Comments: This is a book marveling at the world around us, asking questions many of us pondered as children, but often stop asking as we get old. Wilson ridicules the idea of the world being the result of random or spontaneous generation out of nothingness or primordial matter. It works well as an apologetic for a God-created universe with a purpose. His emphasis on story resonated well. This was delightful, easy read that asked good questions and answered them well. I'd recommend it.

Comments: This book is amazing. The author introduces the everyday ordinary moments of our lives and we get to see them spinning with the rest of this planet. And then we try to hold on during that apex when we're furthest from the Sun. I have never seen chapters flip by so quickly, and yet I've never re-read so many snippets in any other story. It's an easy read (in the sense that verbs tend to follow nouns), but you will find yourself letting the book drop, opened facedown onto your chest as you pause to look out the window and squint to see the frozen molecules in an icicle. I've re-read the entire thing 2 times now and it's infinitely re-readable. It can be picked up on page 78 and you can remember exactly what's going on. Consider picking up a couple copies to have on hand for when your house is open to those who can't comprehend the beauty, mystery, and absolute wonder of a Creator who holds this all together without breaking a sweat.

Comments: Read it overnight! Reread it the following weekend. Went out and bought 4 more to pass out to some friends I knew would enjoy. I still thumb through it and quote it in my blog. I also keep my husband up late reading from it. I just want it in the hands of everyone I know!
