The song Redeemed by the popular Christian group Big Daddy Weave has inspired millions. This collection of 30 devotions by songwriter Mike Weaver focuses on redemption, grace, and the healing power of Christ's love. For fans of Big Daddy Weave who have been touched by Redeemed, this book is more than an impulse purchase; it's a must-read.

My take on this book:
A New Year is always the perfect time to begin a new devotional and this year I have been using Redeemed  by Big Daddy Weave. Let me start out by saying that I hadn't heard of the song or the artist before picking up this devotional, instead I found the title of the book spoke to me, after all we are all redeemed by the grace of God. Upon reading the lyrics of the song, which are provided at the beginning of the devotional  I found myself uplifted and inspired and those feelings only intensified as I used this devotional. First a look at the book, there is a presentation page that makes it a wonderful gift, and the size is just perfect for fitting into a purse making it an easy to take along book. This thirty day devotional revolves around redemption, whether its from shame, fear, tears, failure or regret, or perhaps its how redemption changes us by making us feel free, renewed or humbled. Each devotional begins with a scripture and then the actual devotion. Then there is a page of scripture that ties into the devotion, which is followed by a page titled "more great idea's" which shares quotes from many well known people such as Franklin and Billy Graham, Max Lucado, and Charles Stanley to name a few. This page is followed by a timely tip, prayer and a blank page to use for the readers own personal reflection. Another great feature of this devotional is a section titled Bible Verses To Consider which provides scripture for topics such as worry, prayer,gratitude,hope and laughter to name a few. My favorite devotionals are always chock full of scripture verses and this one has plenty, but I must say I really loved reading the quotes, some of which I had heard, but many were new to me. While this is a great devotional for personal use, I think it would be great to do with a few friends. A thirty day devotional that will leave you feeling refreshed and uplifted, perfect for someone who needs to recharge their spiritual relationship with God.
