As a busy academic and administrator, James Perkin knew all too well how difficult it can be to make time for daily devotions. Out of this experience, Perkin developed a devotional diary prepared specifically to encourage daily reflection and prayer. Devotional Diary provides scripture and a short prayer for each day of the year.

Editorial Reviews

“A year spent with Perkin’s Devotional Diary should prove to be an adventure in spiritual pilgrimage after which, one may be sure, there will be no problem over what to say or how to say it in one’s prayers.” M. Allen Gibson, Halifax Chronicle Herald
