About the Book


Book: 21 Days of Grace
Author: Compiled by Kathy Ide
Genre: Devotional
Release Date: March 24, 2015

Love fiction? Looking for a devotional? Check out 21 DAYS OF GRACE, book one in the Fiction Lover’s Devotional series (published by BroadStreet Publishing Group). Fictional stories followed by brief life applications written by best-selling Christian novelists and debut authors, including Angela Hunt, Cindy Woodsmall, and Deborah Raney. Great for individual or group study.

My Thoughts:

21 Days of Grace is another unique devotional that I have read this year.  It is different in that it expresses truth through fiction.  There are 21 stories written all by different authors so not only do you get a thought provoking read, but you also get a sample of each authors’ writing.  Most of the authors I had not read before but there were a handful that I had and it was pleasure to read them again. 

The book is set up with the story, then we are given a life application, and last but not least we are given the author’s information.  The stories are not long at all and I read most in less than 7-10 minutes. The book is very pretty with bright, vibrant colors and adorned with a butterfly.  There is also a butterfly motif that is sprinkled throughout the book that I think makes this book even more special.  What can I say; I like butterflies as they make me think of spring.

I think this is a nice little collection of stories and a unique enough devotional that would make a nice gift especially for readers.

I received a copy of this book for free.  I was not required to give a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.

Guest Post from Kathy Ide

I’ve always loved Christian fiction, and I’ve seen the power of fiction to touch hearts and change lives, both firsthand and hearing about the experiences of others. But you know, in my quiet times with the Lord, reading a chapter from a novel just doesn’t seem quite appropriate. So a devotional with short fiction stories seemed like a great solution. And you can take these purse-sized devotionals wherever you go, to read when you have a few minutes of down time. It’s a great way to get “inspiration on the go.” And they make fantastic gifts for friends and loved ones.
