Review: Total Devotion

Total Devotion: 365 Days to Hang Tight with JesusTotal Devotion: 365 Days to Hang Tight with Jesus by Kevin Johnson

Total Devotion is geared toward young adults and their faith struggles and growth. I may not be in high school, but the passages chosen and the lessons shared are applicable to Christians whatever their age. The book was originally published in 2004, so there are a couple technical advances, but some life lessons never change throughout history. Replace the VCR with a DVD or Blu-ray player as you read and focus on connecting the passage to your daily life.

Daily devotions include a title, opening paragraph describing a situation, passage, and closing remarks that include Bible references to link the situation(s) to the text read. The year is broken down into several topics including faith basics, obedience, prayer, trust, popularity, family, guy-girl stuff, stamina and more for a total of 26 different themes.
