Morning Manna~Book Review


A couple of months ago I received a devotional to review titled Morning Manna by R. Chris Hanks. This is a one page a day devotional that takes you through the Bible in one year.

From the Publisher

In this simple 365-day devotional, Pastor R. Christ Hanks chooses stand out scripture and shares truths in a way that will help you to fully understand and absorb them each day.

My Thoughts

It has been a long time since I have used a daily devotional, other than my Bible.  Morning Manna looked as though it would be a great devotional to go along with my daily Bible reading.  I was not disappointed. This book takes you through the entire Bible in one year. 

Each devotion is one page in length. Day one starts on January 1st  with Genesis and goes through December 31st, day 365 ending at the end of the book of Revelation.  Approximately 3-4 chapters of the Bible are covered each day. This devotion does not hop around the Bible as many devotionals do.

Each day starts with a Daily Bible Reading. On January 1st you would read Genesis chapters 1-3. After you read those chapters in your Bible you are given Today’s Verse a verse to ponder, memorize or pray about. Finally you come to the study portion of the devotion.

Pastor Hanks provides a rich and meaty Biblical lesson for each portion of the Bible you are reading on any particular day.

In the back of the book you will find an index of topics for quick reference on a particular topic.

This devotional is very easy to read and written in an easy to understand format. You may think that only having one page per day this devotional may not have much to it. Let me assure you that it is very in-depth and will add a deeper meaning to your daily walk with the Lord.   It is aptly titled as it is truly Morning Manna to our spiritual journey.

I want to add that you do not have to wait until January 1st to start this book. I started well after the new year and have not felt it was a problem.

I highly recommend this devotional. You will not be disappointed, whether you are a new Christian just starting your faith journey or have been a Christian for many years. This is a wonderful book!

disclosure: I was given a copy of Morning Manna for review purposes as a reviewer for Bring It On Communications. No other compensation was received. All opinions in this post and on this blog are my own.
