Book Review: Praying the Attributes of God

Praying the Attributes of God could easily be called Allowing the Attributes of God to Lead You into Worship. That’s exactly what this book does—beautifully! Author Ann Spangler has chosen 17 of the characteristics of God identified in the Bible and written five devotionals for each. Readers get to reflect on one attribute per week.

On Mondays, Spangler introduces the attribute of the week, defining and exploring biblical, traditional, and cultural usage of the term. For Tuesdays through Thursdays, she gives Bible verses to reflect on, ideas for prayer (including praises, thanksgiving, confession, and petition), and a simple devotional thought for each day. On Fridays, Spangler summarizes lessons for the week and offers more Scripture to consider, including a list of additional verses readers can look up on their own. These are especially helpful for those who want to continue their study through the weekend.

I appreciated the whole package and plan to do this devotional study again in the future. If ever you just want to take some time to prayerfully reflect on Who God Is, What He does, and what that means for you, this book can help with that endeavor. I do recommend this one.

No one sent this book to me to review. I earned my copy through Tyndale Rewards and am choosing to review it for credit in Tyndale’s Summer Reading Program.
