40 loaves review and giveaway

Why do I allow myself to get so upset by what other people think about me?
Why do I hate confrontation?

These are questions that I have asked myself this week.

All hard, soul-searching questions....

You know it's easy sometimes to coast through life just taking the punches as they come, but if we do - there is never any growth. Real and lasting change only comes when we ask the important questions.

Are you looking for a book that can guide you through some of these questions? Questions that will make you examine yourself and scrutinize your motivations?

40 loaves, Breaking Bread with Our Father Each Day
by C.D. Baker has short devotionals, all based on a tough question. Each devotional is followed by a set of questions meant for self-reflection and a prayer.

This book is a good resource and springboard for additional introspection. Scripture verses are used in an appropriate manner to make the points presented by the author.

C. David Baker founded an award-winning business before redirecting his career to write full-time from his small farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He is the author of eight books, including six novels, one of which was nominated for a Christy Award. He has contributed articles to the Christian History Institute’s international publication Glimpses, and to Christian Singles magazine. Baker has a Master’s degree in theological studies from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

This book was provided for review by Waterbrook/Multnomah publishers.

VERY interested! I've been in the market for a new devotional. I've had the same one for 3 years and it's good but I'm read to move on. The questions you pose seem so timely for me.
