Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God’s Spoken World
By N.D. Wilson
Wilson gives an aesthetic examination of the ways in which humanity has tried to make sense of this overwhelming carnival ride of a world. He takes a whimsical, thought-provoking look at everything from the “magic” of quantum physics, to nature’s absurdities, to the problem of evil, evolution and hell. These frequently humorous, and uniquely beautiful portraits express reality unknown to many Christians-the reality of God’s story unfolding around and among us. As the author says, “Welcome to His poem. His play. His novel. His comedy. Let the pages flick your thumbs.”
N.D. Wilson, the author of excellent works of youth-oriented fiction such as Leepike Ridge, appears to be a young Chesterton. Read this 2009 work of art … and weep.
