Last month, we published Notes From The Tilt-A-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God’s Spoken World by N.D. Wilson. In a few minutes I’ll tell you how to get a copy free.
We publish about 400 new books a year, so I can’t read all of them. But three people I really respect—Matt Baugher, Joel Miller, and George Grant—told me that I had to make time for this one. So I did. Boy, am I glad.
I don’t think I have read any author with such a unique writing style as N.D. He reminded me of what you might get if you combined C.S. Lewis or G.K. Chesterton with James Joyce and Donald Miller. It is a kind of orthodox apologetic for a post-modern, A.D.D. world. The writing is truly art. But it is different. It honestly made me see God’s creation afresh, as though through the eyes of a child.
Last week, N.D. came to our offices in Nashville for a planning meeting. I had dinner with him, David Moberg, and Matt Baugher at The Red Pony in downtown Franklin, Tennessee. We talked about everything from theodicy to how he met his wife.
We had a wonderful meal and a stimulating conversation. It reminded me once again about why I love publishing books and why I got in this business to begin with.
The next afternoon, I was able to sit down with N.D. and interview him. We talked about the book—why he wrote it, his unique writing style, and what he hopes to accomplish. I strongly encourage you to get a copy, unplug from everything that might distract you, and rediscover again the joy of reading.
Why am I doing this? Because I want to prime the pump. Once you have read this book, I am convinced that you will be talking it up with your family and friends.
Update: This promotion is now closed. We intended to give the book away to the first 100 people who requested it. That happened in about about an hour. As a result, we raised the limit to 250 books. That took another two hours. I then raise it to 500 copies. We have given those out a few hours later. Thanks to every one who left comments and participated with us!
