How Great Is Our God: 100 Indescribable Devotions About God and Science by Louie Giglio & illustrated by Nicola Anderson

My thoughts:  Children's devotionals often are a compilation of Bible stories or portions of Bible stories and the lessons they teach on a level young children can understand. While learning about the key stories in the Bible and how we can learn to live our lives for God is important, it is quite refreshing to have a children's devotional that shows the child how the science of this world in which they are living connects them to the God of the Bible who is the Author and Creator of all things.

From learning how the butterfly is designed with "dust," that is actually scales, on their wings to how there is a design on their wings that tells predators they are poisonous.

Or in the devotional about God being our strong rock and fortress, the focus is on how we think the ground beneath our feet is solid and strong, yet it is constantly changing and can actually fail us in the form of sinkholes and other collapses. God is strong and never fails us.

I think this devotional will draw children to a closer relationship with God and that they will gain an understanding and appreciation for the World and Universe that God has created. I found it nice, too, that an index in the back of the book will help children locate these salient facts for when they wish to refer back to them. The Table of contents has cute, catchy titles.

I highly recommend.

About the book: Show the children in your life the awe-inspiring connection between the natural world and the God who created it.
