Read full description of the books Daily Readings from Your Best Life Now: 90 Devotions for Living at Your Full Potential:Joel's book contains 90 devotionals of about three to five pages in length. I found the devotionals useful, but knowing that he comes from a mega church background, I felt I wasn't going to get real in-depth devotionals concentrating on passages from the Bible. Bible passages were included each day, but sometimes I had trouble seeing the connection between the passage for the day and the devotional he was including with it. At the end of each devotional, there is a prayer. However, I'm not sure if this was on purpose or not, but none of the prayers ended in "Amen". Maybe it was intentional so that we could continue praying? Some have said that his theology is flawed. I did see one flaw that sticks out to me every time I see it (no matter who says it). Near the end of the book he sites 1 Corinthians 10:13. People often confuse this verse with what we sometime hear people say: "God will never give you more than you can handle." Joel's devotion on "Choose to Be Happy Today" cites this verse. Folks, the phrase "God will never give you more than you can handle" is NOT true. It's not biblical. Look at the verse from 1 Corinthians. The verse is specifically talking about temptation..."No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." (1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV) So, I wish that Joel wouldn't have put that in his book...because it just ain't true. For these reasons, I gave this book 3 of 5 stars.
