“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
God of All Creation recounts how a miniature dachshund taught her owner, James Robison, profound insights about life, faith, and God’s care for all of His creation. A devoted dog lover and co-host of the television program Life Today, James shares how the antics of his own dog, Princess, as well as observations from all animals
in creation, reveal “expressions of God’s love, lessons of His grace, warnings about sin, and other eternal truths.”
Heart-warming stories and winsome line drawings bring to life the lessons James has learned from his pets and creatures living in the wild. And through his inspiration and spiritual insights, you, too, will learn to know God’s voice, to submit to Him, and to trust Him with your every need.
“I love that James did this book!” —BETH MOORE

“You are about to read some poignant lessons we can learn from pets and all creatures—a clear revelation of the love God has for each of us. I share what I’ve learned as I’ve watched, held, and loved our little Princess and as I’ve watched wild animals in nature. Only a God who truly loves us as individuals could bless us with such treasured moments with our pets and wildlife, if we will just take notice…
“A friend once said, ‘If you can’t see God in everything, you won’t see God in anything.’ In this book we will explore…eternal truths as we consider our pets and other awesome residents of God’s vast creation.”

My take on this book:
I have always loves stories that revolve around animals so this book was right up my alley. I found the author's writing style totally pulled me into this book, from the beginning when he meets his Princess, a dachshund  at a feed store and his wife Betty decides they don't have time for a dog. Their grandchildren quickly change their minds and they come home with Princess. The author shares the lessons he learns from his beloved little dog. The heartwarming stories are filled with scripture refrence and are sometimes funny, sometimes soul touching, but overall I was reminded of God's unconditional love.It was easy to see as I read the chapters that the author truly has a love for all animals.  Anyone who enjoys stories that revolve around animals will certainly enjoy this quick read, but anyone looking for a spiritual boost that not only makes you feel better for having read the story, but also touch you spiritually then you're in for a treat with "God of All Creation."

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
