Dr. Rubel Shelly has served as a minister for the Woodmont Hills church in Nashville for twenty years. He holds a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University and has taught at David Lipscomb University and Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.
He is a known community leader, serving with groups such as the AIDS Education Committee of the American Red Cross and the Metro Public Schools, and is the author of over twenty books, two of which are The Names of Jesus, and What Would Jesus Do Today? Shelly is widely published in religious journals and co-edits Wineskins magazine. He and his wonderful wife, Myra, make their home in Nashville, TN.
After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior's voice and begin listening for what He was saying. So with pen in hand, she embarked on a journey that forever changed her—and many others around the world.
In these powerful pages are the words and Scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. Words of reassurance, comfort, and hope. Words that have made her increasingly aware of His presence and allowed her to enjoy His peace.
Jesus is calling out to you in the same way. Maybe you share the author’s need for a great sense of “God with you”. Or perhaps Jesus seems distant without you knowing why. Or maybe you have wandered farther from Him that you ever imagined you would. Here is a year’s worth of daily readings from Young’s journals to bring you closer to Christ and move your time with Him from monologue to a dialogue.
Each day is written as if Jesus Himself were speaking to you. Because He is. Do you hear Him calling?
