The Things God Made: Explore God’s Creation Through the Bible, Science, and Art by illustrator Andy McGuire has been honored with an Award of Merit from the distinguished magazine Christianity Today as part of its annual Book of the Year awards for 2024 in the Children’s category.
From the award committee:
“Complemented beautifully by breathtaking artwork, the book has captured the staggering awe that the story of our fascinatingly intricate creation deserves. If we have lost our sense of wonder, McGuire aims to rekindle it. Brilliantly infusing expertise with humility, scientific fact with childlike joy, The Things God Made is a delight. I suspect it will lead readers—children and adults alike—one step beyond wonder and straight into worship.”
The book has received high praise from reviewers and families around the world. The book can be purchased here.
