The Once-A-Day Devotional for Teens cuts straight to the the heart and meaning of Scripture. As part of Zondervan's popular Once-A-Day line, the book provides a plan to read the complete Bible in a year, with each day offering right-sized chunks from the Old Testament, New Testament, and either Psalms or Proverbs.
My goal in this book was to take one of those daily readings and dig in. Instead of extended stories, hooks, and illustrations--I've written plenty of those in earlier books like Total Devotion--I go straight for what a passage means and how it applies to real life.
I just received preview copies, so look for the book to release in early October 2012. Here's a sample of what you can expect.
The devotional can be used alongside The Once-A-Day Bible for Teens, which arranges the plan's Scripture readings in easy day-by-day order. I worked on that project as well, writing short recaps that explain the gist of the day's readings. Expect that in early October too.
READ it. PRAY it. LIVE it. REPEAT.
