The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge by Tony Dungy and Nathan Whitaker, Tyndale House Publishers, $15.99 list price, paperback.
From the publisher:
"What does it take to live a life of significance? People around the world are asking this question all the time, wishing for meaning and purpose. But how many of us are honestly willing to do what it takes to create a life of influence—an uncommon life? Super Bowl–winning former head coach Tony Dungy invites you to stop wondering and start pursuing an uncommon life this year. How? By spending time every day with God. And a great way to do this is to join him in The One Year Uncommon Daily Life Challenge. Are you ready to focus on what really matters? ...The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge contains 365 reflections from the #1 New York Times bestselling author on living an “uncommon life” of integrity, honoring your family and friends, creating a life of real significance and impact, and walking with the Lord. This year, step up to the challenge—and dare to be uncommon every day."
Although mostly geared toward men, the reflections can be applicable for every Christian, man or woman. Each day offers wisdom and insight from scripture, followed by commentary by Dungy, to inspire readers to live out their faith in an uncommon way. The focus is on seven themes: core, family, friends, potential, mission, influence, and faith. Some of the daily topics include breaking free from your past, the most dangerous emotion, grace is good, hidden toxins, loving the sinner, right over convenient, what others see in you, taking care of His treasures, keeping anger in its place, and standing strong on sexual purity, to name just a few. The format is a daily reading for each day of the year, starting with January 1, but can be started at any time because the seven themes are covered every seven days throughout the book.
I'm looking forward to taking this journey in the coming year. I can recommend this book for personal daily devotions and think it would make a wonderful graduation gift for high school and college students.
(I received a complimentary copy of this book for review as a participant in the Tyndale Blog Network, but the opinion of if is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.)
