“God of All Creation: Life Lessons from Pets and Wildlife” by James Robinson, book review

Popular “Life Today” host, James Robinson’s pet is a miniature dachshund named Princess. Through this new book, “God of All Creation” Robinson shares lessons he has learned from Princess or through living with her. Each chapter stands alone and tells of a different Biblical truth that this precious little dog has taught the author, without ever saying a word.

Written in an easy to read style, each chapter can easily be used an introduction to a speech or sermon, illustrating a Biblical truth. We all can relate to the dog in the story, or other animal that has crossed the path of Robinson. The book contains many scripture verses and explanations of God’s provision for the animals of His creation.

The book reminded me of “Lessons from a Sheep Dog” by Phillip Keller. Both Keller and Robinson spent a great deal of time with their dogs and saw similarities in their behavior and ours, especially in relationship to God, our creator.

This gift size, hardback book would be a wonderful gift for a dog lover or animal enthusiast, especially a man. Would also be useful for someone who speaks to groups to find illustrations and speech openers. I did not find it the type of book I wanted to sit down and read cover to cover, but rather, a chapter or 2 here and there.
