To start off your new year strong, you may consider an excellent new devotional for men by Tony Dungy: The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge. Each day of the year is given a story, primarily sports-related, but with pithy spiritual insights, and (the uncommon part), a key principle to put into action that day.
For example, December 14th (the day I received this copy) includes the text of I John 4:7-8, 12 and a story of Tony’s friend James Brown. “JB believes that every person is a valuable and special child of God. And JB acts like he believes it.” Summarizing, the Uncommon Key recommends “Spend time with the people God brings into your life today….” As you can see, this is a simple and straightforward devotional for men who seek to begin living their faith, or need a basic push in that direction. This will not contain deep theology, only practical living examples. But for most of us, that’s the Jesus we are supposed to be: real.
In that vein, I recommend this devotional, and offer a free copy to the person giving the 5th comment.
