I have been reading this book, “Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl” by N.D. Wilson over the weekend and am really enjoying it. Nate Wilson, the son of Douglas Wilson who is himself a noted, Evangelical theologian, pastor, and author, writes this book to encourage Christians of the grandiosity yet closeness of God while leading those who would lean more agnostic or atheist toward an apologetic of the same. For me, this book had a similar effect as Tim Keller’s, “A Reason for God”, which I also highly recommend. While Keller’s writing is more of a systematic approach, Wilson writes more like an artist in the vein of Pollack spraying the canvas of this book with the paint of Biblical truths to reveal a clear and articulate work that will leave you encouraged by the activity of our Creator God all around us and hopefully giving you a desire to know more about the life of Jesus. If you are not a big reader, N.D. Wilson also has a DVD that leads you along an abbreviated version of the book, which I also own and recommend.
