What Others Are Saying About the Film Series
"A cinematic achievement in its genre. This landmark study resource asks the tough questions and delivers even tougher answers. N.D. Wilson's words are worth a thousand pictures in this visually compelling experience."
- Stephen McEveety, producer, Braveheart, The Passion of the Christ
"N.D. Wilson is a clear and engaging speaker, and his presentation of the gospel is subversive and unexpected. Our post-Christian world needs people like this who can speak the gospel in ways that are unconventional and yet still convicting."
- Rev. John Lin, Associate Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Manhattan
"My friend Nate reminds me of C.S. Lewis and Jerry Seinfeld at the same time. Like Lewis, he has a white knuckle grip on philosophical themes and inquiries while at the same time using them in service to the gospel in a way that resonates with the real questions and concerns of our time. He's also Seinfeldian in the sense that he has a remarkable knack to see usually ignored details. He has a keen eye for seeing God's handiwork and finding gospel truth that many would overlook as every day, mundane things. Combine all this with a good sense of humor, remarkable creativity, humble confidence, and savvy vision and you have a trustworthy and fun guide showing you around. Highly recommended!"
- Tullian Tchividjian, Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft. Lauderdale and author of Unfashionable: Making a Difference in the World by Being Different
"The Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl Film Companion is a compelling medium for N.D. Wilson’s meditations on theology and the world in which we live. In these ten, short, video portraits, Wilson provokes us to consider the God who is there; the God who speaks into existence a lavish universe and all the stories of our lives; the God who, in turn, hides himself in the myriad details of those stories to be discovered by those with eyes to see and ears to hear. Wilson beckons us to stand on the edge of the storm; to confront our unbelief and petty fears so that the goodness and greatness of God might astound us and fill our hearts with gratitude and joy. I highly recommend this resource."
- Scott Anderson, Executive Director, Desiring God
"Combining stunning visuals with an entertaining and engaging text, Wilson yanks you out the numbing sameness of your frenetic pursuit of what quickly passes and leads you to care about and inquire into things that are transcendent. Don't watch it once. Watch it over and over again. It's just that powerful and important."
- Paul David Tripp, Pastor, Author and International Speaker
"Every time Nate Wilson opens his mouth my mind is bent a little bit, and this film is no exception. Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl throws out all assumptions and takes me on an adventure which ends with a bigger awe for God, a more mysterious world, and a thankfulness to be part of God's big story."
- Mike Anderson, The Resurgence, Mars Hill Church, Seattle
"This is a masterful and compelling use of God's general and special revelation. Nate Wilson artfully brings the two together in this symbiotic blend of verbal and non-verbal word. If apologetics has more to do with persuasion than proof (as I think it does), this film is replete with apologetic depth and richness. The "poetry" of God is brought out in bold relief. Watch, learn and be persuaded of the Truth."
- K. Scott Oliphint, Professor of Apologetics and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary
"N.D. Wilson's Notes from the Tilt-a-whirl film series is culturally relevant, intellectually stimulating, visually compelling and spiritually transforming. With the imagination of an artist and the mind of a philosopher he tackles the most difficult questions of humanity with humor and humble experience. This film will help you to reclaim the wonder of the Creator God and to see your life as a chapter in His story. "What character will you be?" Wilson will challenge the mundane elements of your life so you see the glory and value of each moment and live them out with joy and gratitude. This is an amazing resource for churches, small groups and individuals alike."
- Dan Palmer, Associate Pastor, First Covenant Church, Sacramento
