Breathtaking Photography – Evidence of God’s Creation and Intelligent Design
Award winning author and photographer Don Smarto combines breathtaking magnificent photographs with deeply profound writings addressing questions everyone asks: Where did I come from? Why am I here? Do I have a destiny to fulfill? Is God the Creator of the Universe? What happens after death?
“Heaven in a Wildflower” is formatted with five amazing color pictorials and a thought provoking narrative that takes the reader through the Biblical account of creation: of light, water, plants, animals, and man. The book includes biographical sketches of twenty fascinating personalities, illustrations on structure and design, and ends with meaningful insight into questions pertaining to death and resurrection.
Smarto’s writing is packed with awe inspiring word pictures, incredibly enhanced by color photos taken from twelve major cities within fifteen different countries which include: flowers from the rain forests of New Zealand and animals from jungles of Africa. His color photos of people from around the world reveal a depth of character and personality through their facial expressions, body language, and background settings. Each theme whether narrative or pictorial provides the reader with another opportunity for an awe inspiring worship experience and exploration into faith, philosophy, the arts and science.
Don Smarto’s “Heaven in a Wildflower” has a prominent place on our coffee table. It opens the way for discussion starters for family and friends and as well as with those seeking answers to questions of faith and truth.
Beautifully bound, “Heave in a Wildflower” is ideal for gift giving for any occasion.
