A Spectacle of Glory: God’s Light Shining Through Me Every Day by Joni Eareckson Tada with Larry Libby. Published by Zondervan
Joni Eareckson Tada has penned a devotional along with Larry Libby. A Spectacle of Glory, God’s Light Shining through Me Every Day, is published by Zondervan.
Tada, who is a well know author, artist, and speaker, has shared her faith for many years, focusing on God working in her life as a quadriplegic.
A Spectacle of Glory is a devotional that offers a daily mini study of scripture, based on Tada’s observations and memories of her life, before and since the diving accident in 1967 that left her paralyzed from the shoulders down.
If you’re looking for an in-depth study of God’s Word, then this isn’t the devotional for you. If you are looking for a way to connect scripture to your everyday life, then you will be pleased with this offering.
If you are not familiar with Tada’s work, then you might be surprised at the humor and the pure love of life that these short, daily examples of God’s Light Shining Through, provide. Whether she is reflecting on emotional struggles or memories of life as a child, the humility and total dependence on God shines through.
A big plus at the end of each day’s entry is a personal prayer that demonstrates her transparency, and allows the reader to pray along if similar issues are at hand in their lives.
Not everyone enjoys daily devotionals, but even if you struggle with them, each day’s entry is a doable length. For those who love devotionals, you will find this offering from Tada and Libby a treasure.
