Daily Devotionals – Take Your Pick!

Published on February 15, 2017 by Joshua R Monroe


Daily Devotionals can be a wonderful aid in pursuing God. Not all devotionals are created equal, however, so here are some that have caught my eye and seem most promising.

Of course Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening (available also in Kindle) is the long-time standard. His Faith’s Checkbook (Kindle) is as good, even if it hasn’t caught as much notice. And we really should mention C.H. Spurgeon’s Prayers (Kindle) while we’re at it too – really rich.

Our favorite is D.A. Carson’s For the Love of God (vol.1 and vol.2) (also in Kindle, vol.1 and vol.2). Here is a devotional that draws attention to whole chapters of the Bible at a time, bringing learning and devotional warmth together. Carson mentioned to me that he wants to do another two volumes to complete this series, but that was several years ago! We’ll see!

Here’s one from the ESV Study Bible (and in Kindle) that seems to do something similar and looks to be very good.
And this one (and Kindle) from Martyn Lloyd-Jones that should be good.
This daily devotional (and Kindle) taken from the works of Martin Luther.

Here are some daily devotionals taken from the works of John Calvin:

Heart Aflame: Daily Readings from John Calvin on the Psalms

365 Days with Calvin

Day By Day with John Calvin: Selected Readings for Daily Reflection

Coffee with Calvin: Daily Devotions

Lifting Our Hearts: 150 Selected Prayers from John Calvin (and in Kindle)

Here are some daily devotionals taken from the Puritans:

Day By Day with the English Puritans

The Puritans Day by Day (Brand new!)

Voices from the Past, vol.1 (see here also)

Voices from the Past, vol.2  (Brand new!)

The Puritans: Daily Readings (and Kindle)

Here are some Puritan devotionals available for Kindle, just 99 cents.

50 Days with Thomas Manton in James

60 Days with John Owen on Hebrews

31 Days with Samuel Rutherford

Here’s one (and Kindle) from Matthew Henry.
This one is for husbands and wives, from Robert Plummer and Matthew Haste.
This one provides daily devotional readings from the Hebrew Bible.
This book on the Psalms from Alec Motyer is not a devotional book as such, but it is well suited for daily use.
Here’s one for mothers, from Melissa Kruger
And this one from John Piper is for Christmas time.

These all look great – have fun deciding! ☺
