The Same Love by Paul Baloche is a devotional book that parallels Baloche’s record of the same name. It is a basic devotional that uses the songs off Baloche’s record as their inspiration. In the devotional, Baloche shares the heart behind the music.
There are thirteen devotions. Each devotion contains the lyrics of the song, a paraphrase, by Baloche, of a scripture passage, the devotion itself, and a prayer. The contents of the devotion gives the background of the song and how the song was written. Some of the other contributors from the record share their thoughts as well.
The devotions are thought provoking and connect the song to scripture passages. The devotional makes a good companion to the record and gives insight into the songwriting process, especially as it pertains to the praise and worship genre.
This devotional is short however. The description says 122 pages (I had an electronic version), but it seemed much shorter than that. Reading it in one sitting would probably take less than two or three hours. However, if used as a devotional, there is a couple of weeks (13 days) worth of thought, song, and prayer.
