Life Lessons from Pets and Wildlife—the subtitle accurately portrays the basic topic of this book. I would add that they are life lessons for Christians about God, how to hear His voice, how to trust Him and things like that.

From the very beginning I found this book to be delightful to read. I’m sure that is in part because I am an animal lover.

It was also easy to read. No big vocabulary words to stumble over. No deep theological mumbo-jumbo to get confused about. The truths shared were simple, but yet profound.

I also found this book to be “safe” to read. That is, it was not in the least condemnatory. Who wants to feel condemned or guilty? This book is free of that type of talk! Instead it is full of the love of God and His creation. Did I mention it was delightful?

You don’t have to be an animal lover to like this book and get something out of it but I suspect that animal lovers will be more likely to love this book so if you’re an animal lover go out and get yourself your own copy.

It's interesting how our sweet pets are at our mercy to care for them, and yet they seem to teach us a great deal in return. The book starts with an overview of how Princess, a miniature dachshund came into the author's life and in the following chapters we read how their loving relationship continues to evolve with meaningful and valuable character changing lessons. The author makes numerous parallels of his dog's natural instincts, along with wildlife, to our own human tendencies and beautifully weaves scripture throughout the story to give the reader glimpses of our God's shepherd-like heart of love towards people. It's a sweet book, easy to read, with warm pencil drawings. I love books about animals, so naturally I was drawn to this one. Princess has a personality that is delightfully personable and you just want to get to know her better, while reading along. ( )

God of All Creation; Life Lessons from Pets and Wildlife By James Robinson with James Randall Robinson.

With only 160 pages divided amongst 28 chapters it's a small(er) book. At first glance, skimming the pages I see several sketches and lots of bible verses and God references.
“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
"Heartwarming stories and winsome line drawings bring to the 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." ~Taken from the back cover, this paragraph had me excited to read this book. From the very first chapter James jumps right into comparing lessons from pet to God;
"Often times, only my voice keeps Princess ({his mini dachshund}) from getting into trouble. If she listens and obeys, she will come back to the safety and provisions of her home. If not, all manner of trouble awaits............the same is true with people. Really, the question is not weather we will go astray. We will, because it it in our nature to do so. The question is, what we will do when God calls us back to His care? And, even more important, will we know God's voice when He does call?"
Written extremely well, a very easy read, this book stands out amongst all other "life lessons from pets book,". Why? James has a way of taking everything and relating it to God, his creative writing takes a simple thing and relates it so strongly to God, that you can't help but take his word to heart...Each chapter you not only enjoy James's relationship with an animal, but also how that animal can teach you so much about God, His amazing creation, and His love for you.
Being an animal lover I feel like this book has given me a better insight to the love, power, and wonder of God. Though not written as a Christian living book, I feel like this book can easily stand amongst that shelf (as well as the animal shelf).
If you've never read any type of "life lessons from pets" type book, I would advise you start here. A must read for all- even if you're not an animal lover like me, just give this book a chance. ( )
