This daily devotional book by Charles Stanley should be kept next to your Bible. In fact, it’s a sturdy hardback probably about the same size as my Bible.

Each day’s devotion begins with a short passage to read from the Bible. A key verse follows that highlights the main idea for the day.

Then comes half to three-quarter page of instructions from Charles Stanley. His writing is to the point, easy to read, yet profound; I’ve always enjoyed his books. The day’s devotion ends with a one to two line prayer.

I Lift Up My Soul is similar to any other daily devotional guide. As with any daily devotional guide, it’s an aid to maintaining a disciplined quiet time in God’s Word but does not give much depth of Bible study. 

Disclosure:  Thomas Nelson provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for this review. Opinions are entirely my own.
