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!

Format: Hardcover
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 love Lou Giglio's books and Matt Redman's songs, so I love the words in the book, but my b/w Kindle does not do the photos justice. It made me want a color Kindle Fire!

"He ... who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead." ~ Albert Einstein

If you read "Indescribable" you owe it to yourself to watch the videos by the same name at youtube. I felt that this really made reading the book a complete experience. Especially if you are reading this on an older Kindle and not the Kindle Fire. On the Fire the pictures must look amazing.

Louie Giglio and Matt Redman's creative writing conveys awe quite effectively. There are also interesting facts like how there are more stars than grains of sand on all the world's beaches. That is just amazing. The authors also discuss neutron stars, solar bursts, black holes, red giant stars and nebulae. They also reveal that stars sing. Now if you watch the videos you can actually hear what a star sounds like.

This book reminded me of when I used to live on a farm in Africa and how we used to stay up late at night gazing into the heavens. The message in this book is that God is greater than we could ever imagine. So read this book but also check out the videos.

Indescribable is a beautiful call to worship the Lord of the Universe. Fantastic photos from the Hubble and other incredible telescopes coupled with facts and figures about the size and amazing details about the stars and other heavenly bodies. But in each short chapter, this magnificence is put into perspective: as indescribable the wonders of God's creation are, there is something even more incredible. The Creator who brought this unbelievable universe into existence also created each and every one of us in His own image. He knows us inside and out, and more than that, He loves us with a passion beyond belief. More fantastic than the unbelievably fantastic universe He created is this: the Lord and Creator of all this majesty humbled Himself to come to earth, to take our sins on His sinless body, and died a tortuous death so that we can be cleansed of our sins to live with Him in eternity. That is incredible, fabulous, magnificent...indescribable!

The book is Louie and Matt's observation about the universe that is beyond us. It was nice to be reminded that God is big and His creation is beautiful. Both what we see and what is not seen by the human eye. God is always worthy of out worship and this book reminded me of that. Praise God.
