What is this World? What kind of place is it? "The round kind. The spinning kind. The moist kind. The inhabited kind. The kind with flamingos (real and artificial). The kind where water in the sky turns into beautifully symmetrical crystal flakes sculpted by artists unable to stop themselves (in both design and quantity). The kind of place with tiny, powerfully jawed mites assigned to the carpets to eat my dead skin as it flakes off . . . The kind with people who kill and people who love and people who do both . . .This world is beautiful but badly broken. "I love it as it is, because it is a story, and it isn't stuck in one place. It is full of conflict and darkness like every good story, a world of surprises and questions to explore. And there's someone behind it; there are uncomfortable answers to the how's and whys and what's. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Through Him were all things made . . . Welcome to His poem. His play. His novel. Let the pages flick your thumbs.".… (mer)

Good. A different perspective. A philosophy book for people who haven't studied philosophy (and perhaps for some who have). But entertaining and cleverly written. I recommend it to college students and people who think they are smarter than average. ( )

Ready to be in awe? Ready to be challenged - taken out of the box - left in amazement? This would be great for a small group - - Me? I used it for home school! Yes, home school. I absolutely found N.D. Wilson a friendly personality. His unique way of posing and answering questions simply begins with the word "HOW?".

My children (ages 4 to 10) found it just as interesting. "In the Beginning was the Word" - and he then says "welcome into His poem, his play, his novel..with the pages flick your thumbs. This is His spoken World" Wow! What a way to capture interest and begin a movie. With this he begins to challenge the world view.

Thought provoking and challenging.

Thank you Thomas Nelson for this review copy. ( )

Wilson’s style of writing is a unique. I almost put it down but glad I didn’t. There are gems sprinkled in here making it worthwhile. I enjoyed Wilson’s interaction with the philosophers and the way he casts every Christian’s life as a character in God’s story. ( )

I received this book as part of a blog tour promotional for N. D. Wilson's latest book, Death By Living. I was expecting DBL in the package, I was pleasantly surprised by Tilt-A-Whirl (henceforth referred to as TAW). But if you read my blog regularly, you know this already...

I know N. D. Wilson refutes the idea that he writes with a stream of consciousness style. I don't know if that's because people use it in a derogatory manner—I certainly do not use it that way. When I refer to stream of consciousness as a style I truly mean that,...

This book landed solidly on my favorites must reread someday list. If G.K Chesterton, Ann Voskamp and Steven Wright got together and wrote and worldview book this would be it! ( )
