Bread for Adversity Review
For years, artists have produced Indie films and music. Avenues such Smashwords.com and Amazon.com's CreateSpace have now made it possible for author's and wanna-be writers everywhere to be able to produce Indie books. Richard Toney has produced such a book.
Bread for Adversity: 30 Days Fuel for Faith is a concise devotional. The online version being a concise fifty eight pages. The book is structured much like any other devotional. It presents a different thought to be meditated upon for each of thirty days. Beginning with the title and a Bible verse, Toney next centers a key thought. These are followed by a few paragraphs of Toney's teaching...including more relevant Bible verses. It is how Toney has chosen to reinforce the teaching and end each day's devotion that sets it apart. Other devotionals often present a short story and Bible verse without reinforcing the key point to be learned. In Bread for Adversity, however, there are two additional sections...the first, A New Profession followed by the second, The Promise. A New Profession summarizes the lesson to be taken away, and The Promise presents the key Bible verse that centers on the lesson. Rounding it all out is a section entitled, Related Thoughts which presents several additional Bible verses to be looked up. This makes the devotional not only appropriate for personal study time, but also useful in group settings.
Richard Toney's devotional is well worth the $1.99 asking price for an e-book. It was refreshing and written in a modern, conversational approach. It was real...not flowery. Check it out online at amazon.com or smashwords.com.
