Devotionals I Recommend for a New Year

by Tim Challies

With 2021 quickly waning, many of us are beginning to think about a devotional approach for the year ahead. Some are looking for a resource that will serve as the main component of their devotions and others for something that will be merely supplementary. Either way, I’ve collected some of the resources I most recommend and hope you find something here that will serve you as you devote yourself to reading the Word of God in 2022.

Full-Year Devotionals

Truth for Life by Alistair Begg is a new book that offers a full year’s worth of devotions. ($26:24 from The Wandering Bookseller – details below)

Morning and Evening is a full-year’s devotional. I recommend this version which has been slightly modernized by Alistair Begg. (Also consider Daily Treasure and The Promises of God, also by Spurgeon.)  (Available from: – see below)

New Morning Mercies by Paul Tripp is very popular and available in a number of editions. (Available from: – see below)

Daily Readings from the Life of Christ by John MacArthur. (See also volume 2 and volume 3)
(Available from: – see below)

For the Love of God by D.A. Carson offers devotional readings that follow the M’Cheyne reading plan. (See also volume 2.) (Available from: – see below and can be ordered from The Wandering Book Seller)

Michael’s Note on Bookshops:

I prefer to purchase books from smaller suppliers, even though they may cost a bit more.  I find they have a reliable theological focus.
