The Bentz Test Laboratory was sent 4 issues of this beautiful magazine.  Each issue was a visual delight!  The pictures, the articles, even the recipes were all laced with Scripture to point our focus to our awesome Creator God.  This magazine is very well done - you'll be impressed with the quality.  It's printed on heavy weight glossy paper, with exceptional photography.  These issues were very hard to put down, in fact - I kept picking them up over and over, as did everyone in the house!

One of my favorite parts, each issue includes an "Instructional Guide" with ideas, devotionals, activities and guidelines for deeper study.  You could use these beautiful magazines as a complement to your science curriculum (I know we will)!  You will definitely want to keep these issues in the family library.

My testers loved the "Photo Contest for Youth" feature.  What a great way to get the kids off the couch and outside taking pictures in God's Creation!

I highly recommend subscribing to Creation Illustrated, it will encourage you and everyone who picks it up.

I was sent complimentary issues in exchange for my honest opinion as part of the TOS Review Crew.
