The Heavens Proclaim His Glory by Lisa Stilwell

This is a beautiful book of images taken by the Hubble telescope of God’s creation in our universe. Images range from galaxies to planets, the birth of stars to their death, illustrating the vastness of God’s creation. Along with the images, the author used short facts to describe the photos to help the reader understand the magnificence of what was pictured. She also included relevant quotes from other Christian authors, leaders or artists and scripture that reflect what the images mean to them and give God praise for his works.

I thought this book was breathtaking, not only because of the images themselves, but because of the care taken to give God glory at the turn of each page. It is impossible to view the photos and read the descriptions without being captivated by the magnitude of God’s creativity, power and intelligence. I find books like this to be a treasure as it reveals a part of creation that we cannot see with our own eyes on a daily basis.

This is the type of book that would be great on display or presented as a gift. I would love to keep it, but I think I will pass it on to bless someone else with it.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
