Trail Thoughts

I wanted to recommend a new daily devotional that I'm enjoying. It is called Trail Thoughts: A Daily Companion for Your Journey of Faith, and it's written by Eric Kampmann, who runs our distribution partner Midpoint. Unlike most devotionals, this one isn't sappy or cheesy. It's thought-provoking and makes no effort to wrap up the Bible into a small package with a cute little bow. Instead, Kampmann focuses on the big picture of Scripture while challenging readers to examine their place in God's world. He chooses a very apropos verse for the introduction:
This is what the LORD says: Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. (Jeremiah 6:16)

That's what Trail Thoughts is all about -- finding that ancient path as revealed by God. If you prefer some happy fluff to end your day or want straightforward "how to" advice, this book probably isn't for you. But if you're looking to be challenged and exposed to a wide array of topics with a biblical perspective, you will enjoy it.
