I really like the song Redeemed and I enjoy Big Daddy Weave’s other songs so when I had the chance to get the book that goes along with this song I knew I had to get it to review. The book is a short 240 pages and is a thirty day devotional about what it means to be redeemed through Christ’s blood, covering such areas like: Redeemed from the Shame, Redeemed and at Peace, Redeemed by Hope, Redeemed and Thankful and more gives you a new look on what it means to be redeemed. Full of Scripture the readings take less than 5 minutes followed by several Scripture verses and then quotes by godly Christians like Tozer, Spurgeon, Beth Moore and others. After the reading, verses and quotes there is a short prayer you can use, or make up your own as you reflect on the reading and Scripture and there is an area for notes about what you’ve learned or your thoughts.
It’s great for men, women and even older children may find it inspiring and drawing them closer to the Lord. Granted I just read through the book but I can see myself definitely spending more time with it and doing it over the course of a month and really delving into it – as a lot of the subject matter really hits to the heart and mind, the one that got me was the shame chapter. This wasn’t a feel good Christianity, it will make one aware that Christ died for us and He is the only way, so theologically and Scripturally it was quite sound from my reading. I think if your wanting a short devotional then this is a good one – work through it with a spouse or in a group and share what you’ve learned. Also at the end are more Scripture split up according to subjects like anger, gratitude, worry and more to make it easy to find a specific Scripture you may need at a certain time. The devotional does use the KJV, NKJV, NIV, NLT, MSG, NCV, ESV, NASB, and HCSB versions of the Bible – however you can use whichever version you prefer.
