It’s impossible to out-imagine God. He orchestrates time, creates light, and speaks things into existence—from the largest stars to the smallest starfish. God is a powerful, purposeful, personal, unparalleled Creator.
Indescribable displays the majesty of creation with scientific findings, photography, and original illustrations.
I love the crazy detail on this cover. There’s so much to look at, and the longer I look, the more I love it. The style is fabulous and bright as well. It’s the kind of picture I’d love to see in puzzle format (*hint* at Tommy Nelson).
This is a great example of excellent cover design. The art and text treatment work together very well – one is not compromised for the other in spite of very detailed, bright artwork. The title is large, clear, and very legible. I also love the monkey hanging off the words.
The inside artwork is excellent as well, though simpler. This book is designed for a middle school audience, so text takes prominence. The artwork is a very nice accent though, and does a great job of illustrating the lesson on each spread. There are also photographs throughout where relevant to illustrate scientific concepts.
This is a great gift for a budding scientist. It touches on all sort of topics – ranging from dragons to planets to quarks and magnets. The text is well-written and easy to understand, though it provides an appropriate challenge for its intended audience. At 200+ pages, this book is a great resource for teachers and kids alike. I even learned a thing or two as I thumbed through it.
