- love it by Mark on 1/4/2017
I have long enjoyed Francine Rivers' fiction novels, and was curious to see what a non-fiction book by her would be like. I was not disappointed.
This is a devotional type book, though it is not divided up into days. There are 52 chapters, or sections instead.
Each section has a title and theme, a Bible verse, and then Francine talks about something in nature/creation and how we can see and hear God in it: sunrises, woodpeckers, glaciers, and more. At the end of each chapter, there is a place to reflect, apply, and connect with God - which is a prayer. It then ends with another passage from the Bible.
The book is full of colorful photos from nature: animals, flowers, trees, and more. And it is also full of inspiration and ways to see God in His creation. I am not sure what I was expecting by the title and description of the book, but Francine went beyond those expectations and came up with a great book that can be used as a devotional, but doesn't have to be. Whether or not it is used for that purpose, it is an inspiring read that brings the beauty of creation and nature together with Scripture and God's presence.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
- Awesome by Lorrie on 1/1/2017

- A Stunning Picture of the Creator Through the Lens of His Creation by Seasons of Opportunities on 9/29/2016
I fell in love with this book the very day it came in the mail. The photo on this hardback book doesn't even begin to do justice to the interior photography and design. It is packed with the most amazing pictures of God's creation and little tidbits of information concerning each creature displayed.
It contains Scripture, songs, quotes and inspiring devotionals that will encourage and lift your spirit. I have enjoyed reading many of them and look forward to reading the rest. Every day Francine comes up with a great observations that come from the time she has spent considering the world around her. At the end of each day she gives a chance for reflection, application, and time to connect with God. The photographs
of nature included are just awe inspiring. They are scattered on almost every page in the book along with a lovely border on the edge of the pages.
This would make a great gift, or just an attractive coffee table centerpiece. It can be used as a devotional, or maybe just a pick-me-upper with your afternoon tea or coffee. I would highly recommend you get a copy of this for yourself and a friend! I would love to give some away at Christmas.
I was privileged to receive this book in exchange for my honest opinion from the Tyndale Blogger Program.
