Book Review: Daily Guideposts 2011


This is the 35th year of publication for Daily Guideposts, a daily devotional that has sold more than 20 million copies since it debuted in 1975. That first book was written by one individual, Fred Bauer, as a collection of daily prayers and stories for year-round spiritual growth. The most recent edition, Daily Guideposts: 2011 has contributions from more than 50 writers.

Each page features a short scripture reading followed by a personal story related to it. At the end of each month, there is space for readers to write down their blessings so they will become more mindful of all they have to be thankful for in their lives.

I shared my copy of Daily Guideposts: 2011 with my mother, who has read many daily devotional books over the years. She had this to say:
I've always had some sort of daily devotional to reflect on during the day, and this one seems to be written well and in simple terms that are easy to carry with you. It's nice because the writers are reflecting on the scripture and heping you realize how it does carry through to this day and age ~ and even to events in your own life.
For more information, you can visit the Daily Guideposts website.

This review was written based on a copy of Daily Guideposts: 2011 that I received from Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists in exchange for an honest review.
