The Alabaster Jar


Devotionals are plentiful on bookshelves, and not every book will appeal to every woman. Indeed, in previous columns, I have clearly stated my dissatisfaction with several such books.

Recently, I received a request to review a new devotional that is published by the White Cottage Publishing Company. Written by Anna Alden-Tirrill, the book draws on the poetry and quotes of famous Christian women to provide encouragement for the reader.

The Alabaster Jar: "Deep Calls Unto Deep" Devotions for Women is broken down into eighteen chapters. While it is lengthy, it is not long enough to be used as a year's daily devotional. Unlike some other devotionals, the book lacks any lined spaces to record notes and thoughts; however, the type setting does leave enough to record thoughts in the margins. It also does not contain a section of questions at the end of devotionals and chapters. Unless these are absolute deal breakers for you, I would encourage you to consider The Alabaster Jar.

Despite the things she did not include, Anna Alden-Tirrill got it right. Beginning with scripture and writings that introduce and explain finding your "Secret Place" for prayer and communion with God, the book walks a woman through practicing the presence of God through prayer, repentance, worship and gratitude as well as various issues of faith, trust, and belief. Unlike most books that merely include the required bibliography for quotes and works used, Alden-Tirrill provides an Appendix that provides brief information on each woman of faith that the book references. Additional appendix entries provide information on ordering the book and also one that walks a woman through the prayer of salvation.

This book is available from online retailers such as www.amazon.com
