Strong For a Moment Like This

The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton

Few people know that during the 2016 presidential campaign, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton received a devotion every day. Over the course of those 20 months, Rev. Dr. Bill Shillady—a pastoral friend of Clinton’s—and a handful of other pastors provided the Democratic nominee with spiritual support to stay strong through arguably one of the more contentious elections in American history.

Now many of these devotions are being made public. Entitled Strong For a Moment Like This—The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the collection—published by Abingdon Press—includes 365 of the more than 600 devotions written for Clinton, along with personal notes, portions of her speeches, and headlines that provide context for that day’s devotion. Clinton is writing the foreword, the first time post-election readers will have a chance to hear directly from her about her faith during this time.

The book’s devotions are organized into 12 themes, such as Forgiveness, Doing Good, Courage, and Women.  A portion of the proceeds from the book will go to the United Methodist City Society in New York.
