January 26: “God’s Profile Never Changes” (Except When It Does) Part 26/365: An atheist reviews a Christian devotional. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, If you didn’t already have a laugh over the cheesiest devotional title found in the book so far, well – you might be hanging out at too many churches led by cruiseship clergymen. But, seriously – “God’s Profile Never Changes?” It’s not just a cheesy title, it can be… Read more

January 25: “Share Your Struggles” (Through False Humility) Part 25/365: An atheist reviews a Christian devotional. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, It’s a miracle! After so many scriptures from the Apostle Paul, Psalms, James, and the fortune cookies of Proverbs, the author finally decided to bless readers with a few words from Jesus himself! Let’s see what the meek and mild Prince of Peace has to say… Verse Of The Day: Jesus… Read more

January 24: “Share Your Struggles” (Through False Humility) Part 24/365: An atheist reviews a Christian devotional. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, Day 24… I honestly can’t believe that I’ve made it this far without slitting my wrists. Sadly, the pages of the book you gave me do not possess the stiffness nrequired to open a vein. So, let’s just carry on with today’s review: Verse Of The Day:”Who is wise and understanding… Read more

January 23: “Ask For Wisdom” (By Avoiding Knowledge) Part 23/365: An atheist reviews a Christian devotional. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t looking forward to my daily obligatory review of the little book you gave me. First, I put it off until after my coffee. Then, after lunch. But, then I noticed a couple nagging private messages from readers asking when the post would be up…. Read more

January 22: “Schedule Rest” (Naptime With God) Part 22/365: An atheist reviews a Christian devotional. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, After waking up a little sore from marching with about 150,000 of my closest friends in Seattle yesterday, I almost took today’s devotional literally and skipped my obligatory review altogether.  However, a deal is a deal but I’ll keep things short, starting with the opening verse: Verse Of The Day:”Return to your… Read more

January 21: “Be A Bridge” (To What, Exactly?) Part 21/365: An atheist reviews a Christian devotional. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, I’m not sure if it’s the insomnia or the hangover, but let’s just cut the pleasantries and get to today’s review: Verse Of The Day:”Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” – Matthew 6:9-10 I must… Read more

January 20: “Live As Forgiven” (Whatever That Means) Part 20/365: An atheist reviews a Christian devotional. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, I hope you enjoyed this morning’s presidential inauguration church service accompanied by not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, but – six religious prayers and Bible readings on the steps of our nation’s capitol. Not to mention, the two lengthy public prayers at the official inaugural luncheon offered… Read more

January 19: “Finish The Race” (That Has No Finish Line) Part 19/365: An atheist reviews a Christian devotional. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, I’ve tried to play nice. Yesterday I even admitted that I almost agreed with the day’s devotions (until they took a turn for the worse).  Unfortunately, today’s devotional is nothing but dangerously wicked trash. Let’s start with the supplied verse: Verse Of The Day:”The testing of your faith produces… Read more

January 18: “Trust Him” (What Choice Do You Have?) Part 18/365: An atheist reviews a Christian devotional. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, Happy Hump Day, sister! I’ll admit, after subjecting myself to yesterday’s nonsense I almost didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. But, then I remembered that I’m no longer required to sacrifice my own joy on the altars of imaginary cloud men. Also, a deal’s a deal -… Read more

January 17: “Laugh Regularly” (It Helps You Realize How Broken You Are) Part 17/365: An atheist reviews a Christian devotional. (If you are new to this page, here’s a little background.) Dear Karen, I couldn’t bring myself to start my day with the book you re-gifted unto me, so I saved my reading and review until it was late enough in the day to enjoy an adult beverage while doing so. Shall we get started? Verse Of The Day: “A… Read more
