Notes From The Tilt-A-Whirl // Book Review

You have to read this book.

There is a new movie out. You may have heard of it. Gravity with Sandra Bullock. The beauty of this movie is that it brings back the wonder of cinema.

The beauty of this book is that brings back the wonder of God.

“Imagine a poem written with such enormous three-dimensional words that we had to invent a smaller word to reference each of the big ones; that we had to rewrite the whole thing in shorthand, smashing it into two dimensions, just to talk about it. Or don’t imagine it. Look outside. Human language is our attempt at navigating God’s language; it is us running between the lines of His epic, climbing on the vowels and building houses out of the consonants.”
― N.D. Wilson, Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God’s Spoken World

The title of the book is appropriate, because the writing style makes you feel like you are on a Tilt-a Whirl, like you a speeding through the author’s thoughts and discovering along with him how great our God truly is and how unfit we are to describe His wonder. And yet, how our existence is His masterpiece, is the proof of His greatness.

My words are insufficient. You have to read this book. You have to see your faith through these eyes and view God from the Tilt-a-Whirl.
