N.D. Wilson is a gifted author and thinker. Son of Doug Wilson, N.D. Wilson has written a number of books including the popular 100 Cupboards series. In this book, Wilson takes a departure in his typical writing genre of childrens fiction.

Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl: Wide-Eye Wonder in God’s Spoken World is an apologetic against postmodernism. In addition to the book, Wilson has produced a bookumentary with the description as follows:

A cinematic treatment of a worldview. A poet live in concert. A motion picture sermon. VH1 Storytellers meets Planet Earth. 60 Minutes meets Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. In this unusual but fascinating film sequence, best-selling author N.D. Wilson gives an emotional and intellectual tour of life in this world and the final chapter that is death. Everything before and after and in between is a series of miracles–some of which are encouraging, others disturbing and uncomfortable.

Along with the video is a ten week study guide to help a small group or individual navigate through the though provoking insights and worldview critiquies.

Tullian Tchividjian, pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and author of Unfashionable, says of the book,

My friend Nate reminds me of C.S. Lewis and Jerry Seinfeld at the same time. Like Lewis, he has a white knuckle grip on philosophical themes and inquiries while at the same time using them in service to the gospel in a way that resonates with the real questions and concerns of our time. He’s also Seinfeldian in the sense that he has a remarkable knack to see usually ignored details. He has a keen eye for seeing God’s handiwork and finding gospel truth that many would overlook as every day, mundane things. Combine all this with a good sense of humor, remarkable creativity, humble confidence, and savvy vision and you have a trustworthy and fun guide showing you around. Highly recommended!

If you want an up to date look at how to critique a worldview, namely the postmodern worldview we are facing, then this book, video and study guide are for you.
