As I was hurdling over the Pacific Ocean in a steel and aluminum box, sitting in a cramped, 20″ excuse for a chair, I did the only thing that would keep me sane. I read. The book I chose to bring along for this 13 hour trip to the other side of existence was Notes from the Titl-A-Whirl by N.D. Wilson. And how shall I describe this book? Hands down the best book I’ve read this year. Fascinating. Funny. Frightening (reading about death at 37,000 feet with nothing but the sea below is scary). Fiendishly facetious (Kant followers beware). Feel-good. Okay, I’m running out of “F” words. Buy the book. Read the book. And open your eyes to the crazy, carnival-like world we live in. You won’t look at the sea or a line of scurrying ants the same again. And that’s a good thing.
Well, not only is there a book, there is now a film. And Westminster Theological Seminary bookstore has it at 60% off this week only! The film looks amazing. I can’t wait to get my copy and watch it.
Here is the trailer for the DVD:
