When Ric Ergenbright began his travel career, his passion was seeing and photographing the differences between the world's cultures. But time and experience showed him that human societies are more alike than not. People everywhere laugh when they are happy, cry when they are hurt, and ask the same "big" questions about life. Who am I? Where did I come from? What is my purpose? Does God exist? Is there life after death? How then should I live? In Psalm 8, King David asks the question of the ages: "What is man?" How we answer this all-encompassing question determines how we live as individuals and societies, because our perspective of people, nature, and God is founded on our perception of man. It defines our understanding and expression of love; it governs our rule over the natural world; and it reveals the deity that we worship and serve. From the beginning, God has communicated His truth to man through images and stories of real-life events. Following this example, Ric Ergenbright combines current-day photographs of the worldwide family of man with the historical narrative of man's creation, fall, and redemption to illustrate the eternal relevance and life-changing power of this story, which is for all people of all nations. The Art of God series celebrates God's perfect revelation in all He has made. Blending powerful photographic imagery with eternal biblical truth, it presents a full-orbed expression of the physical and spiritual character of true reality.
Volume Two in The Art of God trilogy, this book is a collection of photographs taken from around the world capturing the lives, struggles, hopes, dreams, and above all, the breathtaking beauty of God's people. Each face shows our humanity and yet illuminates the amazing truth that we are made in the image of God our Father.
2005 Gold Medallion Award finalist ^Blending powerful photographic imagery with eternal biblical truth, "The Image of God" considers man as he is portrayed in the Bible. Combining 160 full-color photographs with 70 Bible display verses, a rich story-driven text, and complete photographic and cultural notes, this exquisite coffee-table book presents a powerful witness to the abundant life that God intends for all mankind.
Ergenbright's photography appears regularly in major magazines, books, and ads. He has received the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding photography and was among the select number of contemporary photographers represented in the worldwide tour of the exhibit Odyssy: The Art of Photography at National Geographic.
