Overview

Tired of church as you ve known it? Thirsty for a fresh look at Christian faith? American singer/songwriter and author Tyler Blanski was, too. So he set out on a Holy Pilgrimage to rediscover the saints, stars, and beauty of Christianity for the twenty-first century. Rich with deep application for living in the modern world, When Donkeys Talk is an invitation to become enchanted again with Christ and his world.

Tyler reminds us that God works in unexpected, unusual, and miraculous ways and that he inhabits and speaks through the wondrous world he has made. Blanski redefines magical to help us see that the world is guided by a hand greater than science and materialism. Using scripture, the wisdom of the church fathers, and respected theologians and Christian thinkers from centuries past, as well as a creative and humorous narrative, you will find the wonder of our ancient faith still alive and well.

Blanski (Mud & Poetry) is praying for a renaissance of Christianity. A writer and musician with a “medieval beard,” Blanski takes the reader on a pilgrimage to the past to rediscover the mystery lost in modernity. Along the way, he unpacks old ideas in short, easy to read chapters. Dialogues with friends lighten the book as well. Agnostic Oliver, for instance, provides a foil in his effort to show why science shouldn’t be elevated over Christianity. The author won’t convince the skeptic, and he neglects the awe and wonder that many find in scientific theories. But his starting point is Jesus, and he argues that modern Christianity is “materialistic or therapeutic deism.” Blanski’s vision will appeal to and challenge Christians of any denomination who feel unsatisfied with Sunday services. The sacraments of Eucharist and baptism are real and transformative, he says. His critique and ideas might not be novel, but, Blanski would argue, the church could benefit from old truths. (Jan.)
