Men’s devotionals. How many men do you know that read a devotional book? Chances are, not too many, but in addition to reading the Bible, a men’s devotion can help the man in your life grow in faith. Often devotions for men are shorter and, most importantly, are written from and to a man’s perspective.

If you search for devotionals on nearly any Christian book retailer’s website or even Amazon your results will be approximately 11,000 or more. If you narrow your results to “Men”, the number drops drastically to about 300.

(If you are looking for women’s devotionals, see this post.)

While few devotionals are appropriate for men or women, most devotional writers target women. That’s because the great majority of devotional readers are women. As a result, devotionals geared for a male audience are far and few between.

If your husband (or any man in your life) has a desire or  you feel the nudging from God that they do to walk more closely with God, gifting him a devotion for men may be a great idea.

Men must always stand firm in their walk with Christ. No matter what comes their way, always remember that God will always be there to guide him and accompany him in all of life’s adventures. When the going gets tough, they don’t have to fret because they can always find the help they need in Christ. While all of us should be reading our Bible daily, sometimes a men’s devotional can help set their day pointed to Christ and off on the right foot.

I’ve complied twelve of the most popular and best-selling men’s devotions for the man in your life who seeks a deeper walk with our Heavenly Father.
