encouragement..this is a great tool... ( )

I dedicate Jesus Calling to my mother, whose encouragement inspired me to persevere in writing this book. She demonstrated her appreciation of my writing in poignant ways. She kept my manuscript beside her bed, so she could read it every morning. Once, while away from her home, she even asked me to fax her the readings day by day. After she died from cancer, I found portions of my writings that she had hand-copied into a journal. This mother who had prayed me through thick and thin, including years of rebellion, opened her heart fully to my devotional writing. Her oft-expressed desire to write children's books never came to fruition. But there is a sense in which she has written--through me--this bok. Thank you, Nani! Your legacy lives on.
