Book review: Redeemed

So, I was excited to be contacted by First Look and I said 'yes' to review the book, Redeemed by Big Daddy Weave songwriter, Mike Weaver! The 208-page devotional book is centered on Big Daddy Weave’s single, “Redeemed,” which spent multiple weeks at #1 on national Christian radio charts. Throughout the collection of 30 devotions in the book, Weaver focuses on redemption, grace, and the healing power of Christ’s love. This book would be a nice addition to regular Bible reading. It has 30 chapters, you read a chapter a day. Within each chapter, it contains Scripture, quotes, a timely tip, prayer for today and a place where you can jot down your own thoughts about whatever the chapter is about. Here are some of the promises from God in Scripture and quotes from the book.
"Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life--even though invisible to spectators--is with Christ in God. He is your life." Colossians 3:3 (MSG)
"Do not remember the past events, pay no attention to things of old. Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert. ~Isaiah 43:18-19 (HCSB)
"If we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong." ~1 John 1:9 (NLT)
"Do not have other gods besides Me." ~Exodus 20:3 (HCSB)
"It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth....Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." ~Acts 4:10, 12 (NIV)

"If you are God's child, you are no longer bound to your past or to what you were. You are a brand new creature in Christ Jesus." ~ Kay Arthur
"We can have full confidence in God's promises because we can have full faith in His character." ~Franklin Graham
"A tear drop on earth summons the King of Heaven." ~ Chuck Swindoll
"Like a spring of pure water, God's peace in our hearts brings cleansing and refreshment to our minds and bodies. ~ Billy Graham
"Claim all of God's promises in the Bible. Your sins, your worries, your life--you may cast them all on Him." ~Corrie Ten Boom
I like this devotional book and it's small enough to tuck away in your handbag or tote! I recommend it. Lastly, here is the song, 'Redeemed', take a listen!

(Thanks to Worthy and First Look for a review copy. All opinions expressed are mine.)
