Carl Trueman wrote a review at First Things of Wells’ new book God in the Whirlwind. He interprets the title’s “whirlwind” as referring to the book of Job. His review is worth reading, but I especially enjoyed the concluding paragraph:
This is a book all Christians should read. And, while generally positive in its proposals, it has sufficient pessimism (though David, as a good fellow pessimist, will no doubt tell me he is not such a one) that this Englishman still enjoyed it. Christianity in the West is shifting to the status of an annoying, perhaps even unwelcome, sect. The future is, humanly speaking, bleak. David’s books in general are a good argument for seeing ourselves as a large part of our current problem and this book in particular offers helpful thoughts on what must now be done.
I heartily agree.
