The Heavens Proclaim His Glory: A spectacular View of Creation Through the Lens of the NASA Hubble Telescope
This book is a compilation of pictures taken by the Hubble Telescope of our universe. Each picture is accompanied by a brief explanation or description of the picture. Along with this is a passage of scripture and a quote that expound on the brilliance and splendor of God’s creation. The quality of the book and the pictures are exemplary.
As I was reading the passages and looking at the amazing photographs I was reminded of how small I am in the whole of God’s creation. I am truly a speck, on a speck, flying around a speck in the speck of this universe. Especially when we remember that God’s hand alone spans the universe. What is man that God is mindful of him? It is amazing grace God would send His Son to die for me alone and that He has a plan for me, a future and a hope. These were some of my thoughts as I was flipping through the pages. I think this is a good book to help you gain perspective and appreciation for the hugeness of God and His awesome power.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program
