{Moments of Truth by: John MacArthur}

Moments of Truth by John MacArthur is a true devotional. It is so inspirational and is simple to read (in a good way). I have read through this book and found out so many wonderful things I didn't know about myself before. It caused me to take a look at the life I am living and evaluate the situations as Jesus would. Each day you will open with a verse from the Bible. Next, there are 2-3 paragraphs of a story that goes along with the Bible verse. Some of these stories are personal and some come from various books in the Christian realm. At the end, there is a critical thinking question pertaining to the devotional for the day.

Each month is also divided into a different subject. For instance, January is "Beginnings", February is "Love", March is "The Cross and Easter", and my favorite, June is "Marriage". John MacArthur really does a great job with each of these special devotionals. You can tell he took a lot of time and prayer on each day so that you will focus on Christ to begin your day (if that's when you do your devotions).

"Day by day, MacArthur quotes Scripture and helps us apply it to our lives with eye-opening lessons and probing questions that are relevant to the season." (quote from back of book).

I would recommend this for anyone to do use. A family could even use this for "family devotions" after dinner each night. The reason I say that is because there is a question at the end of each day to get your mind thinking about what was read. Each family member could answer with their own personal twist. If family devotions isn't your thing, then do them privately. Listen to what God has to say to you. I am truly blessed to have had the opportunity to review this book.

God Bless,
