Take Time to Be Holy Book Review

Take Time to Be Holy by Samuel Logan Brengle, edited by Bob Hostetler
Take Time to Be Holy: 365 Daily Inspirations to Bring You Closer to God  -     By: Bob Hostetler, Samuel Logan Brengle

You may know "Take time to be holy" as the first line of a familiar hymn.  This was my thought when I first saw the title of this devotional book.  As we seek a life of holiness, we are seeking to be ever closer to God. This book contains devotionals for each day of the year.  Each day begins with a scripture and then has a short writing by Brengle.

Samuel Logan Brengle was born in 1860 and received Christ as a teenager.  He was a preacher and an officer in the Salvation Army.  His preaching and writing built upon teachings of holiness by John Wesley and others.  "Take Time To Be Holy" is a compilation of works from Brengle's writings, which have been edited for length and compiled into this devotional book.

This compact book with a padded cover is convenient to take with you or to remain in your study area.  It would make a great gift for someone or for yourself if you are looking for something to study in the new year.  I enjoyed reading the devotionals.  In the front of the book, Hostetler wrote about the life of Brengle and I found this most interesting.

I receive this book from Tyndale in exchange for a fair and honest review.
