Thanks for stopping by the blog for another book review! This book is a little different from I normally review because the focus is on the beautiful photography. But before you dive in here is the not so fun part of my legal disclaimer.
Disclaimer: I was given a complimentary copy of this book for me to read and review here with my readers. All reviews and opinions are all my own and 100 percent my own.
About the Book:
My Personal Review:
Israel – God’s Heart, Landscapes and Legacy of Israel is a great coffee table piece that is full of colorful photos. The amazing aerial pictures depict the land we all know as the Holy Land. From fields of blooming flowers, wildlife, the sea shores and the ever-growing cityscapes you will be amazed at the beauty of it all.
I was truly in awe of all the images included in this delightful book. My son and I used it in our homeschool lesson plans one day as a part of our cultural studies and history. We really enjoyed seeing the modern look of the places we have read about in the Bible. I did find myself wishing there were slightly longer narratives for us to read but loved reading everything provided. If you like learning about Israel and well-done photography then I would totally recommend picking up a copy of this book.
