The God Shot: 100 Snapshots of God's Character in Scripture by Tara-Leigh Cobble: Book Review

 **Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

See a Clearer Picture of Who God Really Is

Scripture is meant to reveal God to us, but sometimes it's hard for us to see Him there. What if all you needed was a new lens?

We often look to the Bible for advice on how to live, but when that becomes our focus, it's easy to miss the point of Scripture: to reveal God and His character to us. What does He want to tell us about Himself?

He describes Himself as the God of peace. The God who protects. The God of joy. These are truths we can lean on every day of our lives, but we miss the beautiful attributes of God when we look for only ourselves in our Bibles.

In this 100-day devotional, trusted Bible teacher Tara-Leigh Cobble explores powerful sections from each book of the New Testament. Each day's reading points toward a name or attribute of God from that passage. These snapshots are dense with theological truth, helping you grow in the truth of His character and rest in His goodness and kindness.

She is also the founder of D-Group, an international network of more than 300 discipleship and Bible study groups that meet each week, and the host of a daily radio feature called The God Shot. Tara-Leigh lives in Dallas, Texas. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Who is God?

Wow, talk about a big question, right? If you were to ask this same question to a room full of Christians, you might find that you end up with a LOT of different answers...all of them correct. There are many qualities that we can attribute to God, and trying to sum the up in one simple answer is not an easy task. 

The God Shot gives us a look at the qualities that make God who He is, and gives us a deeper understanding of Him. For each day, we are given one bible verse that tells us a piece of who God truly is. It is then followed by a short reading that expands upon that verse. They are very quick readings, making them ideal for daily reading. There are 100 days worth of reading. All of these brief snapshots go together to give us the bigger picture of God. 

If you are looking for a good devotional to help grow your relationship with God, this is certainly one worth checking out. 


  1. Besides my daily bible reading I do like daily devotional books, they are quick to read and really gets you thinking. This book would be a great addition.
