I really enjoyed this book. I thought that was very inspirational a lot of good ways to describe the validity of our daily lives. No matter your occupation, no matter what you do every day, given how little it is, it has significant period. I especially appreciated The chapter on Sabbath, as the Sabbath-keeper myself, it was very awesome to see somebody saying a lot of the things that I say and believe about it. Great book, especially for those of us are trying to understand what we can do for the kingdom.

The book is really nice. Valuable ideas for fostering the creative habit. I just think it's a little too one dimensional since it's very specifically framed around the authors experience with dancing choreography. It would've been nice to have perhaps some interviews with different creative people and their thoughts on how to foster their creative habits.

This is a great book, it's a wonderful guide to the history of gardens in America and what I appreciate the most is Pollan's way of looking at all that history and drawing his own conclusions while building his own garden. It is something that I want to do someday in my garden, But so far in my life I have been unsuccessful trying even the smallest of gardens. I appreciate a lot of the things he said, and I find myself mesmerized by some of the quotations that he pulls from all these gardeners. I want his bibliography so that I can immerse myself into this world of gardening even deeper. Great book.
I'm debating whether I get a physical copy of this book, so I can make notes underline wonderful parts and make it as a reference for me in the future. It's certainly a book that you can't just use up in audio form.

I tried to follow along his line of reasoning. But most times I felt confused with his points and direction. It seemed to me he was just talking about theology in such abstract and philosophical terms and much of it was very theoretical.

i really like his perspective on tne good news. i wonder how he interprets Paul's idea of the "falling away" and the "man of sin" coming first before the fulfillmwnt of the kingdom.

The only thing that I'm still unclear on is how this good news affects the entire universe and not just earth. Most authors paint this picture of earth as the center point in the universe and while that's true, God's creatures include his angels, His divine messengers. The good news needs to affect them as well especially in the context of the war in heaven (Rev. 12).

In my view, the good news is much larger than the way it affects humans and animals but the whole cosmic and supernatural world as well.
