Daily devotional books for growth in Jesus Christ

Use our Christian daily devotional books and Bible study resources to learn greater devotion to God

Is devotion to God your primary passion? Our daily devotionals and Bible studies are designed to help you pursue this important spiritual goal. More than mere fluff, our books are “devotional books with a difference.” If you’re ready to grow, we’re here to support you.

The WordPoints Daybook Series provides daily devotional meditations, while our collection of Bible study tools will give you guidance in exploring the Scriptures. The WordPoints blog will challenge your thinking on a variety of religious topics. We’d especially like to draw your attention to the Daily Family Bible Studies, a collection of biblical themes for families to talk about together.

I sincerely hope you’ll join me on this journey, a journey which is by far the most important of all our endeavors! As you use the WordPoints website, feel free to share your insights or questions with me. I’d love to help you in your Christian daily devotion.
