Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Allison, who has been an editor at several publishing houses, enriches our appreciation of the variety and scope of Christian books available today. He holds that Christ-centered devotion is necessary for spiritual growth and limits his selections accordingly by excluding Christian writers who affirm non-Christian religions. Apart from this narrow view, this is an excellent reference guide, with approximately 250 annotations ranging from devotional classics to more general inspirational books, daily devotionals, inspirational poetry, fiction, prayer collections, journals, discipleship resources, and more--all drawn from most Christian denominations. Historical information, a glossary, and addresses for daily devotional magazines complement the selections to make this a well-organized, valuable resource. (A companion volume, Swords & Whetstones: A Guide to Christian Bible Study Resources, is forthcoming in October.)
