What do prime numbers, broken Christmas ornaments, and the speed of light reveal about God? What can champagne bubbles, ambergris, and mulberry trees teach about living a fuller Christian life? These and other fascinating meditations await the curious and truth seekers in "Biblical Reflections: Devotionals from a Different Angle." The author believes that ordinary life is ever surrounded by extraordinary spiritual lessons. Drawing from research into the Bible, science, and history, and occasionally from his personal experience, the author has compiled 52 devotionals designed to spark the souls of anyone interested in learning more about God, His kingdom, and living a fulfilling life for the Lord. Sometimes, the point of the devotion comes like a whiplash jolt ("See Me, Hear Me, Feel Me," "A Precious Vile Mess"); other lessons emerge through warm recollections of personal experiences and relationships ("My Favorite Teacher," "The Split-Second God of the Universe").
