“A Remarkable Work”

~ Book Review of “God Light” by Writer’s Digest~

 
Reproduced immediately below is one of the independent book reviews “God Light” has received.
 
 
21st Annual Writer’s Digest Annual Self-Published Book Awards
 
Entry Title: GODLIGHT: Sunlight Sonlight
Author: Robert Lloyd Russell
Judge Number: 23
Entry Category: Inspirational
 
Books are evaluated on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 meaning “needs improvement” and 5 meaning “outstanding.”  
Structure and Organization:  5
Grammar:  5
Production Quality and Cover Design:  5
 
Judges Commentary:
 
The author has identified and written on an aspect of God, the Bible and faith that is rarely a focal point, and he has come up with a remarkable work that captures the many, many parallels between what sunlight does for the physical world and what Sonlight (Godlight) does for our spiritual selves. 
 
He has done a great job in laying this out in a form that allows the reader to ride along on the journey of this work—we know that God tells us “you are the light of the world” but our understanding has traditionally been with regard to sharing our faith in God and witnessing to others. 
 
The beauty of this work is that it doesn't relate only to our outward reflection of Godlight but leads us to a deeper understanding of what it is—by taking our long-standing grasp of what sunlight is and its relationship to us physically and our physical world and gives us an “aha” moment of understanding how Sonlight (Godlight) performs remarkably similar functions in our spiritual life and on our faith journey. 
 
He clearly is someone mature in his faith and the text resonates with his deep intimacy with Biblical scripture and his ability to draw these commonalities into an easily-understood book with deep meaning, a balance which isn’t easy to achieve.  Very illuminating!
