    Book Review

    I received a copy of this book from Book Sneeze to review.

    It's not for every audience. Some may find this book controversial as Ms. Young writes it from Jesus' POV. But the words she writes are based on inspiration that she felt Jesus was telling her at the time of writing, and on the Bible, and as a strong Christian reading it, it was very enlighting and though provoking.

    The book is in the form of a daily devotional... It would take approximately 6 months if you read one each day (I read it all in a day or two as I was reviewing it) On the back of the book it says that when you read the book "Your spirit will overflow - alive, awake, and joyful" and this was definately true. I absolutely loved it.

    Each days reading consisted of one page written by Sarah in Jesus' POV and then a second page of related Bible Verses.

    4 of 5 stars.

    Proving Jesus Loves You

    The world specializes in separation and losses. How comforting it is to know that nothing can separate us from Jesus' love. Jesus Lives is Sarah Young's follow up book to Jesus Calling. It is a devotional guide unlike most others.

    The devotions are short two-page readings. The first page contains a two or three paragraph reminder or promise from the Bible. It is written as though Jesus were speaking. The second page presents the Bible verses used to compose the reading. There are 180 readings in the book, and they are divided into sections based on the themes from Jesus' life and teachings: Adversity, Brokenness; Faith, Forgiveness, Grace, Hope, Joy, Love, Peace, Prayer -- and more.

    This is not a devotional to read only page-by-page, although surely that is recommended. It is also a devotional to keep and revisit, just as issues from these themes keep revisiting our lives. As we all know, the Bible is a living document and God helps us in our understandings in the light of our current needs. A scripture I read last week may seem much more relevant to me today then it did then. Jesus Lives will help connect scripture to the current needs in your life.

    Having said that, the fact that this book is written as though Jesus is speaking to me made me just a little uncomfortable. These aren't Jesus' words. Sarah Young wrote them. Also, I have been taught to be very careful of studying scripture out of the context in which it was written. Despite all of that, having looked this book over and carefully considered the writings and the scriptures associated with them, I believe that Sarah Young did an excellent job capturing the meanings and messages behind these scriptures.

    I would not suggest this book for the totality of one's daily Bible Study. It does, however make an excellent starting point for study. Especially if one is interested in or perusing the 46 themes from Jesus' life and teachings.

    Great Daily Devotional

    Jesus Lives is an inspirational devotional that focuses on God's compassionate presence. Written as if Jesus wrote the words and supported by bible verses, each entry dares you to draw closer and closer to the Savior.

    The book includes a guide to the various themes of each entry, making the book a great reference tool. Themes include attitude, depending on Him, forgiveness, prayer, thankfulness, trials and many others.

    Although some may feel uncomfortable reading words written as if the author is Jesus when it is not the bible, Young admits that the Bible is the only "infallible Word of God."

    When I received this book from Thomas Nelson as part of their book review program, I wanted to sit down and read this book in one sitting. However, many of the devotions were so influential that I read more slowly, allowing the bible verses to make their impact.

    I highly recommend this book - especially as a gift. The beautiful padded hardcover and compact size make it an attractive addition to any nightstand, purse or car - wherever you may need an encouraging reminder of God's love and grace.
