Book Review

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

Apostle John’s statement in I John 1:5, “God Is Light”, intrigued this author enough to start questioning just what John really meant by these three words. Having studied physical light, Robert Russell started to understand that some of the characteristics of physical light help us to understand God’s nature and give us new meaning to the phrase in I John. Therefore Russell writes this book giving us parallels between natural physical light and spiritual light to help us understand what the real meaning of this three-word phrase is. "God is Light" is chock-full of information about how God is Light. It is in three parts: 'Sunlight Sonlight Attributes', showing us the character of God; 'Sunlight Sonlight of the World', an overview of light in scriptures; and 'Sunlight Sonlight Interactions', application to what we have learned. I have heard this phrase all of my life, and I never dreamed of it being so involved and never bothered to know what this is all about.

This book is very well-written and formatted. At the end of each chapter, the Sunlight\Sonlight parallels are explained, and there is a Think and Grow section with a few questions to answer. "God Light" could easily be used as a personal Bible study, or a study for small groups or Sunday school class. Though there is a lot of information, on account of the way the book is written, it is easy to read and understand. Each chapter is pretty short so that it can be read and discussed in one sitting. I highly recommend "God Light" to help with any type of Bible study.
