About the book: The most fundamental questions in our lives—questions about where we came from, why we are here, and where we are gonig—are answered when we have a true understanding of the plan of salvation. Now, our understanding is deepened and enlivened by this beautifully illustrated depiction of God's eternal plan for His children. In her unique, richly textured style, fine artist Annie Henrie offers a visual interpretations of the plan of salvation, including pre-earth life, the Creation, the Fall of Adam and Eve, life on earth, the spirit world, the Atonement and the Resurrection, and the kingdoms of glory. Accompanied by text from the scriptures, each exquisite image testifies of God's love for us and of His plan of happiness.
My review: This book is just beautiful! We used this book as part of a Family Home Evening lesson that our oldest daughter taught a couple of weeks ago and everyone agreed that the pictures in it are fabulous. I loved the way that there is a picture and scripture for every stage of the plan of happiness. I loved how God's plan for his children is portrayed through beautiful picture and perfect scriptures so even young children can learn of God's love for them.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
