Moments of Truth by John MacArthur

Moments of Truth

Unleashing God's Word One Day at a Time

John MacArthur

Thomas Nelson Publishers

The Bible, our one source of truth, is highlighted here in daily readings centered around Biblical truths. John MacArthur,has compiled daily readings that are composed of a Bible verse, an excerpt from one of his many books explaining the truth of God's Word, and a question to get you to think about God's Word. It is divided into days and months of the year. Each month centers around a particular themes, such as beginnings, love, family, Jesus' birth and life, and more.

Unlike many daily devotionals, MacArthur creates a devotional that makes you think while speaking God's truth about a variety of subjects. He doesn't skirt issues, nor does he pick easy topics that everyone else picks. Each morsel of Biblical truth he presents is poignant and thought provoking.

I really liked that he used compiled excerpts from his various books. I had not read any of them, and it gave me a chance to see a survey of his work. I also liked that MacArthur speaks candidly about God's Word. He doesn't water the truths down, but speaks it out boldly. I also liked the daily format. It works great for individuals and groups or when you are short on time.

Now, if you are looking for a feel good book, that is emotionally stimulating, then this devotional is not for you, but if you want sound doctrine and Biblical truth, then this book will help guide you into God's Word well.

I received this book through's book reviewer program and all opinions are my own.
