There are moments where you have no idea where this book is heading. But it is fun and different. Honest and Christ glorifying. Bravo!

I loved this book. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that as I closed the last page, I wanted to start all over. For the moment, that's not an option - other texts are beckoning.

It's beautifully written, in a kind of N.D. Wilsonesque way that I'm not sure would work as well elsewhere. It 'plays' with ideas and themes, moving seamlessly from one to another, and as it goes it gradually, quirkily, some might say eccentrically, makes the case for a world spoken into being by a God is who artist, poet, comedian...

Wilson hyperlinks from Hamlet to Ants, to deciduous trees, to anecdotes about relatives, to Greek Myths in a way that always leaves you chewing over the residue of sentences. The emphasis is on the 'hyper', rather than the link. There's good theology here, but you won't find it tied up neatly in little, discrete, parcels - it's messy, exuberant, full of sparkle and life.

This is for the person who would not, ordinarily, read a 'Christian' book, but it's also for those of us, longer in the tooth, who may actually have read a lot, and think we know it all. It does us all good at times to read things that leave us wondering, "Did he really say that?"

My only criticism is that this is printed on horribly cheap paper - and I think it deserves rather better, together with leaf-prints annotated by the author's children.

And I particularly liked Wilson's description of his daughter describing him as growing up to be "old and sparkly". We could do with a few more folks like that around us.

This film presents a Christian, theistic, world-view. Everything around us is "miraculous". It is very thought-provoking. It is well-made. Its style is partciularly suited to young adults and mature teenagers - lots of fast sound-bites. It would make good viewing for a group that was interested in discussing it afterwards.

Delicious read, embracing physicality and abstract thought, Plato and poop! A book about everything which at once examines detail with a microscope whilst stepping back for the big picture. Soul food :)

I have seldom read a book that has teased my brain so much to make me think in ways I had forgotten about. Fresh and freeing. Wonderful. Wonderful. Wonderful.
