A year after I got a copy of N.D. Wilson’s little book on the glory of God’s creation and seasons of life, Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl, I finally read it and found myself craving the next page with every turn. Wilson is a talent writer and a talented thinker. He is willing to sprinkle in common language (note: that means he might say a naughty word) but speaks eloquently to the reality of God’s creation and how we should align the posture of our life in response to it.
I was not in a place of doubt or philosophical challenge to the existence of God but even in my place of assurance, I felt like Wilson bolstered my belief with quirky clarity and frank discussion. I even feel a bit more important since I have a 1 in 8,000,000 chance of existence (of course feeling important is not the point.) And it is a fun read – I devoured the text in a week, which for me is fast.
If you are looking for a fun read that will push you to think deeply and be refreshed by the truth of God’s spoken word (or world) you must pick up Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl. You will thank me.
