New Book Review

The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge
by Tony Dungy and Nathan Whitaker

Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. c2011

Reviewed by Diane Busch
If you are a fan of the great coach and leader Tony Dungy, then you will enjoy his daily insights, reminders, and challenges in The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge.  This motivational devotional is great for men, but women can also be inspired by his wisdom and encouragement, as most of the content is not gender specific.

In the introduction Dungy suggests that if you and your friends or co-workers read this same devotional each day, then you can share insights or have discussions via email, phone, or social networking.

This book is set up in 7 themes (one for each day of the week) which are: Core, Family, Friends, Potential, Mission, Influence, and Faith.  Each day's reading includes a scripture passage, the text of his message for the day, and an Uncommon Key, which gets to the core of the day's theme, often by adding a challenge, reminder, or hard question to ponder.

In the back of the book there is an alphabetical Scripture index so you can find a devotional to go along with a certain scripture.

This book is a practical, motivating, and challenging tool to keep you focused on following Jesus and growing in your faith for 2012.  I highly recommend it.
