I got this book because I thought it was interesting to combine silly and quirky questions with a daily devotional. Generally, when you think of a devotional it’s always “serious”. This book takes a different approach and I kind of like it.
Each day starts out with an interesting question. These are questions such as “if whenever you saw someone do something good or bad, you were held responsible for it. How would that change the way you live?” or “If you had a robot who looked and acted like anyone you chose. Who would you choose?” Then it generally asks a secondary question to take it one level deeper like “What if the robot wasn’t completely loyal to you?”
Some of the questions are obviously deeper and more sincere than others, but they are all good at making you take a moment and think about things. My 5-year-old daughter absolutely loved the questions. There was one evening we just read through a lot of the questions together because she enjoyed thinking and answering them. It’s also always enjoyable to hear your 5 year old explain what a planet would look like if they were the ones that created it.
After you spend a little time thinking about the quirky question it moves into what the author calls the “Read It”. In this section you actually get into the devotional part of the book. Here you get to read the scripture and then there a story related to the scripture. I have found this section to be at an okay level of depth. You can obviously go deeper in your study of the passages; however, the level at which the devotional is written works well for a family environment.
The next section is “There is Hope” where there is generally a one line inspirational related quote to go with the days reading. Then to finish it all off there is another “what if” type question at the bottom so you can leave your devotional time pondering what you just read as you go throughout your day.
