Publisher's Summary

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.

Solid

Great book! A little hard to understand at times. I think it was on purpose, but it made it difficult to follow. As someone who writes poetry, I enjoyed seeing how he illustrated using words. Haven't seen anyone do it better. In the though, I would definitely recommend it.

Captivating!

I enjoyed every minute of this book. As I tutor students in philosophy, I love how Wilson looks at different philosophical angles and brings us back to Creator God! It as if he has put into words that which I try to convey but in a more understandable, entertaining even, way. Thank you, N. D. Wilson. This is now one of my top ten books in this area of study.

Very poetic.

Listened to the entire audiobook in two sittings. Such an amazing story of the tilt-a-whirl that we all live on. Probably going to listen again shortly.

Great book but not read the best

the author reads the book which is cool and one sense but he is definitely not a professional voice actor. I love the book but at times was frustrated by the recording which seems cheap

Outstanding! Deep! Real!

Nate takes his unique writing style and the concept of a nature documentary to creat a manifesto that stands out as something genuine and yet compelling.

Biblical worldview at it's best

This was an encapsulation of how a mind steeped in biblical truth should see the world around them! There were sections so deep it lead me to tears and sections I had to listen through twice just to understand the beauty of the creation being discribed. I highly recommend this book!

Renewed perspective

Initially confused me but couldn’t stop listening. Made a big impact on me and altered my perspective on my place in this world and what matters.

My favourite book

Have loved reading this many times. I've bought copies of the book for about 10 people. Now I've loved hearing it all over again. An absolute must.
