Unglued Devotional by Lysa TerKaust


Lysa TerKaust guides the reader through “60 days of imperfect progress” as she reflects her personal journey towards keeping her emotions in check.  Each day’s reading starts with a Scripture reading, a thought for the day, the devotion itself, then a closing prayer.  It is one of the easiest devotionals I have read.  Each day presents one aspect of truth about what is happening behind our emotions.  While this book is written for women, men can also stand to gain from considering some of the author’s reflections.  The reader should be left with the ability to show themselves the same grace and patience shown to them by God.

Overall, I’d say this is a unique devotional filled with honest reflections.  It is easy to read and filled with light-hearted moments.  While not a deep theological work, it still covers some of the basic theological issues behind our unhealthy emotions.  One drawback to the format of the book, though, is that a reader may lose interest before the book gets into “meaty” issues.  I think it may have been more effective as a workbook.
