Dungy has written a devotional book, “The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge.” I think that this would be a great book for any sports fan, and that reading a page each day would be an excellent 2012 New Year’s resolution.
Each day’s reading presents a brief devotional on one of 7 topics: core, family, friends, potential, mission, influence, and faith. The daily devotional ends with a challenge — a way of putting the day’s lesson into practice.
This isn’t the type of devotional book I’d normally pick up — I’m more of a “Streams in the Desert” or “My Utmost for His Highest” girl — but I recognize that not everyone is. I see this being a great book for someone looking for light readings, maybe someone (guys in particular) who doesn’t normally read devotionals or even go to church. Many of the readings have a sports focus, which I think would appeal to men.
I gave a copy of this book to my dad for Christmas. Do you know someone who would appreciate a daily Biblical challenge from a godly man? If so, you’re in luck. Tyndale has provided me with a certificate good for a free copy of the book. You can redeem the coupon at any local Christian bookstore (if none is available, you can mail the certificate to Tyndale and they’ll send you the book).
Enter by leaving a comment on this post. For an extra entry, “like” my Facebook page. Enter by January 8 and I’ll choose a winner the 9th so you can get the book by just a couple of months into the year.
Here’s wishing each of you an uncommonly good year!
Thanks to Tyndale for the opportunity to review this book.
