Grace Notes

Philip Yancey, Grace Notes: Daily Readings with a Fellow Pilgrim (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2009).

Thanks to Zondervan for the review copy.

Those who are already fans of Philip Yancey will be excited to learn that material from his prolific writing career (and some unpublished works) have been turned into 366 (Feb. 29 is included) daily readings. Those who are unfamiliar with Yancey now have a great opportunity to be introduced to his work in bite-sized morsels.

These “morsels” are thoughtfully and thematically placed for each day of the year. A helpful explanation of the challenges and rationale behind the placement is included (p. 17). Those who are less familiar with Yancey’s books will also find the descriptive bibliography to be a helpful introduction to Yancey’s books (pp. 419-22).

Grace Notes provides a welcome option for someone who is looking for something slightly different for their daily devotions. Whether you agree or disagree with him, you will likely be moved and challenged.
