    1. Nerds like me that read Hitchhiker’s Guide found out the "Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything" is 42. But the Christian in me knows that the real answer to that question is God. In The Story of Everything, Christian author Jared Wilson makes the case that everything in our lives either reflects the gospel or finds its perfection in the gospel; and that the purpose of everything is to bring God glory. According to Wilson, the gospel’s framework is creation, f [...]

    2. This is a great book that is both fun and theologically engaging. Wilson writes about a different aspect of life in each chapter, and ties it all to God's grand purpose (the secret) of the universe. I really enjoyed how he discusses the impact of the Creation story in Genesis on many different aspects of life, even some things that we take for granted. This is an encouraging book that relates everyday real life to the good news of the Gospel. Reading this book has definitely made me think of thi [...]

    3. Wilson writes lucidly, winsomely, and when appropriate — provocatively. On several cultural issues I don’t align with his take (or more precisely his rhetorical strategy), but I appreciate his desire to honor Scripture as the source of truth and wisdom. This book aptly brings Kuyperian fervor to the 21st century Christian (at a popular level), exploring and applying Genesis to Revelation to the seemingly mundane, proving it isn’t.

    4. The story of everything. That is a rather all-encompassing statement to make is it not? But when it comes to assessing the God of the universe, at least according to what Scripture says about Him, one has to submit to the reality that all things fit within God’s perfect plan for His creation. In his latest book aptly titled The Story of Everything: How You, Your Pets, and the Swiss Alps Fit into God’s Plan for the World, Jared Wilson outlines just what this looks like.This is not one of thos [...]

    5. Ever since I read Randy Alcorn’s "Heaven," I have been extremely interested in deepening my understanding of eternity and how the current world fits in to God’s plan. "The Story of Everything" by Jared C. Wilson is an excellent addition to my library and my thoughts in this area.In the book, Wilson examines multiple aspects of the world to arrive at a theological understanding of how it all fits in to the story God is telling. He examines history, creation, politics, culture, evil, pain, fun [...]

    6. I have said for many years now that all stories point back to The Story, that is the story of God’s plan for the world. In The Story of Everything, Jared C. Wilson not only reiterates this idea but backs it up with illustrations from society, science, entertainment, and of course the Bible. Wilson teaches this concept – that every facet of life has to do with God and our part in His Story – thoroughly and with a wry wit that keeps it from becoming too academic. He also tells us what to do [...]

    7. Grace is the secret of the universe….There is something coming through in this transmission of grace that affects everything, that changes everything. If we pan out and look at grace from the cosmological perspective, we see nothing less than the eternally expansive glory of God. The problem of loneliness and insignificance is actually a lack of glory. The Glory of God solves these problems (and a million others besides). It actually cracks the code of human existence and the future of creatio [...]

    8. This book is about how a biblical view of Christianity shapes one’s interpretation and view of everything. Because of the truth about God and His works the point of the book is that life and everything else is meaningful. Ultimately everything exists for the glory of God. In ten chapters the author Jared Wilson explores what a Biblical view has to say about God’s plan and our world. His discussion ranges from creation, history, art, science, work, pain, rest and marriage.I enjoyed the book a [...]

    9. Everything is your life is meaningful and is part of a grander story being told. It is the story that God is weaving together and you get to play a part in it, that is if you recognize you are just part not the main character.Jared Wilson’s recent offering of The Story of Everything: How You, Your Pets, and the Swiss Alps Fit into God’s Plan for the World helps us recognize the story and the value of all the things, the everything, and God’s purpose in them.Wilson follows the words of the [...]

    10. The author effectively demonstrates how theology is relevant today by linking with culture, marriage, death, work and other topics. Some of the chapters were more valuable and meaningful than other chapters, as some of the chapter went beyond general themes in theology that I'd read many times before and provided a new angle or perspective. While I recall the reference to pets in the book, I'm not sure where the Swiss Alps were mentioned as indicated in the subtitle. The reason for the average s [...]

    11. What a great book! Everybody ought to read Jared Wilson's The Story of Everything! He doesn't exactly cover every thing in the book (it would have to be a lot longer!), but he addresses a great number of things -- very important things -- looking through the "spectacles" of the biblical worldview at history, nature, the nations, art, science, work, evil, pain, play, sex, marriage, and several other topics. He even discloses "the secret of the universe." The gospel is presented very clearly throu [...]

    12. Scientists search for a theory which will explain everything. The author believes the Bible is the story of everything. More specifically, it is "the glory of God brought to bear by the grace of God." The book begins with the conclusion and ends with the introduction. The rest of the book makes application. I found chapters 8 and 9 to be especially good. Like all of Jared Wilson's writings, he has something important to say. He shows how God's purpose is related to everything we do in life and e [...]

    13. There's some interesting stuff in here, for sure, but I've read a LOT of Jared's books, so I know what he's capable of. Though I generally enjoyed the sweeping overview aspect to this book, it's not his best.

    14. Excellent book about how God is shaping our lives into his ultimate story of redemption. Practical and deep, Wilson's writing hits my heart every time I read one of his books.

    15. Some interesting things - good views on Genesis. Some stuff I'll have to think about. The chapter on rest wasn't great to me, I'm not into sports. Audiobook #vtreadingchallenge #ABookWithAGreatCover
