An invitation to know and be known by God. Putting this powerful message into print for the first time, visionary pastor Louie Giglio and songwriter Matt Redman team up to write a heart-stirring book about the mysteries of God's creation. Indescribable takes listeners on a journey through the vastness of outer space and into the depths of the soul. Modern science allows us to see farther into space than ever before, and every step draws us closer to the God who breathed each star into existence. In Indescribable, the authors intertwine devotional insights with remarkable scientific facts that awaken both mind and spirit. As Giglio and Redman say, God turns wonderers into worshippers. Above all, Indescribable is a call to worship- an invitation to know and be known by the God of all creation and to become more passionate worshippers of Jesus Christ.
Unabridged audio CD; 2 CDs; narrated by Jon Gauger.
This captivating audio book brings together devotional insight, scientific thought, and magnificent images of the universe. The psalmist sang that the “heavens declare the glory of God” (19:1). Throughout this stunning audio, Louie Giglio and Matt Redman join in that very same song—noting just how powerfully the wonders of the cosmos can speak to us of the majesty and mercy of our Maker.
Louie Giglio is a pastor, an award-winning author, and the founder of Passion, a global movement inspiring people to live for God’s glory. His astronomy-themed talks, Indescribable and How Great Is Our God, have been seen by millions of people around the world. Louie and his wife, Shelley, live in Atlanta. Matt Redman is a songwriter and the author of several books, including Mirror Ball. Among his well-known songs are “Blessed Be Your Name” and “The Heart of Worship.” Matt and his wife, Beth, have five children and live on the south coast of England.
Pastor Giglio and songwriter Redman narrate this audio edition of their exploration of religious devotion, astronomy, and God. Giglio--perhaps in an attempt to compensate for the lack of full-color photographs of cosmic entities contained in the print edition--offers up an enthusiastic reading, very often sounding much like an awestruck child. At times, this one-note performance becomes a little grating, but, at its best, Giglio's passion and how he believes astronomy relates to God's glory is infectious. The British Redman provides more narration reminiscent of a conventional lecture. And while he is not as riveting a reader as his American counterpart, the duo produce an audio that is both fascinating and engaging. A David C. Cook paperback. (Nov.) 2012 Reed Business Information
