About the Book

These 366 reflections contain illustrations for faith and growth, inspiration and Bible study with application. Luke’s gospel contains this sentence, “Jesus answered, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and … soul, and … Strength, and … mind.’” These reflections build upon those aspects of Christian growth, with emphasis on the “mind” part—the part we too often neglect.

“Bill McDermet offers those who travel with him on the Damascus Road the bounty of a faithful ministry. Here are probing questions, thoughtful insights and observations, worthy and not-so-worthy examples, words of assurance, and calls to action shared with grace in 366 bit-sized portions.”
—D. Newell Williams, President of Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University

“In this heartfelt work, McDermet provides a brief engaging reflection for every day of the year, which points the reader toward God. In sharing personal experiences as well as stories of biblical characters, the writer invites the reader to feel God’s presence and see a loving God’s guidance each day.”
—Westbow Press
