The Christian Book of Mystical Verse by A.W. Tozer

This book is a collection of verses, poems, prayers and hymns designed to aid the Christian in his devotional life. The word mystic used in the title of this book refers to that personal spiritual experience which is common to believers in Biblical times and also believers in the era following. A.W. Tozer refers to the evangelical mystic as one "who has been brought by the gospel into intimate fellowship with the Godhead." All the material in this book is based on sound theology and Scripture.

Authors include Isaac Watts, Charles and John Wesley, and Christina Rossetti and many others. This book is divided under topics such as spiritual warfare, the prayer of the quiet, and Christ's return to name a few. This is a helpful aid to time of personal devotion and worship.

I received this book from Moody Publishers for this review.

Taste and See by John Piper

This collection of 125 daily reading by author and pastor John Piper is not your ordinary devotional book. Each mediation focuses a specific topic using Scripture and asking hard questions about life. These questions are addressed using practical truths found in the Bible. Topics such as God's sovereignty, body image, retirement, hypocrisy, mental health, body image, gender, race, and many more are covered in these mediations.

The focus throughout this book is on saving the incomprehensible trustworthiness of God's promises and His supremacy. It is biblical doctrine applied in a practical way to every day life.
