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).

My Review

21 Days of Grace was a new and delightful experience for me. When I heard it was a devotional, I had expectations, but these authors blew that out of the water. I have never seen fiction so closely tied to themes of the Bible to encourage in our Christian walk. Each one was a fictional story with a fully Biblical purpose for the day. Each story was completely unique and offered me new encouragement or a new challenge in my Christian walk. It was very thought provoking and stirred my soul for sure. To see all these authors with different backgrounds and different styles come together to piece this devotional together was a masterpiece indeed. You will not be disappointed I can assure you. No matter what type of Christian fiction you prefer, there is something to be enjoyed and learned from in this book. Each story is excellently written and while short, very impactful. Each one includes Bible references for foundation and application for that in the real world. I have to admit I was skeptical when hearing that fiction was going to be put into a devotional, but I ended up being highly blessed by reading. Anyone that picks up this book can and will enjoy it.

I received this book for free and all opinions 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.
