Dr. Catherine Braswell's 52 Weeks of Practical Applications to Biblical Principles guides readers by supplying topics for reflection and prayer that may be applied to their lives. Braswell begins by asking her readers to recommit themselves to God and develop a more open dialog with him. The lessons encourage readers to continue nurturing their relationship with the Lord every week, and examples of prayers and relatable life examples are given for periods of reflection and bonding with God.
Dr. Catherine Braswell's 52 Weeks of Practical Applications to Biblical Principles is full of supporting scripture from the Bible, and the author explains it straightforwardly as she makes suggestions about ways in which readers can use it in prayer and throughout the day. The author has a doctorate and she’s a full-time pastor, so I feel her experience has prepared her to write a book that can impact the daily lives of Christian followers. Some of the material read like a proposed conversation with God, and I valued that portion as I carry on a running dialog with the Lord. The lessons are detailed in bite-sized chunks that will be easily digested by readers and motivate them to act on the material by remembering to live a Christ-centered life. To me, the book is a powerful tool to help readers continue a loving, open relationship with God, and its exercises are valid for much longer than a year of study. I recommend the book to readers of the Christian faith who want to build a deeper connection with God by applying the words of His scripture to daily life.
