Praise for God of All Creation

“I love that James did this book!”
—Beth Moore

“Who helps teach James Robison about the things of God? A theologian? A fellow Baptist preacher? A famous radio host? An important senator or governor? Would you believe it’s a small miniature dachshund? In God of All Creation, James delightfully shares the profound truths his little Princess has shown him about life, love, and living with our Master.”
—Ruth Graham, author of In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart and Fear Not Tomorrow, God Is Already There

“Scripture declares that nature offers us a glimpse into God’s power and personality. In The God of All Creation, James Robison beautifully unveils what the creatures around you communicate about you and your Creator. Get ready for a wild adventure!”
—Lisa Bevere, speaker for Messenger International and author of Lioness Arising

“The lessons that James draws from the antics of his beloved mini-dach, Princess, are predictably heartwarming but unpredictably insightful. As a past owner myself of a pair of these preposterously shaped creatures (Harley Davidson and Maximus Decimus), I resonate with the truths James mines from their endearing behavior and the Word of God and am greatly encouraged. I think you will be too.”
—Dr. E. Andrew McQuitty, senior pastor of Irving Bible Church, Irving, Texas

“James loves Jesus. James loves people. And now we have learned that James loves animals. This is a delightful, fun-loving, and, yes, touching read that will appeal to cold and warm noses alike!”
—Kathy Troccoli, recording artist, author, and speaker

Lessons for all of us Dec 3 2012
By Milk Donor Mama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
God of All Creation, by James Robison with James Randall Robison offers lessons about life from the animals of God's kingdom.

For those of us with a pet, we are used to the unconditional love of our companions, much like the unconditional love of God. Observation of the animals in our homes as well as the animals who enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors offers plenty of lessons about living life, faith in others, faith in God and God's command to care for others and be the stewards of the Earth.

While the book focuses on the author's dog, the reader can draw these lessons and observations into his or her own life.

This book was very easy to read, with 28 short chapters with different types of lessons or observations. The only drawback of this book was the redundancy. Perhaps including some other types of animals or more people's experiences could have cut down on that.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion here is entirely my own.

Good book to read! Dec 9 2012
By C. Shaffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I chose to rate this book at 5 stars for the way Mr. Robinson uses God's creation of animals with bringing them into a better light along with man and God's word. I love animals and the way the writer compared our friends with man is awesome to read and somewhat funny as well. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a better understanding of how God looks at man through his creation with the animal kingdom. Once again in my opinion it is a very good book to read!
Life Lessons From Pets & Wildlife Jan. 16 2013
By Denise M. DiFalco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
When Waterbrook Multnomah Blogging Group extended me the ability to review this fine book, "God of All Creation~Life Lessons From Pets & Wildlife" by James Robinson in exchange for my honest opinions I pounced on this. I awaited in excitement and anticipation because of my personal experiences with our cairn terrier which was given to our family as a gift. My very first reaction when we were given 'Lincoln" was that the last thing we needed was a puppy in our brand new house and I put a struggle up during the first few weeks. My patient spouse on the other hand was like a school boy voting for the dog and trying to get me to see his side. Long story short, I became physically limited in the last few years and many days I am in dier pain and the one thing I can count on daily to lift my spirits is our pet, Lincoln. He took a liking to me right away and would follow me like a little sheep and cry when I wasn't in sight for him. I could never figure how he latched onto me, the only one who really didn't want him but Oh what love and loyalty. It didn't take him too long to melt my heart and now he is constantly at my side and momma's boy. Nobody can tell me that pets don't know when you are sick or down because they do...he is a constant source of joy and I can't imagine life without him. James Robison compares our love of our pets to God's love for us in a very sweet way throughout the pages of the book. The author goes on to say that '" If a dog can be trained to act according to it's purpose and not get sidetracked , how much more than should we learn to live the kind of life God designed for us?"' This is the underlying thought throughout God of Creation and the author gives us numerous examples of how well each animal species obeys it's call. l found delight reading and learning much about God's creation. The illustrations are stellar. Yes, I would highly recommend especially for pet lovers.
A New Point of View on God's Creation Dec 28 2012
By Kaitlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I picked up this book because I am unashamedly an animal lover. Even more so, I am a devoted dog lady. Dogs are my thing. And after my dog passed away a few months ago, I needed some encouragement - and a biblical view of how God looks upon all of His creation.

That's *exactly* what I received. I put off reading this book because I was afraid there would be many tears, but it was quite the opposite. I laughed as Robison retold stories of his beloved Princess, remembering instances when my pets have done similar things.

I am truly blown away by Robison's wisdom. To look upon the lowliest creatures on this earth and learn more about God's character and heart - it's remarkable. This book reads like a devotion, so you can easily do one chapter a day for 28 days. Each lesson / chapter spoke to my heart, and not just because I love animals but because I love the Lord and I want to grow in my knowledge of Him.

Here is one particular passage that struck me (in a good way). It is about God's endless and relentless pursuit of His children:

Every day when I awaken, I want to run as fast as Princess does to jump into God's lap, look into His eyes, and stay close to His heart. This brings our heavenly Father great pleasure and gives me indescribable comfort, peace, and security. As Princess lies with her paws resting on my chest, her long ears perk up, and she waits for me to speak to her. I know she can't understand my words, but I believe she senses the love I have for her. I do know that when I speak these loving words, she listens. I also know that when we learn to hear the Lord, He will speak words of encouragement and affection to us. (11)

So as you book lovers put together your book lists for 2013, make sure this one goes on your list. It is certainly a must-read!
You're Loved More Than the Sparrows! Dec 27 2012
By Andrew Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
God of All Creation is about the love of God found through the touch of pets and their unconditional love. James Robison and Betty Robison have a miniature dachshund named Princess. Through watching his lovely dog, he has learned that God has the best interests in mind for us. He will chase us even when we choose to try and run from his leading and calling. Princess loves to hunt and chase deer, rabbits, armadillos, badgers, and squirrels. James doesn't care if Princess wants to chase rabbits and squirrels because they can't hurt her. He also has witnessed how he wants to be good to Princess and he loves riding her around in his truck. God revealed to him and made recall how his children longed to do good because good was good and it was how they were raised. God has given us His word to display how he desires us to live and love.

I immensely connected with the animal fable James Robison shared about a wolf getting caught in a trap. A human found the wolf but the wolf refused to receive help from a human. He could have rescued him and saved his life but he couldn't bring himself to trust a human. This story is told to convey how much Jesus wants us in Heaven with Him. But in the end, it comes down to us choosing to believe in Christ. He won't force us into a relationship with Him.

I would recommend this fantastic novel to anyone who is an enormous pet lover. If you enjoy loving on pets of all kinds then this book will benefit you and you will be able to get a lot from it. I have grown up loving dogs and have had four dogs through my lifetime so far (I'm only twenty-two) and will most likely continue. It will assist you in learning about how much God truly loves His people. Each of the stories is about four pages long and can be read like a devotional. This book would make a great gift for anyone who enjoys nature and pets. God truly loves you and wants the best for you this book is a great reminder of that.
