This journey was a blessing. To read God’s Word should not be a chore and this was NOT. It was easy to understand and the application questions were truly something to ponder. I will do this again as it was a true time of reflection.

Do you have difficulty getting into the Word on a daily basis? Trouble starting and maintaining a routine of reading the Bible? This book might help kickstart the desire and Proverbs is a great way to start. One of my favorite things to do is read through the book of Proverbs. Full of everyday wisdom, Proverbs holds enough chapters for one a day for an entire month, well...at least those with 31 days. Consider the stresses of work, life and now school starting up; August is one of those months where a little extra guidance and wisdom is welcome. I’ve even gotten into the routine of reading this (or having my kids read a chapter) each night. It gives us the opportunity to reflect on the wisdom read while falling asleep. That’s better than having the weight of the day’s stresses on my mind. This hardbound book is small in size but big in quality. A green and white cover adorned with gold letter makes it clean and simple. Table of contents at the beginning allows the reader the option of searching out a specific topic vs reading through from front to back. And each section has the title, covers a verse (or a few of them) and includes some additional insight for the reader along with a prayer and finishing with questions for continued reflection. Verses are from the NIV version. There are enough black spots in each section that also allows the reader to jot down thoughts, making this usable as a journal. And even though the book may not lay flat like a Bible, it does have a built-in ribbon bookmark. 191 pages, this isn't a thick book. In fact, it is small enough to fit in a purse or school backpack. Honestly, I think it would be a nice gift for anyone going off to college as well as those staying at home. It would also make a nice addition for those that host AirBnBs or have company over. It’ll look great on the coffee or side table along with some home décor. I received a complimentary copy from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinion.

0 Minutes in the Word: Proverbs is a nice combination of gift book and devotional. It is written to be easily digested in a short amount of time, but with enough thought behind each entry to provide depth for the reader. With all the God-inspired wisdom in it, Proverbs is a perfect book for a devotional focus. There are 46 separate devotions in this book, and they work there way through the book of Proverbs. Each entry follows the same basic format: there is a key Bible Verse (or two or three) from the larger passage that the entry is based upon. Next is a 1-2 page devotional presentation, relating the passage to today. This is followed by a short prayer based on the key points of the passage. Finally, there are questions for reflection, centered around the message and passage. Some examples of devotional topics include: Don't Follow Your Heart; A Path That Leads To Destruction; Don't Waste Your Breath; Wisdom With Money and Work; and Speak Words That Heal. As a devotional reader, I appreciate these shorter 5-10 minute devotions, as they are perfect for reading in the morning when getting ready for work. They provide insight into the wisdom of the book of Proverbs, and the questions are a jump start for thinking about how I can apply the ideas to my life. I would recommend 10 Minutes in the Word: Proverbs to anyone looking for a devotional with short but deep devotions to help grow your relationship with Jesus Christ.

10 Minutes in the Word: Proverbs was published by Zondervan in May of this year. This little book is just under 200 pages. There are forty-six entries, and each entry is four pages long. The first page of every entry has a quote from Proverbs, the second and third page tell you what chapter and verses to read from your own Bible, followed by a easy-to-read interpretation to help you make sense of the proverb (while quoting other Bible verses). The last page has a prayer, and things to reflect on/questions to ask yourself. I love the book of Proverbs. It is filled with so much wisdom. Every time I read it I am incredibly convicted, so I had some pretty high expectations... And they were met! This is such a wonderful little book to add to your quiet time, bring to group/family studies, or to give as a gift. I'm truly amazed by how much information the authors (who aren't listed anywhere?) packed in. I enjoyed it so much I accidentally read it in a few days, instead of throughout a week or two. As for the quality... The pages are sewn together, and the paper is nice and thick with crisp black font. There's even a little ribbon bookmark. * I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review (thank you!). All thoughts are 100% my own.

“The book of Proverbs teaches us how to become wise in daily living as we experience a relationship with Jesus Christ,” the introduction states in the book, 10 Minutes in the Word: Proverbs. ~ What ~ At one-hundred-and-ninety-two-pages, this small hardbound targets men and women seeking a short devotional taken from Proverbs. Using the New International Version of the Holy Bible, forty-six chapters cover the thirty-one chapters. A fill-in ownership page, table of contents, introduction, and notes, as well as a ribbon marker, complete the book. In this condensed book, from one to several Proverbs are included in each of the chapters that cover four pages. After a title, a couple of Bible verses are written out, followed by instructions to read specific Proverbs. Two pages cover the topic, usually first discussing what the verses mean, ending with an application to the reader. A prayer and highlighted reminder tip end the chapter. Some topic titles include Wisdom Calls Out (Proverbs 1:20-33), Dealing with Temptation (Proverbs 7), Don’t Waste Your Breath (Proverbs 9:1-12), Choosing Words Carefully (Proverbs 13:1-11), Responding Well (Proverbs 15), Materialism is a Spiritual Issue (Proverbs 22:1-16), There are No Shortcuts (Proverbs 26), and Noble Character (Proverbs 31:10-31). ~Why ~ I like that all the verses of Proverbs are included and in numerical order in the book. Having a little background information Solomon and other historical figures is interesting. Since Proverbs is one of my favorite books in the Bible, I appreciate that the devotions are well written. One example I enjoyed was The Sin of All Sins taken from Proverbs 11:2 involving pride. The paragraphs discuss how pride is the root of all sin and is self-centeredness turned outward. One way to overcome this sin is humility through trusting in Christ, not ourselves. The prayer is a confession of our pride and asking of forgiveness. The tip challenges the reader to guard against this problem in all areas of our lives. ~ Why Not ~ Those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ may not appreciate this read. This is not an in-depth devotional so may be best for new believers and not replace daily reading of the Bible. Some may not care for the referred Bible version. ~ Wish ~ Not a fan of the NIV, I wish other Bible versions were offered in this lovely gift book. ~ Want ~ If you are looking for a thoughtful gift for someone special who loves reading Biblical Proverbs, this would make an excellent choice if you like the NIV. Thanks to Book Look Bloggers for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
