Many of us only dream of traveling to the Holy Land. Very few, like Israel's top aerial photographer, Ron Gafni, soar above the craggy mountain ranges of Masada, the salty Dead Sea, and the iconic locations where Jesus walked. "Israel - God's Heart - Landscapes and Legacy," beautifully captures the ancient landscapes of this great nation, as well as presents the legacy of God's Redemption plan for the world.
As you slowly turn the pages, you will find unexpected vantage points, such as the Tower of David surrounded by city lights and fast paced cars. And, a hot air balloon floating over a field of cotton. From a bird's eye view, you will also experience a vibrant, bustling, modern Israel. Biblical references and thoughtful narrative, by Author Kathleen Barrett, intertwines with awe inspiring photography to bring you to the Holy Land time and time again.
Israel-God’s Heart is a book filled with beautiful photography of the Holy Lands. I enjoyed getting to see the landscape and scenery—some of which was quite different from I had imagined.
This book would be a wonderful gift for someone planning a trip to Israel or for a photography buff.
I was torn on how to rate and review a pictorial. The pictures—in this instance—tell the story. As a photographer (albeit a hobbyist and not a professional) myself, I enjoyed the beauty and the clarity of these images. I always feel inspired by great photography.
The only reason I’m giving this a 4-star rating is that some of the images needed to be explained. I have never been to Israel and I would have liked to have known more about the topography. Particularly of the more exotic terrain that is unfamiliar to me.
