Reflections on how God speaks through nature
I have long been a fan of Francine Rivers. She has written some of the most moving and inspiring novels and I’m not alone in my admiration of her work. She is an author of numerous awards. Well-deserved.
Earth Psalms isn’t a novel. It’s a beautiful book for devotional reading. Every one of us is no doubt reminded by nature of the power and creativity of our Creator. This book is Mrs. River’s act of worship, I think. Published by TBN, who kindly gave me a complimentary copy of this book in order to give an unbiased review.
For agriculture crazy girls like me, who also love nature in general and scripture, this is the perfect book for devotions.
Here are a few examples of other pages:
The book is co-written with Karin Stock Buursma who helped with the hymns, quotes, reflections, and applications for connecting with God. I love that Mrs. Rivers, after all her acclaim in the literary world, is still humble enough to have someone work on this project with her. They compliment each other, obviously, because this book is well done.
I keep mine on the coffee table, where I might pick it up in the middle of a hectic day, or a friend visiting might see it and spend a little time in it.
In such crazy busy times, it’s healthy for our bodies, minds, and souls to slow down. Do some deep contemplating, and meditating on the glories of God as reflected in His creation. I’m a believer in slow food, earthing, and living according to seasons and cycles, so this book helps me to appreciate my surroundings more. Living on a ranch bursting with life can be busy, being reminded to sit and take it all in is welcomed.
For those living in cities and suburbs, I would think this book would be especially rich.
In a crazy fast world, this book helps me get quiet, grounded, serene and sane. I am sure you would also enjoy it.
