A Year With Jesus Daily Readings And Reflections by R.P. Nettelhorst

A Year with Jesus, the primary focus is to allow the scriptures that contain Jesus' dialogue to uniquely speak to the reader. The author follows each reading with insights and applications to help explain the context and nuances of the text. The unique titling of each meditation and the nontraditional themes and organization help bring Jesus to our daily lives. Too many times the impact and grandness of the actual words Jesus spoke, as recorded in the Bible, are lost in the telling of the story. This is a description the author gives of this book, which this would have been true for me if the author would have actually written the book as stated.


The scriptures in the book are from the Old Testament as worded in in the preface of the book. You can read by different topics or as a devotional day by day. Some of the topics are: Love and Hate, Truths and Lies, Friends and Enemies, Belief and Disbelief, Patience and Impatience. As I skipped around to some of these topics in the book, I began to notice the author contradicting himself in a few of the reflections after the scripture. This turned me off right away, but that is just me.

I got the feeling the writer was not well educated in the word of God, either/or the author has doubts that the bible is actually God’s word. His beliefs and my Christian beliefs became very different about half way through this book, so I have to be honest and say that everyone is different, and I believe you will have to read it for yourself, because everyone has different beliefs.

  1. I know you like to read but, do you like books or do you use the Kindle or similar device?

    I'm thinking of buying a Kindle and was wondering what is your opinion of them.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Hey Steve,
    I own a Nook by Barnes & Noble, BUT I wished I would have waited and bought the Kindle Fire, so that is what I recommend. Thanks for stopping by Steve.
