When I got this book, The Runner's Devotional by Dana Niesluchowski & David Veerman, I had every intention of using it alongside a running program. However, I had numerous health issues arise and was unable to run. I enjoy distance walking, however this book is really geared towards the runner as the title suggests.

I liked the personal stories in this book as well as the encouragement. I think the book could have been better if it was a daily devotional instead of once a week. Still, this bo

Pump! Pump! Pump! The rush of blood surging through your veins; shortness of breath; dry tongue stuck to the roof of your mouth; sweat across your brow. The rush of it all! Determination to finish without stopping. Running, jumping, hurtling so fast, you feel for the second your feet leave the ground, you might race high enough to even touch the clouds. Sometimes I wonder if there’s a purpose to our running and if it has any tie to our spiritual lives. The Runner’s Devotional, written by father ...more

I've just started running again so was very excited to get this book. The book is divided into 52 weeks. Each week has seven sections - Intro, the runner, the race, the result, my story, think it through and on running. Each section is to be read on one day of the week and then at the end is a small space to journal and a running log. The layout of the devotional is very impressive and put together well. I like the idea of mixing my running each week with a spiritual aspect.
My only complaint wou

I have to admit right from the start that I am not a runner. I am a walker. I love to walk and do so on a regular basis. I didn’t think there was that much difference between running and walking (other than going faster) until I read this book.

Although not a runner I still benefited from and enjoyed reading this book. I can’t imagine a real runner not liking and receiving encouragement from The Runner’s Devotional.

Set up as a weekly devotional, it has 52 chapters, one for each week. The topics o

A good gift for runners, from the wannabe to the enthusiast. Each weekly read gives you a good dose of inspiration from the Bible and motivation from fellow runners. Includes running tips, testimonies, a weekly running log, some basic training guides, and encouraging words featuring Scripture passages. Many feature Paul's writing, which I love, and very apt since Paul wrote about living the Christian life as a runner in a race.

As a devotional, it doesn't stand out much. I would've liked to have

fairly insightful devotional but sometimes stayed a bit superficial. I loved that it specifically connected running to faith
