Inside Indescribable Sneak Peek.

What I Thought:
This devotional is unique and definitely gets you thinking. The science is enjoyable to read about and the topics engaging. I even learned stuff while reading the devotions to my kids! The author does, however, take a very literal view of the Bible which at times can take interesting twists and turns with the "facts". For example the 3rd devotion talks about how dragons were real and mentioned in the bible because of a scripture in Job. This might be stretching it a bit, but the scriptures do make you wonder what they could have been talking about.

The book is very nicely printed. The text is a bit small for my youngest, but still readable. The illustrations are adorable. The full color photos add depth to the awesome facts about science as well.

My kids and I loved reading these devotions and learning about both science and faith. I agree with the author that God is an unparalleled creator with an exhaustive imagination. Indescribable: 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science  This would be a fabulous resource for homeschool, Sunday School, and other Christian Schools/Programs.
