Publisher's Description

Stott’s labor of love

Biblical lessons from a lifelong bird watcher

John Stott traces his lifelong love of bird-watching back to boyhood country walks with his father, who told him to shut his mouth and open his eyes and ears. Because of these lessons in observation, Stott learned to carry his binoculars and camera with him wherever he travels. In this unique and intriguing book, he takes seriously Jesus’ exhortation on the Sermon on the Mount, "Behold the fowls of the air" (Matt. 6:26). He reveals lessons on faith from the feeding of ravens, on repentance from the migration of storks, on freedom from the flight of the eagle, on joy from the song of the lark and more.

Illustrated with full-color photographs taken by the author in his travels around the world, The Birds Our Teachers combines information about birds with biblical truths and personal anecdotes that will fascinate bird-lovers and Bible readers.

DVD includes audio-visual footage from Stott’s trip to the Falkland Islands, as well as a separate audio book track. Stott calls his work "an introduction to the science of orni-theology."

Author Bio

Rev. Dr. John Stott had an international ministry as a preacher and scholar. He was the author of more than thirty-five books, including Basic Christianity and Understanding the Bible.

    My husband is not a devotional reader, but he loves birds. I am a devotional reader, and I love John Stott. There has been no better way to introduce the love of my life to both devotionals and John Stott than through this book and DVD. I could not be more pleased. We walk each morning before going our separate ways and several mornings the topic of conversation has been something he learned from this book.

    I loved this book! I love the detail in which Stott has studied both birds and the Scripture, and how he melds the two together in such practical and thoughtful ways! Excellent buy, and a beautiful book inside and out!

    The book and the DVD are exactly the same. I expected to watch movie or clips about the behavior of the birds. But what I saw were old still pictures. If I could return the book, I would have returned it but because it was a book with dvd, I could not return it. Also, I misplaced my receipt.
