Editorial Reviews

An Idea Film. A Bookumentary.
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.

Customer Reviews

Too many people talk about faith like it's easy.
Claire L. Martens
It is a film that will make you angry or it will make you laugh at yourself and make you realize how small you really are.
NofToronto
Intelligent, honest look at philosophy and contrasts it with real life via Christian viewpoint.

N.D. Wilson's love for the world that God has spoken comes through with the best kind of authenticity. This compelling film revels in Wilson's contention that "you can learn more from an anthill than from Heidegger". He is not afraid to raise the biggest of questions, and more importantly, to answer them, not just with speculations from a book filled room, but in the context of a life lived inside God's story. Wilson is no slouch as a thinker, but having stepped outside into a wild world, he fills out life's questions with answers that touch the whole person, head, heart, and hand. This is philosophy for real people: not dumbed down, but fleshed out. This world, and all of our experiences in it, are part of a story that is being told, and instead of grumbling about your lines, Wilson invites the viewer to meet the world with gratitude, because the story God is telling is a good one.

Awesome. I don't normally review anything on here but since this is new and I know how heavily I rely on the ratings on Amazon for purchasing decisions I just have to get this out there. You will not be disappointed. Wilson hits heavy on a topic that I love from John Piper (who got it from CS Lewis) which Piper calls "The wakening wonder of what's really there." So buy this and start to wake up.

This film is able to awe me when I'm complacent, confront me when I'm bored, and challenge me when I'm not asking the hard questions. It--scenes, discussions, people, humor and sorrow, settings, insects, you name it--is beautiful.

Here's to a good start of a new genre: the bookumentary. A narrative walk through N.D. Wilson's Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl, this film captures the glory and impossibility of the created world, and the gratitude and laughter that we should respond with--all in under an hour. The scope of the spoken world is obviously enormous so anticipate quick sketches and fat brush strokes, "important" philosophers accounted for and swept aside, and a ride that feels a bit like the name. Get ready to tilt and whirl.

The book is good, and the bookumentary is just icing on the cake. By which I mean it is sweet, flashy, and if you're not careful, gets everywhere.

N. D. Wilson's take on life, the universe, and everything is somewhat unique. Like a carnie, he introduces us to a world of flashing lights and moving parts, with a heap of bizarreness on every side. In under an hour he brings us through questions about God, the afterlife, and the problem of evil.

It is his treatment of the problem of evil that makes the whole thing worth watching. He takes us from grit and guts to fluffy kittens and every place in between, pulling no punches. If you want real answers, you have to look under every rock, and he does. Join him in his journey. Don't just ask the questions, find the answers. Watch it, read it, watch it again. It's worth every penny.

The greatest thing I took away from this film was the reminder how small we are, how big God is, and how much we take for granted. This is one of those films, just like N.D. Wilsons book of the same name, that benefits from re-watching multiple times.

NDW does a fantastic job at displaying the wonder of God's creation. He shows you that there is order, design, and purpose in everything. This DVD is unlike you have ever seen before, taking you on a wild ride through this world. I highly recommend this for anyone curious about this world, or unsure of its purpose. Watch and be amazed!

"We should be laughing, because God is laughing. We should be sacrificing ourselves, because God sacrifices His own Son."
"We were the ones who got to participate in this song, in this art, and at that very end we should now that living really makes dying worth it."
This film delivers a stunning blow to the complainers, the whiners, the Christians who live as atheists. There is a God up there and because we know that He is up there laughing, we are compelled to laugh.
It is well filmed and well argued. It is a film that will make you angry or it will make you laugh at yourself and make you realize how small you really are.
I would encourage you to buy it and show it to your friends and neighbors and family. It will be worth every penny you payed. Enjoy!
