Book Notes: All That's Good by Hannah Anderson
This is a book about engaging with God's world with discernment. She uses Philippians 4:8 as the lens to look through. Her writing style is engaging and smooth.
Why I read it
I wanted an easy-to-read book after finishing a big theology book. I tend to read theology after my Bible reading before my family wakes up. I wanted something serious, but not 500 pages. I also have been trying to read books my wife enjoys and books written by women. This fit all of the requirements.
Discernment helps us see the world for what it was made to be and believe that God is powerful enough to restore it to its intended purpose. 42-43
So too, with eyes of faith, we can look at the world around us and discern enough of its original beauty to know that it is good and worth our engagement. 43
But more than drawing us to themselves, beautiful things draw us beyond themselves to a reality greater than either of us. 128
- As good as the book was, it wasn't very quotable. I didn't underline that many things in it.
