This book contains sermonettes from a verse selected from the Scripture reading of each day. The sermonette devotionals in this book are not "feel-good" sentimentalism, but they are expository studies of the Scriptures. They are generally outlined and alliterated in the typical writing style of the author. While the sermonettes are primarily intended to be instructional and inspirational for one's daily Bible reading, they are also helpful as sermon starters and aids for those giving a devotional. A valuable index of texts is located at the end of this book.
