Review: Israel – God’s Heart by Ron Gafni & Kathleen Barrett

Israel

This book is packed with stunninng photographs of Israel and combined with Bible verses and commentary which bring even more meaning to the images. I was very impressed with the wide variety of photos contained in this book. Photos showing the packed city from an ariel view contrast with agricultural and animal photos. Rich farmland vies with breathtaking desertscapes. Some of the photographs that really grabbed my attention were the ones of the Dead Sea. Wow! Breathtaking views of it in this book.

While the book was a bit smaller than what I would typically consider a coffee table book to be, I actually am very happy with the size. It is easy to hold and flip through and can be stored in my bookcase much easier than a larger book. I am looking forward to reading this with my children.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
