Voices of the faithful, devotions for every day of the year: book 2, compiled by Kim P Davis, created by Beth Moore, Thomas Nelson, 2010, 464 Pages, ISBN-13: 978-0849946233, $14.99
Easter turns thoughts to spiritual things and Beth Moore’s heartfelt devotions are an excellent choice to consider. She invites readers into the joys, heartaches and struggles of missionaries throughout the world in this collection of devotions written by over 300 Christian missionaries, many of them women. Personal accounts of inspiring missionary journeys affirm their missionary call and need for prayer.
In the second volume of Voices of the Faithful, as in the first book, a year’s worth of one page essays feature missionary’s heroic adventures and extreme spiritual commitment. Devotions include Scripture, a brief illustration and end with prayer.
Beth Moore’s inspirational quotes follow the month’s devotional theme with an introduction from International Mission Board, Kim P. Davis. Davis’s outstanding compilation and organization is reflected in the two indexes that complete the book. The first index features devotion titles by dates within each month, while the second is an alphabetized scripture index.
Topical monthly theme focus:
- January—Prayer, the priority
- February—God our Loving Father
- March—Divine Appointments

Sections on how to pray for missionaries, the churches’ mission role and a salvation message complete the book.
This collection of true-life stories includes narratives of religious persecution, missionaries in mortal danger, cultural atrocities and miraculous answered prayer. From a Christian who claims God at knifepoint, to prayer that revived a coma victim in spite of village witch doctors.
