World-renowned Christian philosopher. Beloved professor. Author of the classic Lament for a Son. Nicholas Wolterstorff is all of these and more. His memoir, In This World of Wonders, opens a remarkable new window into the life and thought of this remarkable man.


Written not as a complete life story but as a series of vignettes, Wolterstorff's memoir moves from his humble beginnings in a tiny Minnesota village to his education at Calvin College and Harvard University, to his career of teaching philosophy and writing books, to the experiences that prompted some of his writing-particularly his witnessing South African apartheid and Palestinian oppression firsthand.


In This World of Wonders is the story of a thoughtful and grateful Christian whose life has been shaped by many loves-love of philosophy, love of family, love of art and architecture, love of nature and gardening, and more. It's a lovely, wonderful story.
