Book Review: No Cape Required

No Cape Required: A Devotional 52 Ways to Unleash Your Inner Hero by Kristen Parrish a series of quick read devotions that describe at attribute of 52 different heroes and how we as Christians should strive to possess them. 

I enjoyed these quick devotions.  They take less than 5 minutes each to read.  There is alwys scripture attached to the attribute and a couple suggestions of what you can do.  There is also a simple prayer to say asking for this characteristic.

I think this book would be great for a Mom or Dad. 60+% of the characters would be known by most children and could be used as a great lesson to them.  Although young kids might not know Jane Eyre and Andy Dufresne from Shawshank Redemption they would know Superman, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Robin Hood, etc. and could be taught the great simple lessons.

Another thing the author discusses in the beginning (and for good reason) is that these people/characters are not what we should strive for but the single characteristic.  None of us will be Superman but we can strive for Justice.  Robin Hood was a thief but he did understand Charity.

I plan on using specific characters on my children.  The others are great reminders and visual reminders of all the wonderful godly characteristics we should strive for.


Note: I did receive a copy of this book for free to read and review.  The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
