The Inside Scoop on God, by Deborah Ann Erdmann, is a Christian devotional with a few humorous stories to accompany the scripture-based messages. Erdmann starts off with an introduction that sets the pace for the devotional; she knows her husband, a real relationship - not just things she has heard, she actually knows him. If she can get to know her husband that way, can she get to know God that way? What follows this personal introduction is a series of daily devotions that are backed by scripture and personal experiences. Erdmann applies deeper level thinking that goes beyond the typical study topics or devotions; the most studious Christians will find themselves expanding their thinking.

Two things stood out to me immediately. First, Deborah Ann Erdmann makes a personal connection with what she is saying, so there is an immediate sense of teaching or sharing, rather than being talked at. Second, the devotions are scripture-based, everything you read is founded on scripture and not just the author’s thoughts or opinions. I was impressed by The Inside Scoop on God; it was whimsical and anointed - it got me smiling and it got me thinking! I enjoyed the quotes from scripture, and the famous historical quotes, as well as comic-like images that began each chapter or devotion. Erdmann has done an excellent job of creating a unique and much-needed devotional after what is clearly years of study and preparation. Nice work!
