"When you lean far back and look up, you can see the Earth like a beautiful, fragile Christmas tree ornament hanging against the blackness of space...." (Prologue)
Destination: Moon allows readers to see the Earth through astronaut Col. James Irwin's eyes, as he saw it on his journey to the moon. Irwin reaches out to the world with his fame as a space traveler to project the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In his book, you'll gather all sorts of cool and interesting facts about the history of travelling to the moon. Especially you'll learn about Apollo 15, the mission where Irwin himself became the 8th man to touch the lunar surface.
I enjoyed reading Irwin's humbling and inspiring account. Adults and kids alike can benefit from reading this book. It is a good title to use for a school project too.
Now, to leave you with my favorite James Irwin quote...
"Jesus walking on Earth is more important than man walking on the moon."

Destination Moon is a really neat book written by Astronaut James Irwin, the 8th man to walk on the moon. This book is a great balance between Irwin sharing his story and the facts around his voyage. The photos throughout the book are captivating and greatly help show what Irwin experienced. It is great to hear such an amazing story from not only a Christian Scientist, but a Christian Scientist who had the opportunity to do what very few have had the chance to do. What a truly unique book!
I received this book for free from New Leaf Press for this honest review.
