    Voices of the Faithful Book 2

    Voices of the Faithful Book 2 (REVIEW)

    Published by Thomas Nelson in 2009, this attractively packaged devotional book packs a wallop in terms of individual daily devotions, the accompanying Scripture verses, and a neat wrap-up of a prayer at the end of each devotion. Meaty, though succint, the devotions should prove to be an inspirational boon to missionary folk - from those on the field to those retired from the field, as well as family and friends of missionaries. Written in a casual, relaxed vein, the devotions would also appeal to non-missionaries, though I suspect the references and notes focusing on the specific ins and outs of missionary living would be a draw primarily for those called to full-time Christian service.

    While I loved the look and feel of the book - it is extremely attractive, hardbound, and compelling - and did enjoy browsing through the daily devotions, I did not feel as captivated nor inspired as I have by other books of the same genre, as with the timeless Streams in the Desert series. I am not sure why, but this felt more like a coffee-table book than a hardhitting or intensely spiritual handbook.

    I would recommend this as gifts for pastors, Sunday School teachers, missionaries and those connected with any sort of mission work, but not for the average run-of-the-mill church-goer, nor for a person looking for intense spiritual revival or renewal.

    Voices of the Faithful Book 2 Review

    Voices of the Faithful Book 2

    Compiled and monthly introductions by Kim P. Davis and series creator and introduction by Beth Moore.

    I had the fortunate opportunity from Thomas Nelson Books to read Voices of the Faithful Book Two: Inspiring Stories of Courage from Christians Serving Around the World compiled and monthly introductions by Kim P. Davis and series creator and introduction by Beth Moore.

    Each day provided a new prayer and a devotional reading as told by various missionaries around the world. I liked the concept of the book but would have liked perhaps a lengthier version of each story that was told. To hold the book to one devotional a day, limited the length and perhaps in some instances, the quality of the message.

    Instead of reading this book over the span of days, I would have preferred to devote a day for a couple of the readings to allow it to sink in. The messages are well written, provided insight into other worlds and gave encouragement to the Christian faith. It's an excellent resource to see what people endure for the sake of their beliefs and religion. All the contributers have one goal, one mission which is to share in the teachings of the Christian faith.

    I personally feel this is not a book to be taken lightly to read. I think a good faith is ideal for being able to want to read this book. It is enlightening but to me, enlightening to the right audience.

    These Missionaries are the Voices of the Faithful

    When I first started to read "Voices of the Faithful Book 2", I really had no idea of the trials and tribulations that missionaries around the world face on a regular basis. I only thought I did. I've heard the stories occasionally in church, and listen to several missionaries give their testimonies, but I never truly got a grasp on it. What these people face is very deep. It's not just about the occasional resistance they get when trying to enter foreign countries, cities, towns, or villages. This is ongoing. And, it goes much deeper than a little resistance and red tape.

    "Voices of the Faithful Book 2" is a daily devotional book, compiled by Kim P. Davis. The books consists of short stories written by hundreds of missionaries around the world. There is a story for each day of the year, along with a scripture. Each month focuses on a different theme. These people give stories of their journeys and desires. They are talking to you, the reader, and also talking to God. They speak of God's miracles, love, and hearing His voice.

    The cover of this book makes you feel as though you are holding a classy gift that someone gave you, but at the same time, it feels like there is a journey waiting inside. It's beautifully designed and has a 'warm' feel. The cover is a perfect fit for the content it holds.

    Some of the stories in "Voices of the Faithful Book 2" are small, short stories of encouragement. Some are tragic stories, such as the story titled "Bonded by Tragedy" where the missionaries daughter has to be brought to a burn center in the states. The outcome was good, and a purposed reason was given as to how God used the incident to bring accomplishment and good to the village where the incident occurred.

    If you would like to better understand a missionaries life, how they feel, their hopes, their struggles, adversities, prayers, and lessons learned throughout their journeys, this book is for you. It is encouraging, uplifting, educational, and spiritual. These people share their real stories with you. These misionaries are the "Voices of the Faithful", as the title proclaims.

    Voices of the Faithful book 2

    This second book by Kim P. Davis and Beth Moore is called Voices of the Faithful 2. It is a 366 page daily devotional featuring stories of God's faithfulness, written by hundreds of missionaries from around the world. It's a follow-up of the first book which has now sold over 300,000 copies. This book is not written by past missionaries, it is by Christians who are currently serving around the world today.

    Each page begins with a scripture and then you read a devotion written by someone in the field. The devotion is concluded by a prayer that is specifically related to the reading. What a great way to pray for the missionaries and their work; to realize what God is doing around the world through them.

    I would recommend this devotional for anyone that wants to be in prayer for missionaries and maybe for someone who wants to enter the field themselves and to get just a glimpse of what their lives are like through the stories.

    Inspiring!

    This book features daily entries written by missionary woman in their struggles, joys, and inspirations of every day life. When reading through this devotional book, you'll find numerous sections each month that deal with specific topics such as the "Lesson's From The Young" which is section for September and one of my favorite throughout the book.

    Each of the stories you'll find have specific title, an entry, which is then followed by a prayer. This is just enough to get you going through out your day. I found myself after reading one of the entries for September ( the 12th) pondering it, and taking the verse mentioned as well as the life lesson to heart ( may we all be bold! Mathew 18:3-4)).

    I think this book would make a great devotional for someone in the mission field or someone that may be considering it. Five stars!

    Voices of the Faithful Book 2

    The latest book for review is Voices of the Faithful Book 2 by Kim P. Davis and Beth Moore. This one year devotional brings encouragement and insight to women from women around the world. Each month focuses on a different aspect of Christian living from the unique perspective of women on the mission field. Some of the topics include: Prayer, the Priority, God, Our Loving Father, Divine Appointments, Lessons from the Young, Lost and Found, Making Him Known, and more.


    The drawing card for me on this book was the fact that the contributors were women in the mission field. I love reading personal testimonies from people who are doing the work of ministry. Their zeal for the Lord and their work comes through in their writing. I also appreciate their dedication as many on in countries resistant to the Gospel. The varied voices in each days reading made them both interesting and personal. I think this devotional is great for personal devotions as well as a tool that can be used in women's ministry groups (i.e. MOPS, women's Bible study, or small groups.)
