"Gospel of John: The Daily Devotional Series" by Kristi Burchfiel is a concise, easy to understand interpretation of one of the most important and popular books of the Bible. One can wake up each day to a new truth and focus on it. Each day’s devotional message focuses on one verse, the meaning in that verse, and a response to pray back to God, starting with a brief interesting introduction about the “sons of thunder” and the transformation of John to the “disciple whom Jesus loved.” A must read for those who wish to know the message of the Bible and learn more about Jesus Christ in an easy, uncomplicated way.

It was a delight for me to come across a book that was so easy to understand and follow. I enjoyed the light feel of the book and the fact that, for once, the verses from the Bible really made sense to me. My personal favorite to meditate upon was chapter 21 of the book that talks about how we should focus on God’s plan for our lives instead of getting distracted by what others are up to. Keeping Christ and his teachings as the center of our lives and following the path chosen by him for us, while trusting his plans for us, will smooth out our lives and help us to lead a joyous and blessed life. A must read for those who wish to focus on Christ’s life in a simple and easy way.
