From the Back Cover
When we encounter pain and suffering, our lives are disrupted. Our normal paths and expectations come to a halt. Suffering forces us to take a new path, to create new expectations. In Drops Like Stars, Bell shows us how art does the same thing; it disrupts us, forces us to see the world differently and to forge new expectations. How will we reimagine suffering when we realize that God sees our lives as works of art?

What do bar soap sculptures have to do with the pain in our lives? Pick up this book and read to find out! It will definitely be worth your time, considering that it can be read in 30 minutes flat.
I believe everyone is creative, but creativity manifests differently in everyone. So, those who don't understand poetry or are not able to explore and interpret art without reading commentary will not enjoy this book. They are the ones who say it can be read in 10 minutes, or that it isn't worth the money because there are so few words on each page. I have read it, am rereading it, and will continue to read it as I explore the relationship of suffering and creativity in my own life.
