90 Days of God's Goodness by Randy Alcorn

This is the first book I have read by Randy Alcorn. I was excited to recieve it because I have heard good things about his books. "90 Days of God's Goodness" is a devotional book reflecting on God's ultimate Goodness in spite of the hardships and trials we go through in life.
I couldn't help comparing this book to another devotional book I have been reading. That particular book is a collection of stories with a short Bible verse tacked on to the end. "90 Days" is not that kind of devotional book. Each section starts off with a good portion of Scripture; just reading this gives you peace in your heart. Following this is a related passage, sometimes from the author's life, most times from others who have faced some sort of adversity in their lives. Romans 8:28 NIV, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." This verse is mention frequently and seems to be the underlying theme of the book. All passages affirm god's goodness and His love for us. the author often reminds us we are never alone in our suffering and to remember the suffering of Christ on our behalf.
This book was provided by Waterbrook Multnomah in exchnge for a fair and unbiased review.
