The Heavens Proclaim His Glory is a book on a “spectacular view of creation through the lens of the Hubble Telescope”. And it really is spectacular!
This is a really nice hard cover book that has a wonderful compilation of images from the telescope and quotes from many different well-known people. It also ties the Word of God into it beautifully.
I was excited to be able to review this book because of the interest my children have in all things space. But is was so much more than that for me. The first morning I opened it up, I was amazed. It made me stop and worship the God of creation. It is an amazing picture of God, how mighty He is and how infinitely small I am.
One of my favorite quotes from the book was this:
I imagine God looking through the artistry of His heavens to this little ball called earth, zooming in through the chaos and noise and turmoil and activity, and focusing in on my heart. As the universe rages and rotates around Him, He has the grace and love to care what happens to me. How can that be? -Terri Blackstock
So I had to pick it up again with my husband that evening. We finished it because we could not put it down. This is definitely a book that would be great on a living room table to share with others in your home. We also plan to use it as part of our creation studies during our homeschooling time.
I would highly recommend this one! It exceeded my expectations. It would make an incredible gift for a family. In fact, it might be what I give for Christmas gifts this year!
