This is a daily devotional in a normal book size, both in height and the page quality. The pages are the typical book off-white color and non-glossy feel. There are no photos or images or side quotes pulled from that day's reading. Not all of the pages are full of text.

I wasn't completely thrilled with the look of the devotional because it's quite large and not easily portable for devotions on the go. The pages being typical book pages aren't my favorite thing either, but I can easily get over that! It's not really that big of a deal, just an expectation thing when the description says it's a devotional.

What I absolutely love about this devotional is the actual text and the meanings. Nouwen's writing is intended to empower readers to claim the truth in their own lives, and includes writing from his previously published works. It's intellectual and emotional, and overall, I like it!
