When I consider your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place, 
 what is mankind that you are mindful of them, 
    human beings that you care for them?  Psalm 8:3-4

To see God all you have to do is look up.  Louie Giglio and Matt Redman's book, Indescribable, takes you on a journey through the universe with God as the central focus.  Not only do you learn about the stars, galaxies, sun and moon, you also get devotional thoughts on God and His relationship with us. There is also beautiful photography of galaxies and stars with mind-boggling facts about them.  I loved this book so much that in January I will be using it with my boys (soon-to-be 13 and 17 years old).  I will read through the chapters with them while they are memorizing Psalm 8.

Here are just a few excerpts from the book to give you a taste of Louie and Matt's writing {They take turns writing the chapters.}

Worship has no room from "know-it-alls". The soul who lives in the ordinary and the mundane will rarely aspire to climb higher in praise.  And reverence for God will never flow freely from a heart that shrinks Him down to earthly proportions.  God makes worshippers out of wonderers.

The world was so intrigued by the universe that it sent a space shuttle. God so loved the world that He beat us to it and launched His own mission, sending His only Son.

In that single act, the star breather became the sin bearer.

What an awesome God we serve!  Indescribable reveals the magnitude of God and His love for us.  Well worth the read!
