For the Beauty of the Earth

Experiencing the Glory of God in the Wonders of the 49th State

ByBartholomew Hutcherson

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Fr. Bart Hutcherson, OP is an itinerant preacher and frequent pilgrim. He is also a photography hobbyist who loves capturing images that characterize the places he travels. In 2020 and 2021, he spent 7 months ministering in Catholic Communities all around Alaska, and he found himself deeply moved by the beauty of the 49th State. Alaska has a remarkably diverse topography, and Fr. Bart found much to photograph and share, capturing more than 50,000 photographs during those seven months. Using the Song of the Three Young Men in Daniel chapter three as his organizing principle, he has arranged a selection of those images, along with Scripture, poetry, and the lyrics of hymns, in an inspiring “visual sermon.” He hopes that Alaskans who enjoy this book will be reminded of the beauty all around them and give praise to God for it. He hopes those outside Alaska might have renewed understanding of beauty, wherever we encounter it, as a sign of God’s loving providence. And, above all, Fr. Bart hopes that all who read this book will be moved by the artistry of the world around them to give praise to the divine artist with this refrain: “Bless the Lord, all you works of the Lord, praise and exalt him above all forever!” (Daniel 3:57)
