How Great is Our God: 100 indescribable devotions about God & Science
By Louie Giglio
Kids are very curious little creatures and the amount of questions they have and things they wonder about seems to be endless.
But as a parent (or grandparent, guardian, caregiver, teacher, etc), how do you answer questions to things you do not know answers to yourself? If so much in this world doesn’t make any sense to a sensible adult, then how can we possibly attempt to satisfy the hungry, developing minds of perceptive children?
I’ve been seeking wisdom in my own life while intentionally studying God’s Word to prepare myself for parenting children and raising them into capable, strong, and knowledgeable adults. Still, my children come to me with questions I don’t know the answers to. Questions like, why is the sky blue? Or, what is skin made of? Gosh…being put on the spot makes me consider I did not pay attention in science class or perhaps I really am more clueless than I thought!
Enter – How Great is Our God: 100 indescribable devotions about God & Science by pastor Louie Giglio.
This devotional is hands down the best children’s devotional I have ever read with my children (and trust me, we’ve read quite a few!). What makes it the best, you may ask? Easy – I am learning things alongside my own offspring!
How Great is Our God brilliantly unites God’s Word with His creation. It is applicable to the many questions children have while directing them to the Truth found in God’s Word. Moreover, it is practical and supports that both God and science are real (not either, or) and they not only can, but most often do, work together hand in hand to help us understand the many questions we encounter. Who would have thought? 😉
Geared towards 6 to 10 year olds, How Great is Our God includes a plethora of scientific facts, beautiful photography and amusing illustrations. The topics addressed include earth, weather, space, time, plants, animals and the human body. Each devotional sparked intrigue and conversation amongst my 6 and 9 year old daughters while my 3 year old son enjoyed the images on each page and the takeaway message of each devotional. As the mom and reader of this devotional, I was blown away by the originality of Louie Giglio to write a God/science devotional for children as well as the amount of research involved and included. In my opinion, it is a master blend of the world’s science and biblical Truth.
Life is so much more purposeful when we don’t have to choose between believing in God or believing in science. In a world that rarely makes sense, combining God and science will allow us to make sense of the world.
