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."

Garner MomCoastal Virginia5 Stars Out Of 5Great Devotional for HusbandJanuary 9, 2015Garner MomCoastal VirginiaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My 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 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.
