Israel: Beauty, Light, and Luxury by Tara-Leigh Cobble

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Come discover the land of Jesus. It will transform the way you read your Bible.

Israel abounds with beauty. It is vibrant and thriving, stacked with delicacies and flooded with light. The desert is blooming and people are flourishing--just as Scripture promised. To the surprise of many, Israel is far more than deserts and ruins.

Pairing 31 rich devotionals with 350 gorgeous photos of Israel today, Tara-Leigh Cobble, creator of 
The Bible Recap, takes you on an unforgettable journey through the Holy Land. Since 2014, she has led boutique teaching tours of the country, learning its landscapes and stories. Glimpse Israel's features, flora, and people, all while making deeper connections with its biblical stories and truth.

Tara-Leigh Cobble's ( is the creator and host of the daily The Bible Recap podcast, which has garnered more than 230 million downloads. She is also the founder of D-Group, an international network of more than 300 discipleship and Bible study groups that meet each week, and the host of a daily radio feature called The God Shot. Tara-Leigh lives in Dallas, Texas.

This year, I have been enjoying The Bible Recap with Tara-Leigh Cobble. I have found it such a wonderful and insightful way to dig deeper into the Bible and I have discovered things that I have not known about/thought about in the past. When I saw this book by the same author, I just knew I had to have it, even though this type of coffee table book isn't generally something that I would go for. 

Still, I have to say this book is absolutely breathtaking. These pictures are stunning, and I can't help but to want to sit down and look through each and every one. There are stories throughout (and they're great, and super quick to read here and there), but the pictures are definitely the stars of the book. This is such a unique addition to my little library, allowing readers to travel to Israel within its pages. If you enjoy books with beautiful photography, this is one worth checking out.
