Notes From The Tilt-A-Whirl

Wide-Eyed Wonder in God's Spoken World.

A visual, poetic exploration of the narrative nature of the world and the personality of the Poet behind it all.When Nate Wilson looks at the world around him, he asks "What is this place? Why is this place? Who approved it? Am I supposed to take it seriously?" What could such an outlandish, fantastical world say about its Creator? In these sparkling chapters, 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 is the best-selling author of the 100 Cupboards series (Random House), Leepike Ridge (Random House), the Ashtown Burial series (Random House). His book, Death By Living, was a Christianity Today 2014 Award Winner (Thomas Nelson).
He writes up in the top of the tall skinny house where he lives with the blue-eyed girl he stole from the ocean (and their five young explorers, two tortoises, and one snake). He has adventured for National Geographic Channel, is currently adapting C.S. Lewis' The Great Divorce for the screen, and once -- in the fourth grade -- split his buddy's arrow while shooting at a mattress from twenty yards.
