This book is awesome. It's a 365-day devotional. Each devotion is short – 1/2 to 3/4 of a page – and on its own page.
The book is full of stories about the Bakers' ministry in Africa. The stories alone are worth the price of the book, even if you didn't read any of the devotional thoughts that accompany them! When Heidi and Rolland talk about what they have seen Jesus do, it inspires you.
I haven't read all 365 pages yet, but the ones I have read have been tremendous. I definitely recommend getting this book. I really believe you receive an impartation from the author when you “sit at the feet of the prophets” and read their material… and Heidi and Rolland Baker are definitely two people that any Christian should want an impartation from!
If you've been following my book reviews for any length of time, you all know I have a real thing for historical fiction. Particularly fiction set in the Old West. 🙂 A Match of Wits is one of those, but it's not like every other piece of Old Western fiction because…
This book is hilarious.
I don't mean just a little funny here and there, either. I mean rollicking, side-holding, trying-to-breathe laughing funny. I was actually really surprised by that. Since when is Western fiction funny? But this one is, and I needed the laughs, and I loved it.
In addition to the humor, the book had a GREAT plot. The story line was compelling. The characters are well-developed; the heroine is powerful and witty; the historical research appears to be well-done.
I would definitely recommend getting this book for a fabulous Friday night read. You won't be able to put it down.
