A 40-Day Devotional Experience

God's Love Letters To 




 A 40-Day Devotional Experience




Dr. Larry Crabb


Format: E-Book

Vendor: Thomas Nelson

Publication Date: 2011



I chose God's Love Letters To You: A 40-Day Devotional Experience by Dr. Larry Crabb because it was a devotional and available as an e-book. I really liked the idea of Dr. Crabb writing these devotions as if God was speaking to me, little old me. In some ways I would have liked for him to have done a 66 day devotional so he would have used all the books of the Bible.



I can see why he chose 40 days; this made it a shorter devotional and included 20 Old Testament and 20 New Testament books. I feel having written it as if God were actually saying the words to you, will helped you get more out of that day’s devotional. Each devotional starts out with “God says:”.


After reading the devotional for each day is a section called Take A Moment To Reflect.  There are 3-4 ideas given to you to help you reflect deeper into that day’s devotion. That is followed with Take A Moment To Pray. A short pray is given for you to read. To me this gives you a start on what to pray to God that day about how you can use what you learned in that devotional.

These 40 devotionals are just enough for you to glimpse how the 40 books of the Bible weaves together God’s Story.

God’s Love Letters to You is based on Dr. Crabb’s book 66 Love Letters: A Conversation with God That Invites You into His Story. I have not read his book but just might have to get it so I can read it also.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. A book review is also posted at and I will be recommending this devotional to my friends.
