Review of The Heavens Proclaim His Glory

Book Description:

“I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how he could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.”  Abraham Lincoln

Our world displays the handiwork of God all around us—in the land and sea, the animals and the plants. But in respect to the sky, the heavens, the universe…there’s a realm of beauty and creation man has not been able to witness, until now.  The Heavens Proclaim His Glory is a compilation of stunning photography taken by NASA’s Hubble® Telescope capturing striking images of stars, galaxies, cosmic events, planets, and more. Vivid up-close photographs are paired with a romantic Psalm or quote, as well as a short description of the image. The Heavens will open up a whole new world of worship and praise for our God. 

My Thoughts:

A picture is worth a thousand words does not come close to describing The Heavens.  Picture after picture revealing God’s creation beyond our comprehension is what you will find in this book.  The pictures alone stir up praise and awe of our Creator.  You cannot possibly go through this book and not gasp at the splendor of our King.  We live on this earth and yet God created so much more.  The expanse of the solar system and galaxies beyond our comprehension are revealed to us through The Heavens.  The addition of Scripture and quotes from well known Christian authors and others are not even needed.  However, they do add another dimension to the book that tries to put it all in perspective.  This book is a must have for anyone who teaches on any level at a church.  It is sure to stir up much conversation and even help show just how big God is.  Obviously God cannot be limited to the pages I this book, but The Heavens does do Creation justice.
