This is not just another book of meditations.

This is a book which promises to engage all of your senses while vividly illustrating what it really means to be human.

Through the use of scripture, stunning artworks, original songs and prayers, the author explores the miracle of being human, in the image of God.

This is not  just a series of Bible-study lessons or a devotional exercise to begin or round off the day:

  • The songs included are for singing;
  • The artworks are for imaginative viewing;
  • The scripture translations and prayers are meant to be read aloud and heard.

This book is meant to be used humanly. It is meant to be enjoyed in the living presence of God, as a listening, sinful saint, sharing its truth with neighbours.
