Reviews

"Luci Shaw presents a wonderful meditation on how beauty arises from our interaction with nature as an act of divine creation and our own acts of creativity as God's image-bearers, both by true acts of love. In fact, this work itself is a work of love and a creative engagement in the nature of beauty and a further demonstration of Shaw's skill as a poet of God's creation."--James M. Turner, Calvin, April 2018
"By the light shed by this book, we are better able to see our own God-imprinted lives as they're marked by penetrating mystery and indelible grace. Turn the page and engage the adventure!"--Susan S. Phillips, Radix, Vol. 39, No. 2
"Shaw's practical book is inspiring and will give readers encouragement. Highly recommended."--CBA Retailers+Resources, April 16, 2016
