Framing Faith

When’s the last time you stopped to watch the wind sway through the majestic trees around you? Or sat down in the middle of a lush green park and enjoyed the laughter of children playing?

Like a photographer or storyteller, Jesus exhibited time and again how easy it is to capture moments of profound importance just by noticing, stopping, and responding to his surroundings. In a world moving way too fast, Framing Faith is a book for people seeking to focus their lives, to find a deeper knowledge of God, and a more authentic Christian faith. In this modern age, many of us fill every “spare” moment we have rather than taking an intermission to see the true works of God and realize that he is present in every moment.

Matt Knisely communicates biblical truths in a fresh way, allowing you to really hear them, as if for the first time. He illustrates a new way to see God and to help us live in the moment through the exploration of various photography concepts, including perspective, composition, processing, and darkness versus light. His probing questions and unexpected presentation lead readers into a place of honest self-examination, causing them to ask, “Am I listening to God?” Framing Faith provokes its readers toward reflection; it reveals God is in everything we see and do.

“Like a great photographer, Matt shows us things we might miss even standing next to him — important things that help us connect the seemingly unconnected and lead us to a better life. His wonderful book lights the way.”– Bob Dotson, NBC News & New York Times Best Selling Author
