John Stott traces his lifelong love of bird-watching back to boyhood country walks with his father, who told him to shut his mouth and open his eyes and ears. Stott learned to carry his binoculars and camera with him in his travels. In this unique and intriguing book, Stott takes seriously Jesus' exhortation in the Sermon on the Mount to, Behold the fowls of the air (Matt 6:26). He reveals lessons on faith from the feeding of the ravens, on repentance from the migration of storks, on freedom from the flight of the eagle, on joy from the song of the lark and more. The Birds Our Teachers combines the hobby of bird-watching with biblical truths and personal anecdotes that will fascinate bird-lovers and Bible readers.
