The Heavens Proclaim His Glory

The Heavens Proclaim His Glory - a book review
a spectacular view of creation through the lens of the hubble telescope
created and compiled by Lisa Stilwell
Thomas Nelson publishers

This is a fascinating book where galactical images leap off of the page.

Star-studded quotes from the likes of Abraham Lincoln and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to current day Christian recording artists Third Day are used to draw the reader to understand this vast creation and to bring glory to it's creator. We are spiritually lead through the eye of the Hubble and the scriptures to understand our minute existence, the infinitesimal position of humanity, in which God chooses to place his image.

Science is brought to life and the heavens are brought to earth. The details of each of the Hubble photos are presented in a way that the reader is entranced by the magnitude of it all. The reader is lead to an appreciation of the Hubble Telescope and the value it has brought to the world. Scientific facts speak to the knowledgeable background of the author and contibutors of this delightful piece of science made into art.

An awesome coffee table book that will thrill the scientist and comfort the spiritual heart. This book will entertain children and educate the adult. It is something that the reader can continue to go back to and walk away with a nugget of inspiration possible only through the majesty which is the creation we live within.
