Religion - Christian Life
I have a secret, and it seems almost blasphemous to put it in words and say it out loud, but my schnauzers help me understand a little bit of God’s character. Not that we are God’s pets, but their devotion, obedience (and disobedience), dependence (and fleeing out the door for independence) give me insight into how God must love and receive pleasure from us. James Robison showed me that there truly is an acceptable way to see the parallels of Truth in those treasured moments with my schnauzers when he quotes his friend, “If you can’t see God in everything, you won’t see God in anything.”
In his book God of All Creation: Life Lessons from Pets and Wildlife, Robison shares poignant stories of his little Princess, a devoted dachshund who is always reminding him of eternal truths and giving illustration to the clear revelation of God’s love for us. He sprinkles in other stories of wildlife to show how God would have us relate with each other and give us perspective as we live out each day to its fullness for His glory.
The devotional-style book contains 28 short chapters of light reading with easy-to-grasp theological truths expressed in a simple manner. While Robison’s writing style tends to lean toward being a bit preachy in parts, this book is a delightful read.
