The Unexpected Visitor, complied by N.B. Baroody and M.H. Baroody, is a collection of black and white photos mixed with appropriate quotes, Bible verses, and narration. N.B. Baroody contributed the photography, and his wife Margaret (M.H.) wrote much of the narrative. Throughout this collection of photos, the authors reveal pieces of their own story as a couple.
Each photograph shows a subtle balance between light and shadow, which is reflected in the accompanying verses and quotes. The care with which the words were chosen is evident. The language used is both appropriate and thought-provoking. Readers may be tempted to skim through this book quickly, but to enjoy it fully they must slow down and examine each picture carefully, thinking about the messages being given. In doing so, they will gain a sense of closeness both to the authors and to God, the true unexpected Visitor. This book is a lovely depiction of quiet moments in life where God shows up unexpectedly and serves as a gentle reminder that He is always near. As Leviticus 26:12 says, “I will walk among you and be your God and you will be my people."
