Framing Faith by Matt Knisely

Framing Faith by Matt Knisely is a book that makes you reframe how you think about your surroundings, and most importantly, yourself. The author encourages you to slow down, be present in the moment, and truly learn that that moment matters.

Book Description
Like a photographer or storyteller, Jesus exhibited time and again how easy it is to capture moments of profound importance just by noticing, stopping, and responding to his surroundings.
In a world moving way too fast, Framing Faith is a book for people seeking to focus their lives, to find a deeper knowledge of God, and a more authentic Christian faith. In this modern age, many of us fill every "spare" moment we have rather than taking an intermission to see the true works of God and realize that he is present in every moment.
Matt Knisely communicates biblical truths in a fresh way, allowing you to really hear them, as if for the first time. He illustrates a new way to see God and to help us live in the moment through the exploration of various photography concepts, including: Perspective, Composition, Processing, Darkness versus Light
His probing questions and unexpected presentation lead readers into a place of honest self-examination, causing them to ask, "Am I listening to God?" Framing Faith provokes its readers toward reflection; it reveals God is in everything we see and do.” – Framing Faith

My Thoughts
Framing Faith is a well written and detailed book that describes the author’s “disability” and how he learned how to focus, be in the moment, and overcome a “disability” that could have hindered his life in a huge way, but he persevered and is thriving because of it.

Most of us do need to slow down in our life and really see the moment we are in for what it is. This book helps us to do that and above all else, really see that these small moments in our lives do matter, and we need to appreciate them.

I enjoyed reading this book and think that everyone can benefit from reading it and applying what we learn in it to our lives. I highly recommend it.
