5.0 von 5 Sternen How big is God?, 21. Juli 2000
Tozier accomplishes several big things in this "small" book. First, he lays out in simple words many of the attributes of God, in relation to scripture and in terms that our modern ears can tune in to. Secondly, and just as importantly, he shows how everything in our world depends on the complete trustworthiness of God. My favorite quote: "The trustworthiness of God is the foundation of scientific truth."
Highly recommended, and will probably generate interest in other books he has written. (Try "In Pursuit of God")

It wasn't until I had nearly reached the last page of The Wrecker that I realized R.L. Stevenson meant for the book to read as slowly as it did. Though there were sections of high drama, I had struggled with the pace to that point, viewing it as a bit staid or wordy, much more so than other works of his I had read.
In the end, though, I could clearly see his clever intentions. Stevenson's "Tell-Tale" clues indicated that The Wrecker was a response to the jerking, backwards plots of the modern mystery story. Stevenson intentionally slowed the narrative speed, blunted the sharp edges (in contrast to Poe's hard-hitting, most famous stories), and added descriptive… Mehr dazu
