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!
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".
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.
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.Read more ›
