Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The universe holds 100 billion galaxies, each with two billion stars. And one you.
 
Indescribable takes you on a journey through the vastness of outer space and into the depths of the soul. While modern science allows us to see farther into space than ever before, every step draws us closer to the God who breathed each star into existence.
 
Come discover the wonder of the cosmos and the intimacy of the Creator
who loves you like no other.
 
Putting their life message into print for the first time, Pastor Louie Giglio and songwriter Matt Redman intertwine devotional insights with remarkable scientific facts that awaken both mind and spirit. Indescribable is nothing less than a call to worship—an invitation to know and be known by the God of all creation.

Our family is blessed to be under the leadership of Louie Giglio and Passion City Church. Our two-year-old and four-year-old LOVE this new addition to our coffee table. Every time they open it up, they want to listen to Louie's message from Desiring God's 2011 National Conference, and sing with the stars and the whales. This book will surely open your eyes to the greatness of our God!

One of the most gorgeous books showing God's magnificent, unending handiwork...

Combining science, nature, God's Word, and their own heart and soul searches, the authors have put together a book to intrigue, encourage, and inspire you, if nothing else! Find science between the pages, nature in its wildest forms, and breath of God within these pages...I am enthralled by the photos, completely taken. I think this book shouts to the world His goodness and His power. I'm especially impressed by the parallels between the studies of science and how God loves us (and other metaphors). There is no measure by which to truly see how much God loves us- there is no way we know how big this universe is. Simply- indescribable!

I was introduced to Louie when a pastor friend of mine told me I must watch this DVD of a pastor talking about how small we are and how big God is compared to us and the universe. The DVD was called "Indescribable", I absolutely loved the DVD and since then, Louie has become an inspiration to my exploration into our God's great and vast universe. This book is an extension from Louie's and Matt's study and love for our God and a great read even if you're not into the science of the universe. I highly recommend this book, it's a quick read but packed full of great information.

I own a LOT of books that feature photos of astronomical objects as seen through the Hubble Space Telescope, or one of the larger ground-based observatories. As a Christian, I am fascinated with such books, because they demonstrate the awesome extent to which "the heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky shows His handiwork". Pouring over their pages gives one a sense of how amazingly huge and diverse and magnificently beautiful the universe really is.

One thing however, that I find irritating about almost all such books, is that they are nearly always published and/or edited / authored / assembled by individuals who have credentials only as secular (atheistic) scientists or pagan astronomers or photographers. That means each photo of an amazing star cluster or planet is invariable accompanied by some offensive commentary that states or implies that such wonders simply "came about" on their own... denying any credit to the God who truly spoke them into existence. Often, seemingly just for spite, they will throw in some even worse commentary about how the scale of time of astronomical formations takes us back to long before mankind evolved from monkeys, etc.

It is refreshing to find a book like this one, "Indescribable", by Louie Giglio... which not only features an impressive array of astronomical photos... but pays homage to the sovereign, almighty, omniscient, omnipresent, infinite, holy, awesome God and Lord of All Creation who... created all of this.

It is "Astronomy Appreciation for Christians".

“Indescribable” by Louie Giglio and Matt Redman is, in a word, indescribable. In this awe-inspiring work, these two men impart incredible facts about the vastness of our universe, and the concomitant awesomeness of the God who created it and us. Uncountable stars make up our galaxy. Uncountable galaxies make up our universe. It is beyond our human ability to comprehend a universe without borders, yet that is where we live. If it DID have borders, we couldn’t conceive of what might lay beyond the borders; either way, if you think too hard about it you will surely get a headache.

Lavishly illustrated with numerous photographs of stellar beauty, if “Indescribable” doesn’t bring you to your knees before our God, nothing will. The Bible tells us he formed the stars with his breath. He hung them in space, and knows each of them by their names. As vast as all that is, he also knows US by name. Our insignificant little lives, on our little blue dot called Earth, circling our modest sized star Sol, lost within the vastness of our Milky Way galaxy, which in turn is lost amongst the uncountable billions and billions of galaxies in an infinite universe… yet He knows each of us by name, and His eye is always on us. Stop and think about that for a moment.

This book will bless all who read it. It will humble you. It will put you in awe of our God. It will bring tears to your eyes. It will help you to grasp just how much God truly loves you. I wish I could afford to purchase thousands of copies of “Indescribable” to give away. Because I cannot afford to do that, I will instead urge everybody reading this review to get a copy. I pray it will open your heart, mind and soul to the great goodness of God, our Creator and the Creator of this magnificent universe.

I just recently picked up Indescribable and I have been mesmerized by it since that point in time. There is a unique and enjoyable blend presented here by Louie Giglio and Matt Redman. While Giglio is a pastor and Redman a worship minister, beyond that they are both in awe of God and have the decency as humans to acknowledge that what science teaches us about the immensity and majesty of the universe is a true sign of the glory of God! The version of the book I am reviewing is the Illustrated Edition, and I'll explain why. There comes a point where we have to allow conversation to happen organically for our testimony to be fruitful. Indescribable (Illustrated Edition) is just the sort of book to allow conversation if it were shared by being on a coffee table in a common space for guests.

People are drawn to images, and most of us find images of space uniquely intriguing, so this book is chalk full of interest inducing pictures. There are some amazing full page and two-page spreads of space that just leave your mind spiraling that such realities exist. Giglio and Redman pick up where the images leave off by providing detailed stories of what can be seen and other things that have been discovered with incredible data such as size, density, speed and sound of the heavenly bodies. These realities are astounding. With a simultaneous acknowledgement of God as the extravagant creator of all the book begins and sustains with a tenor of worship. Seamlessly they tie in Scripture passages and other literary references to the glory of God, even as found in the heavenly bodies, into the story.

Much about this book is refreshing to me. I love seeing science and faith play nicely together.
