Visions of Hope: An Illustrated Portrayal of God’s Plan for Us by Annie Henrie

The most fundamental questions in our lives—questions about where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going—are answered when we have a true understanding of the plan of salvation. Now, our understanding is deepened and enlivened by this beautifully illustrated depiction of God’s eternal plan for His children. In her unique, richly textured style, fine artist Annie Henrie offers a visual interpretations of the plan of salvation, including pre-earth life, the Creation, the Fall of Adam and Eve, life on earth, the spirit world, the Atonement and the Resurrection, and the kingdoms of glory. Accompanied by text from the scriptures, each exquisite image testifies of God’s love for us and of His plan of happiness.

Visions of Hope: An Illustrated Portrayal of God’s Plan for Us is available at DeseretBook.com, Amazon.com, or at a book store near you.

My Review:

This is such a beautiful book. The format is simple but effective. It first introduces an overview of the plan of salvation, and then it continues to illustrate each step of the plan. The artwork is ethereal and thought-provoking. Each section includes a scripture that relates to that part of the plan. This book is perfect for Family Home Evening for any age group. It is simple enough to share with young children, but it can also be used as a starting point for deeper discussion for older individuals.

Visions of Hope: An Illustrated Portrayal of God’s Plan for Us is a wonderful keepsake for any home, and it would make a welcome gift for Christmas.

      I agree, Amy. I like that the artwork primarily tells the story and the words are secondary.
