I like this book because it shows all the unique things and activities that is happening in the universe. Really difficult for me to believe they are random events. The universe express the character of God's creative, beautiful, imaginative, and wisdom of God.

the pictures other than absolutely stunning. Nelson has found a very unique way to unite science and religion into a book that anyone can enjoy despite their spiritual leanings.

Each photograph is labeled and many are explained with details of distance from earth, size, and other scientific facts. Complementing each photo is a snippet of spirituality that might come in the form of a Bible verse, a poem, or a quotation.

Patsy Clairmont, author and speaker, said 'Can you imagine an endless view of color, comets, and sparkling curlicues pirouetting through the heavens? Lean in and be reminded that our Creator continues to shower the cosmos with His glory. These pictures and thoughts make my heart dance with joy!'

Clairmont is absolutely correct. You can not look at these pictures without knowing, without a doubt, that our supreme creator is the ultimate artist!
