Day by Day Through the Gospel of John: 365 Timeless Devotions from Classic Writers is a great book to discover authors that you may have never read, or revisit those who have been favorites for years. Traveling through the gospel of John, each day has a devotion from important voices from the past like Charles Spurgeon, Alexander Whyte, Alexander McLaren, R.A Torrey, Andrew Murray and many more. 

The book opens with a section dedicated to brief biographies of the contributors, where you might just find people you’ve never heard of-I did! Beginning in John 1:1, each day begins with a scripture and one page reading by a different author. While the book moves through all of the gospel, some passages have more than one day devoted to it by multiple authors, and the insights each one brings was helpful to understanding the passage. 

Good Bible teaching and writing never lose its relevancy, and this book doesn’t disappoint.  The applications given in these devotions are just as practical as they were when they were first written. This would make a great companion to a study or devotional reading of John. Lightly edited, the language is readable and easily understood, making it a great family devotion to go through if you have elementary age kids or older. 

What would God do in your life and family if you spent a year in the gospel of John? You can discover that by taking a walk Day by Day Through the Gospel of John: 365 Timeless Devotions from Classic Writers.
