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.

The 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.

My Thoughts:

Israel-God’s Heart is a photographic journey with some beautiful and stunning pictures. The full color photographs are accompanied by the description, a bit of history or interesting details, along with Bible verses.  Since most people may not be able to visit this Biblical, historical, and cultural-rich country- this book vicariously takes us on a trip of a lifetime. From modern architecture to historical ruins, the Old and New Testament lands are shown in vivid detail.

This would make a great coffee table book or a book to go along with your Bible study. I found it also a very educational and unique way for even children to learn about and “see” Israel. My ten year old son was enamored with this book and his favorite picture was on page 75 of the iconic Azrieli Towers. This is definitely a keeper for your shelves and worth many viewing opportunities.

I received a complimentary copy of this book through Litfuse Publicity. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.
