• Your cell phone camera can be a window to wonder – and God • Includes practical guidance, reflection questions, activities, and examples • Can be used by youth or adult groups or for individual spiritual practice There’s more to life than selfies! With the advent of digital photography and the widespread use of camera-equipped smart phones, we have all become photographers. Can the same technology that makes the upload of selfies and endless posting to Instagram and Facebook also function as a tool for quiet contemplation, connection, and deeper meaning? Indeed yes: the practice of contemplative photography invites people of faith to set aside distractions of contemporary life to view the world through the eyes of the divine and uncover the extraordinary in the ordinary. Reflection questions, suggested activities, invitations to journal and create a volume of discovery, and original photographs taken by the author are accompanied by inspirational quotes and passages from scripture. Providing practical guidance for photography as a means of meditation and reflection and a form of prayer, readers will be encouraged to be seekers, open and present, ready to be refreshed, renewed, and delighted.

Shooting Back caught my attention. Way to go, Jim Hubbard.
Oprah Winfrey

Shooting Back is wonderful and should be supported in every way possible.
Hillary Rodham Clinton

There is the photojournalism that is objective, and then there is the photojournalism that is purposefully provocative. Jim hubbard has found time to practice both.
The Washington Post

Jim and Shooting Back gives us all hope.
Maria Shriver, NBC news

His photos are powerful. His theme is strong and honest. Jims faith story is compelling, enabled by the grace and love of God. There is a human joy. Jim Hubbard is a very special person, and I am proud to know him.
Martin Sheen

Jim Hubbards photos are a worthy continuation of the tradition of American documentary photography that has tried to give voice to the voiceless. Through his sensitivity we feel that these are people and not just a problem.
Peter Howe, director of photography, LIFE magazine

Jim Hubbard reached a position which any photographer would envy. He has embarked on a task which is difficult and rarely lucrative. Jim spends his time in our ghettos, our poverty-filled streets. He is an artist photographing the poor, impoverished to heighten the publics awareness. Jim should serve as an example to us all.
US House of Representatives Majority Whip Tony Coelho, D-CA

I was very moved and touched by your book. God has redeemed, is redeeming, the searing pain of your loss. Your story greatly encourages me.
Rankin Wilbourne, senior pastor, Pacific Crossroads Church, Santa Monica, California
