Messages from God: An Illuminated Devotional (Hard Cover)

Kathleen Schwab & Therese Kay

Messages from God "Messages from God: An Illuminated Devotional is a collection of inspired devotional readings combined with visual photographic imagery to create a beautiful reading experience. Each reading in the book can stand alone or you can use the book as a five week devotional, either for yourself or a group. The visual nature of this book makes it perfect to keep on a coffee table, open at random, and be blessed by the words and the beauty of the images.

We have integrated imagery, typography, layout, and inspired words written from the perspective of Jesus to create a devotional reading experience similar to the illuminated manuscripts of the medieval church. The visual aspect of the book is designed to allow the reader to be more contemplative in their reading. Each reading is accompanied by a photograph and other visual elements designed to enhance the message of the text. Additionally, each week ends with a list of questions for reflection, journaling, or group discussion.

Messages from God speaks to the reader because it includes all the lows and highs of life. Each week is a step on a journey that begins with the concerns of managing day-to-day life, and ends with a transcendent vision of heaven. Organized into five sections - Daily Life, Experiencing God, Living in a Broken World, God Transforms Us, and Heading for Heaven - Messages from God ministers through both language and visual beauty.

Here is an excerpt of the text, written from the perspective of Jesus:

My kingdom expands the deeper you travel. You moved in deep, and expected to find eventually a sheltered and safe haven, a fireside to rest beside. Instead, My kingdom has open vistas, wide horizons, untamed wild and lovely places, where humans rarely venture. Sometimes I walk alone there, but I hope to draw some of My dear ones in. My Kingdom is the opposite of the natural world: the largest spaces are in the center. The further into Me you travel, the larger My kingdom becomes. The whole tree really is inside a seed. In the case of My kingdom, a whole forest, a whole world."
