Large heavy book that will shipped securely boxed and bubble wrapped.
This is VOLUME ONE of a two volume set published by Rand McNally from the Institute in Basic Youth Conflicts. Divided into seven parts, the work is a compilation of character sketches from the pages of scripture and illustrated in the world of nature. The chapters or "parts" of the book are; Loyalty, Responsibility, Courage, Determination, Orderliness, Initiative, and Decisiveness. It includes a complete index on scripture references. The illustrations throughout are suburb and demonstrate nature in reference to the chapters and scripture reference. Examples would be the beautiful illustration of a Grizzly bear that illustrates loyalty in following desires. Or, the superb illustrations of the woodchuck who illustrates orderliness by organizing its resources. Characteristics of the bear, woodchuck or animal featured include their habitat and routines that demonstrate the principles of the chapter with additional illustrations and line drawings. Readers will learn how the raccoon (also delightfully illustrated) shows the need for caution when exploring areas of interest. And do you know how the red fox illustrates decisiveness in making accurate evaluations? It is completely detailed with characteristics and physical features of the red fox.
This is an exquisite portrait of nature in relation to scripture that is complete, thoughtful, detailed and finely illustrated throughout. The illustrations are extensive and relate the subject matter in an incredible manner.
