Discover how to cultivate an enduring faith, no matter what trials or hardships you are going through. Learn from the examples of the men and women listed in Hebrews 11—those recognized for holding fast to God’s promises despite living in a world of not-yets, what-ifs, and in-betweens. This 40-day devotional has uplifting readings, guided journaling exercises, blessings, and prayers to help you find a safe place during heartache, loss, or loneliness.

I'm not normally a fan of devotionals, however, this one sounded very interesting so I thought I would give it a go. Each day was started with one verse from Hebrews 11 and accompanied by a short devotional breaking down what that verse was about and how it can apply to our daily lives. There were guided prayers at the beginning and end of each devotional as well as an attached blessing from the author. After each reading were guided questions for reflecting what was read and how to apply faith in your struggles and strongholds. This devotional was sprinkled with scripture throughout apart from the daily verse from Hebrews, which encouraged readers to dig deeper into their bibles. Although any Christian could benefit from strengthening their faith, I feel this would be most beneficial to those who are new in their walk with the Lord.
Thank you NetGalley, and The Daily Bread for the opportunity to read and review this advanced copy.
Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for letting me review this book. Each chapter focuses on a certain hero of the Bible-Moses,David,etc…. Each chapter has several verses along with the author’s short blurb under each chapter title. I like that the author gives questions to ponder over along with space to write your thoughts out. There’s also a blessing at the end of each chapter. Each chapter is only a few pages in length.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the depth of it and the way that it was put together with prayers, reflections, and blessings. Excellent book. Highly recommend.
Thank you NetGalley for allowing me the opportunity to review this title and providing me with a free eBook to do so.
I enjoyed this devotional, but I am not big on devotionals. I enjoyed the readings through Hebrew and I think this would be a great gift for a newer Christian to hopefully encourage them to dig deeper into the Bible.
REVIEW “BY FAITH” by Chris Morris
Hebrews Eleven is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible regarding the ‘dance of faith,’ receiving, or not yet receiving, the things promised by God. Chris Morris has captured the essence of this chapter and, in everyday language, has made the journeys of Biblical heroes of faith accessible to the modern generation. Each chapter explores the mentioned 'heroes', their interactions with God, and their journey of faith or doubt. The chapter on Jacob's blessing motivated the author to bless others, and I found it touching how he included a blessing for the readers at the end of each chapter.
I appreciated the book's accessible writing style, which began with relevant biblical passages for meditation and then provided explanations. At the end were questions and suggestions to journal for our current circumstances or walk. There was space to journal, a prayer, and a blessing.
This book is a lovely gift to either yourself or someone you would like to encourage in their faith walk, helping you to hold the paradox of living in faith, but not yet receiving the promise.
