by
Eddie Jones and Cindy Sproles


ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

Eddie Jones and Cindy Sproles are the cofounders of Christian Devotions Ministries. Their He Said, She Said devotions are syndicated in a number of newspapers across the eastern seaboard and they host the weekly He Said, She Said Radio, Friday nights at 6:00 p.m. est. on Blog Talk Radio. Eddie and Cindy are popular speakers and teachers at Writers Conferences across the country.

Eddie is the author of five non-fiction books and his newest fiction release, The Curse of Captain LaFoote, a middle grade book. While Cindy is the author of one non-fiction and two compilations.

Together they teach writing with WritersCoach.us. Eddie and Cindy have been writing the He Said, She Said devotions since 2008, taking one scripture weekly and looking at it from two perspectives--His and Hers, with the idea that learning more about scripture from two perspectives helps one to delve deeper in God's word and know Him better.

Cindy and Eddie are not only good friends of mine, but a regular source of my spiritual renewal. It's a great idea, the he-said/she-said concept and I always enjoy their devotionals. Both are not only grounded spiritually, and super nice people but they both keep me laughing. It's that humor and heart that makes the spiritual more relatable in the most practical sense.

~Gina Holmes, author of Crossing Oceans~

I've known Eddie Jones and Cindy Sproles for a few years. Each has a way of tickling my funny bone, so I wondered what a devotional book by them would be. I can heartily recommend it. The humor is there, but it's coupled with deep truths that go straight to the heart of the problem. You'll find a path that winds closer to God through He Said, She Said.

MY THOUGHTS

If you gave the same scripture verse to a man and a woman and asked them to express their thoughts, what would you get?  I had never really thought of it before, but apparently you can get totally different responses and perspectives.

In the devotional book titled He Said, She Said, there are prime examples of how differently men and women really think. For example, take Ecclesiastes 3:1,7, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak."

In response to this verse, He said - "She Won't Shut Up" and She said - "He Won't Open Up". These are the titles of the two responses given, and followed by their opinions and how they personally relate to the scripture text.

I felt that many of the topics in this book were very shallow ... possibly in attempts to be funny. Some of the content made me feel a bit uncomfortable. I am not sure that this book is classified correctly as a devotional book. While the book is entertaining to a certain degree, I expected to find more solid content.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of He Said, She Said courtesy of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance in exchange for my honest review.
