3 Timeless Devotional Books

This blog recommends three timeless Christian devotional books. Devotional books consist of some combination of Scripture, Biblical commentary, and/or prayers. The following book suggestions are considered classics due to their continued popularity over time.

  1. My Utmost for His Highest Updated Edition by Oswald Chambers contains daily Scripture and Biblical commentary for a whole year.
  2. The Valley of Vision edited by Arthur Bennett is a thick book of beautiful and meaningful prayers.
  3. Morning & Evening written by Charles Spurgeon and edited by Larry Pierce consists of Scripture and brief Biblical commentary for every morning and evening for a full year.

Devotionals are the solution for many Christians who want to deepen their relationship with God. These books help new Christians understand how to apply Scripture and develop a daily routine of prayer with Bible reading. Mature Christians also enjoy devotionals as they seek to get new revelation from Scripture and crave inspiration for profound prayer. (These titles can be purchased on nearly any major bookseller site.)

  1. God’s Smuggler by Brother Andrew is about a Dutch Christian who smuggled Bibles into many European countries when they were forbidden due to communism.
  2. The Heavenly Man by Paul Hattaway is written about a Chinese man named Brother Yun who suffered terrible persecution in his own country because of his faith.
  3. Bruchko by Bruce Olson captures the story of a young American who was determined to share Christ with a notorious Indian tribe in South America.
  4. A Cry from the Streets by Jeannette Lukasse tells the story of Dutch missionaries who felt called to care for poor orphans living on the streets of Brazil.
  5. City of Tranquil Light by Bo Caldwell weaves together the real experiences of a variety of missionaries into one beautiful fiction book about an American couple living as missionaries in China.

These incredible books will inspire you to seek God’s will for your life and trust in His provision no matter the circumstances. (These titles could probably be borrowed from a local library. If not, they can be purchased on nearly any major bookseller site.)
