Today's Moment of Truth by Lee Strobel
This devotional contains 180 short readings (2 small pages each) that give a bible verse and a story/facts related to common questions that skeptics raise. There are topics such as creation, the resurrection, the divinity of Jesus, evil and suffering, the validity of the Bible, and other religions. Each devotion has a title that can be found in the Table of Contents that gives a clue to its topic. However, reading are not grouped by topic and there is no topical index. This can make it difficult to find information related to a specific question. For someone wanting in-depth information that fully answers questions, I would recommend Lee Strobel's other books. This one is better for discussion starters and small bits of thought-provoking material. (Perfect for short family devotions!)
The author states in the introduction that these devotions were compiled "in a way that will not only reinforce the faith of Christians, but also make the evidence for the Christian faith accessible to spiritually curious readers, including students, who are interested in better assessing the case for biblical faith." By just taking 5 minutes per day, you can use this tool to increase your knowledge and build your faith.
