Rev. Dr. John Stott had an international ministry as a preacher and scholar. He was the author of more than thirty-five books, including Basic Christianity and Understanding the Bible.
The Birds, Our Teachers: Biblical Lessons from a Lifelong Bird-Watcherby John Stott
In this unique and intriguing book, John Stott takes seriously Jesus's exhortation in the Sermon on the Mount, "Behold the fowls of the air" (Matt. 6:26 KJV). He reveals lessons on faith from the feeding of ravens, on repentance from the migration of storks, on freedom from the flight of the eagle, on joy from the song of the lark, and more. Stott humorously calls his work "an introduction to the science of orni-theology," for he combines information about birds with biblical truths and personal anecdotes in a way that will fascinate bird-lovers and Bible readers everywhere.
The Birds, Our Teachers is lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs taken by the author in his travels around the world. Sure to thrill bird-lovers and Stott fans alike, this collector's edition includes a DVD of Stott's trip to the Falkland Islands and an audio version of the text.
