Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl by N. D. Wilson

Nathan David Wilson unites the theology of God, speaker of Life into creation, with poetic prose and imagery that will be difficult to be rivaled. He paints a picture with words and allows the reader to contemplate how the seasons that God speaks each year in nature are significant...

Amos – BC Prophet or Prophet of today?
