Bound for Glory by Timothy R. Botts is a visually stunning book. Botts takes African American spirituals that have played an important role in our nation’s life and illustrates them with vibrant colors and beautiful script. Along with the art work are the lyrics to the spiritual, a reflection by Botts or speaker Patricia Raybon and a devotional Bible verse from the New Living Testament.

Bound for Glory is a great gift book, devotional or just a fun book to look at the artwork. The paintings are a visual delight, reflecting well the mood and theme of the specific spiritual their words were lifted from.

Tyndale House Publishers provided a free copy of the book for review, but my opinion was not swayed in any manner.
