The 20-Something Daily Devotion  Jun 6, 2010
Faithbook of Jesus is a A one-year devotion written by Renee Johnson who is passionate about discipleship, especially for those who are 20-something, her own generation. The book is not written to be a bible study, or a theological based teaching of the bible but rather a 20-something woman sharing her walk with Christ. Seeking to inspire others to seek a closer relationship with God.

She is simply being honest in sharing what she learned in her daily walk, her seeking of God in her daily devotions. Renee is eager to connect with others in their faith journey with God.

I have followed Renee for a couple of years on twitter and can tell you she is sincere in her desire to inspire others to seek the Lord and connect with God daily. She has a great passion to see other draw close to God. She has a real life filled with up's and downs and is very honest in her sharing of relationship with God.

If you are a 20-somethings you can get some inspiration from reading this book, see a real persons dealing with life with God. Each day is a day from her life and the issues and struggles she was encountering and how she heard God in the mist of them.

Two unique feature is at the bottom of each page Renee shares others one sentence contribution to the subject or verse. And she ask her readers to interact with her and others on her website, to enter into the conservation of the days devotion, to add their voice to the conversation, what God is saying to them.

Renee has a wonderful personality and love for others, and for a first time writer in her 20's she has done a great job. If you are in the targeted age group of this book and are seeking a daily devotional, pick up a copy.

Charming!  May 24, 2010
Faithbook of Jesus, Renee Johnson

Renee Johnson has created a charming collection of demi-devotionals. The daily readings are geared towards a twenty-something audience, yet have truths for any reader. Allusions to literary pieces, movies, quotes, and culture, takes the biblical subject at hand, and assists the reader in making real-life connections.

This is a perfect gift for a twenty-someone at any place in their walk. The truths are solid, and the emphasis on understanding God for a deeper relationship in Him is the focus. Not a churchy bone in the book.

Experience Renee's humor, clever connections, and her love for growing others in the Lord through Faithbook of Jesus.
 
Connecting with the "Twenty-something" Generation  May 16, 2010
Over the years, I have read many devotionals spanning the spectrum from Oswald Chamber's classic My Utmost for His Highest , to the small quarterly devotionals that can be picked up at almost any church published by Radio Bible Ministries. Most devotionals fit a relatively standard format of daily one page readings. Usually these readings are based on some section of scripture, and more often than not it rests on one verse. Faithbook of Jesus by Renee Johnson is no different.

Faithbook.. is a fifty-two week, daily devotional that is specifically geared towards a "twenty-something" audience. As such, most of Miss Johnson's devotions are based around things that most young adults would be dealing with in this new millennium. Originally written for her blog, these devotionals have been edited and put in book form. She deals with issues that run the gamut from pre-marital sex to how we deal with the culture around us.

As I stated before, the format of the devotionals is nothing new. There is a pithy title at the top of the page, a verse to draw inspiration from, the devotional (consisting of 3-4 paragraphs), and then an insight at the bottom of the page. The insight is meant to either get people to dig deeper or call people into action.

What is unique about the format are a few new features at the bottom of the page. Not only does Renee offer insight, but she also has taken quotes from people that have posted to her website and used them to enhance the devotional. She also has added little prayers where she addresses Jesus with different names such as "Design-Label Jesus", or "Thirst-Quenching Jesus". Granted some of these names are little distracting and kind of hokey, but all in all they help the reader see that Jesus is more than one dimensional.

My favorite feature is the call to interact and be part of the "community". At the end of each devotional, Renee asks a question and then invites the reader to respond on her website. In this post-modern culture, this is what people are looking for. We just don't want to read someone's idea of something, we want to interact with them and share our ideas as well.

The devotions themselves are at times really good and at times rather quaint and full of bubble gum. The moments that are the most brilliant and bright are the ones in which Renee gets very personal with her struggles to stay pure and to stay satisfied in her singleness. It is these sections that draw the reader in the most, connecting with them on a level other devotionals don't.

Faithbook of Jesus is not for everyone. But the target audience will most likely receive it with open arms. The twenty-something age group is a market that has not been targeted effectively by this type of genre. Although there is room for improvement, Faithbook does connect on many levels and is worth checking out. Renee Johnson is a bright light in the next generation of Christian authors.
 
Eh.  Apr 17, 2010
I feel like the people who have been reviewing this aren't from the target audience. I'm about to turn 25 and this book made me roll my eyes way more than any other devotional I have ever read. At one point, she makes the argument that being angry is a sin. Jesus got angry. Is she saying he sinned? Scripture also says "In your anger, do not sin," which is saying that it is possible to be angry without sinning. There are also a lot of hokey devotions about how you shouldn't ever be negative and being positive positive positive is the only way for a Christian.

Maybe I'm just jaded with Christianity, especially Christian literature, and especially Christian literature that is supposed to be geared towards my generation. I'm sure this would speak to someone who has been within the white, middle-class Evangelical bubble their whole lives, but for people like me who strive to be intellectuals and free thinkers while still being Christian, it isn't worth the money.

Oh, one thing I loved: this book has the softest cover of any book I have ever touched.

Wonderful Devotional  Apr 15, 2010
I recently had the chance to review another book from Navpress publishers entitled Faithbook of Jesus. It is a daily devotional written by a woman in her twenties and it is specifically designed for people in their twenties. I must say that the devotionals, yet short, are very powerful to me. The bible verses tie in perfectly with the message and I was impressed. This book is perfect for people who sometimes need a little uplifting during their busy lives. The messages make you think long and hard about your life and what you can do to glorify Jesus better. I enjoyed it so much that I actually passed down my copy of the book to my husband to read because he too wanted to read more of the passages. This is a must read for all who love daily devotionals. I give it 5 stars!
