This was a beautiful book and I loved being able to come across an artist who I never heard of yet enjoyed the paintings. Carl Brenders has some beautiful and breath-taking artwork that does this book more justice since he is able to get down to the very detail whether it is hair, tree grain, sand or the bubbling froth of the oceans while making it so realistic that you can almost imagine that it is a picture you are looking at.

The best thing I thought about this book was the Table of Contents. Unlike some other art books that include pieces without their name the book's Contents gives you the name of the piece and then also the title of poet and poem if one is shared on the page with it for easy access. The ones that are left out from the Contents is of course Bible verse and quotes.

And finally I loved how the quotes and the Bible verses plus the poetry within the book was used to balance the artwork that was given. Each quote, poem or verse related either to the animal subject or the title of the piece while tying in with either nature, Creation or both.

This is definitely one coffee table book that will catch and hold the eye, especially for nature-lovers or Christians who need a bit of inspiration from the natural world around them. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801011981, Hardcover)

Just one glimpse of the exquisite paintings in this volume will draw readers into the wonders of the natural world. The meticulously detailed paintings of Carl Brenders, one of the world's most sought-after nature painters, combine with classic Christian poetry and quotations from Scripture and church leaders to form a rich source of inspiration for readers of all ages. These thirty-six wildlife illustrations are so realistically rendered they appear to be photographs. Brenders paints in the artistic tradition of John James Audubon and stands as equal beside such distinguished contemporaries as Roger Tory Peterson. The accompanying poems and quotations, taken from Christian writers throughout the ages, remind readers of God's purpose and order.

This lovely book is the perfect gift for young and old, for those who love art and those who love nature. It is a masterful celebration of God's handiwork that brings into focus the beautiful world in which he has placed us.
