    This is such a great article. I agree with the author’s takes wholeheartedly. And I’m glad someone else recognizes the absolute brilliance that is Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl, by N.D. Wilson. Honestly believe more people should read this book over how-to-argue-for-your-faith stuff, and it’s a great read even for nonbelievers who are interested in the big moral/spiritual themes of the world.

      Thanks, Daniel! I absolutely agree that Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl is better than many apologetics books. Death by Living is similar. I think they should be considered extended prose poems with theological and philosophical themes. Wilson has such a lyrical writing style in both! I hope to develop some of the ideas in this article a little further, specifically regarding psychology and personal narratives, but we’ll see how the research goes in that direction.

What say you?
