Does any one have any good devotionals to recommend? What are some of your favourites? Looking to shortlist a couple of resources for 2019.

For the past two years, I've benefited greatly from working my way through Carson's For the Love of God (Vols 1 and 2). I'm looking for something similar - or, dare I say - better.

I'm sorry... I wish I could give you some advice but the only devotionals I have experience with are Carson's.  I have others... just never look at them

Alec Motyer's Isaiah by the Day and Psalms by the Day are commentaries that have a devotional part for each section. They are fantastic.

I am currently going through (and can highly recommend) Tim Keller's daily devotional on the Psalms:

Many classic authors also have devotional series - I very much like the Spurgeon ones and am into the 3rd year/book. Do a Logos website search on "365 days with" to see a swag of these:

I was going to say "for the love of God" until I read though your post lol. I am also going through 365 days with Calvin which  I like

Thanks for your suggestions.

Isaiah by the Day and Psalms by the Day aren't available on Logos at the moment. I've read through some of the samples and am considering getting the hardcover.

I've also skimmed through a couple of passages in 365 Days with Spurgeon (Vol. 1). Quite beautifully written (or rather, spoken), I must say. Yes

It does seem to be stuck in prepub but it does look good.

Personally I'm looking at using this for 2019 - Hearing God Through the Year: A 365-Day Devotional by Dallas Willard. https://ebooks.faithlife.com/products/55204/hearing-god-through-the-year-a-365-day-devotional I really appreciate the writings of Dallas Willard and have just finished another devotional on Renovation of the Heart which I highly recommend - https://www.logos.com/product/30509/renovation-of-the-heart-in-daily-practice-experiments-in-spiritual-transformation

I believe you (having a number of Alec's books in my library, especially from the BST series and his larger "The prophecy of Isaiah"), but those two need a little bit more attention till they come around in Logos.

Great book, I even made a shared workflow from one of the usage approaches to the Psalms. However, it bugs me that this as well as the Dallas Willard devotional mentioned above are not available for international customers.

Interestingly there is nothing on the Psalms page - https://www.logos.com/product/145013/the-songs-of-jesus-a-year-of-daily-devotions-in-the-psalms to suggest I couldn't purchase it in the UK. I do get notified when I try and add it to the cart. It would be good if the product page would this clear.

I left a review (just now, even though the system claims it was on Dec. 1...)

That would be frustrating. I must confess that I don't understand copyright laws like this.

I don't understand them either. I tried to purchase a book in Faithlife Ebooks but it told me that it wasn't available in my country (Canada) so I went to amazon.ca and purchased it in kindle. I would have much rather had it in my Logos library.
