The Heavens Proclaim His Glory
By A Spectacular View of Creation Through the Lens of the NASA Hubble Telescope
Published by Thomas Nelson
Description of book from Booksneeze.com:
‘Our world displays the handiwork of God all around us—in the land and sea, the animals and the plants. But in respect to the sky, the heavens, the universe…there’s a realm of beauty and creation man has not been able to witness, until now. The Heavens Proclaim His Glory is a compilation of stunning photography taken by NASA’s Hubble® Telescope capturing striking images of stars, galaxies, cosmic events, planets, and more. Vivid up-close photographs are paired with a romantic Psalm or quote, as well as a short description of the image. The Heavens will open up a whole new world of worship and praise for our God.
Contributors include: Francis Chan, Mike Huckabee, John MacArthur, Stephen Mansfield, Sarah Young, Max Lucado, Jenna Lucado, Henry & Richard Blackaby, Robert Morgan, Kirk Cameron, Homer Hickam, and more.’
I originally requested the book because I’m into astronomy and so are my brother and father. To put it pretty simple, its a beautiful book and very inspiring! It can be hard for our human brains to fathom the size of the galaxies and planets and such in the pictures, and even harder to imagine the God who created it all! Yet, I know this God personally and He knows every hair on my head. Wow. The pictures are colorful and amazing, the quotes are thought-provoking. This book would make a wonderful gift for anyone into astronomy, or anyone who just needs to read something uplifting (isn’t that all of us?)
