A Light in Dark Places Book Description :

In shadows of our understanding, references align within the need for our own personal space. As we are destined to be accompanied by the presence of the light we exist, portraits will be considered by the terms we transpose, and indeed, the light cast within paths of our own reflection, incorporated within familiarity of the bonds we consign. Within the shadowed light of indifference, some may accept themselves over others and anyand all particularsby which they would wish themselves to be understood. In all fairness to the light of the company we keep, it should be of notice to ourselves that all makes and models participate within expression of the light we exist and indeed in entertainment of any thoughts that transpire reference to particularity...

Seeing in the Dark Book Description :

Christians are supposed to be “the light of the world.” Yet we seem to spend most of our time stumbling in the dark. We want answers carved in stone, and instead we get uncertainty. We want a clearly marked path and a panoramic view of the future, and God gives us only fleeting glimpses of what lies ahead—and just enough light to take the next step. So what do we do? We take the next step. In her much anticipated follow-up to Looking for God, Nancy Ortberg takes readers on a journey that began thousands of years ago. From an ancient cave in Turkey to the California coast, Nancy highlights the often unexpected, sometimes imperceptible, yet always extraordinary means God uses to light our way through even the most painful and challenging moments ...

The End of Night Book Description :

A deeply panoramic tour of the night, from its brightest spots to the darkest skies we have left. A starry night is one of nature's most magical wonders. Yet in our artificially lit world, three-quarters of Americans' eyes never switch to night vision and most of us no longer experience true darkness. In The End of Night, Paul Bogard restores our awareness of the spectacularly primal, wildly dark night sky and how it has influenced the human experience across everything from science to art. From Las Vegas' Luxor Beam -- the brightest single spot on this planet -- to nights so starlit the sky looks like snow, Bogard blends personal narrative, natural history, science, and history to shed light on the importance of darkness -- what we've lost, what we ...
