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

Is devotion to God your primary passion in life? 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 growing collection of Bible study tools will give you guidance in exploring the Scriptures. The WordPoints blog and podcast will challenge your thinking on a variety of religious topics.

I sincerely hope you'll join me on this journey! 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. -- Gary Henry ([email protected])
