GOD OF ALL CREATION: Life Lessons From Pets & Wildlife by James Robison
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
—MATTHEW 6:26

.
God of All Creation recounts how a miniature dachshund taught her owner, James Robison, profound insights about life, faith, and God’s care for all of His creation. A devoted dog lover and co-host of the television program Life Today, James shares how the antics of his own dog, Princess, as well as observations from all animals
in creation, reveal “expressions of God’s love, lessons of His grace, warnings about sin, and other eternal truths.”
.
Heart-warming stories and winsome line drawings bring to life the lessons James has learned from his pets and creatures living in the wild. And through his inspiration and spiritual insights, you, too, will learn to know God’s voice, to submit to Him, and to trust Him with your every need.

“I love that James did this book!” —BETH MOORE
.
“You are about to read some poignant lessons we can learn from pets and all creatures—a clear revelation of the love God has for each of us. I share what I’ve learned as I’ve watched, held, and loved our little Princess and as I’ve watched wild animals in nature. Only a God who truly loves us as individuals could bless us with such treasured moments with our pets and wildlife, if we will just take notice…
.
“A friend once said, ‘If you can’t see God in everything, you won’t see God in anything.’ In this book we will explore…eternal truths as we consider our pets and other awesome residents of God’s vast creation.”- James Robison
