This powerful, thought provoking book inspires as it amazes. Both scripturally and scientifically, Mr. Russell shows how the secrets of our universe are intimately connected with light and how light remarkably unlocks the truth about all things.
While the author skillfully weaves his way through scripture and countless scientific theories, we can’t help but realize that God is light, that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was the light of the world, and that we are children of light. And at every point of our reading journey through this book, we see the true vastness of creation.
The book is set up invitingly, and the remarkable parallels of Sonlight and sunlight are clearly expressed. One seldom finds a scientific, Christian book so deeply researched and so well written. I would definitely recommend this book.

Amazon review (5-stars):
It more than met our expectations!! The author is a former engineer who has studied 'light' for many years. He brilliantly shows how the God who created physical light also provides 'light' into our souls for eternity. You won't want to put the book down.

PRE-PUBLICATION REVIEWER COMMENTS
"First there was Tozer with The Knowledge of the Holy, and then Packer gave us Knowing God, and now Russell has taken us further with God Light.
"There is a tremendous need for a book on this subject. We have witnessed the publication of many books around the statement 'God is Love,' but I cannot recall ever seeing one around the statement 'God is Light.' It is important that these two attributes of God be brought into conjunction with each other because it is really impossible to discuss love intelligently without understanding light."
~ Dr. Earl D. Radmacher, General Editor, Nelson Study Bible/New King James Study Bible
"This is truly amazing. I marvel at the wisdom God has given you and the talent to put it on paper in a meaningful/fascinating way. I have anything but a scientific mind! I found myself saying out loud, 'Wow, that's amazing,' many times. I worked through the technical only to be thrilled by the application at the end of each chapter. The parallel of God and His Son to the sun is brilliant! I know it’s in God's Word but you have brilliantly explored His message and made it meaningful to an 'un-brilliant' person such as myself!
"You have opened my eyes to the light around me. Yesterday, as I looked at the clouds casting shadows on the earth, I thought of the truths you have taught me. I look at ordinary things differently. I have already used many of the truths in my mentoring and find myself sharing your thoughts in everyday conversation.
"This is so rich! ... This is great! ... Wonderful! ... Mind boggling to say the least! ... Great material for discussion! ... Application pieces are truly inspired!"

COMMENTS ABOUT EARLIER VERSIONS
"He obviously is hitting on all twelve cylinders! What an exciting insight into Christ as the light of the world. Thank God for people like this who have the background to illuminate some of these Biblical concepts."
~ Dr. Joe Aldrich, President, MultnomahBibleCollege & Biblical Seminary
"I was utterly fascinated... I am impressed with the work that you have done, with the directionality it has... I do believe that you have an important message which could be greatly used of the Spirit of God in the world today both among the Christian community and in pre-evangelism of the world."
~ Dr. Ronald Barclay Allen, Senior Professor of Bible Exposition, Dallas Seminary
'It is must reading."
~ Richard C. Halverson, Chaplain, U.S. Senate
"The content is terrific... This is a timely book... There is so much content that many other books and articles could be written from small parts of it."
~ Dr. Freeman L. Schmitt, Senior Pastor
"I got so involved in the subject and read with such great interest that I had trouble reading it critically for accuracy."
~ Maury J. Merrick, Light Consultant & Optics Professor
"I find it most inspirational. I can't profess to knowing anything of physics, never having studied the subject: but the explicit way in which you describe it all – I feel I am able to understand... You make the reader think, and that is a great talent."
~ Evelyn Cox, homemaker
"I loved the book God Light! ... It is very well written and very understandable. Without seeming condescending or talking down to anyone he gets the point across. The Josh McDowell book, Evidence That Demands a Verdict, is good too... as soon as I finish it I plan on reading God Light again. It's definitely the better of the two."
