Christian devotional literature

One man’s definition here, would you agree with it?

Christian devotional literature (also called devotionals or Christian living literature) is religious writing that is neither doctrinal nor theological, but designed for individuals to read for their personal edification and spiritual formation. Theologian Karl Holl has suggested that devotional literature came into full development at the time of Pietism during the second half of the 17th century.

I post some devotional material here under the tag “devotional” and write some devotionals on my main weblog, as well as a Verse of the Day on The Fellowship Room.
