What are your most treasured Bible verses? The ‘jewels’ in your life? Could you share them with an explanation that is both personal yet inspiring to others - encouraging their own reflection?
Australian photographer, Mal Austin, presents some of his favoured scriptures explaining why, from the heart of a creative believer rather than the mind of a Theologian. It is difficult not to be inspired to embark on a similiar personal exercise.
His stunning close-up images all deliberately contain ‘jewels’ of their own and will amaze at every page turn. They illustrate and emphasise his point that new discoveries are made when things of great value are examined more closely, using a variety of ‘life’s lenses’.
This is more than a beautiful gift book; it is a refreshingly different artwork that is sure to delight and encourage Christians in a similiar illuminating exercise.
