Gorgeous! Israel - God's Heart: Landscapes and Legacy of Israel - by Ron Gafni & Kathleen Barrett
Israel-God's Heart: Landscapes and Legacy of Israel
(Skypics Israel, November 2016)
Soar across the skies of beautiful Israel and visit contemporary and historic sites beckoning visitors to stay and explore.
beauty of Israel from above is captured by top aerial photographer Ron
Gafni. As you sweep over ancient ruins, fly high in hot air balloons,
and view vignette's of Israel's modern lifestyles, Holy scripture will
also come alive. Author Kathleen Barrett offers reflective narrative
with scripture pointing to God's redemption plan for the world.
This is an absolutely gorgeous book! The pictures are breathtaking and it's amazing to see these historical sites from a bird's-eye-view. I was actually able to visit Israel a couple of years ago and it was very cool to see some of these sites again, but from a different viewpoint. There was also a lot of beautiful scenery and some photos of modern life. I would love to be able to have some of these pictures blown up on my wall. The devotional thoughts tied in to some of the pictures and were short and to the point. The thoughts that stood out to me were on leaving a legacy and freedom in Christ. They made a nice addition, but the photography was really the main focus. I would highly recommend this book if you like photography.
I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
