    One thought on “When Donkeys Talk: A Quest to Rediscover the Mystery and Wonder of Christianity”

    1. A beautiful, fresh, different look at Christian faith. When Donkeys Talk describes Christianity it is not in mundane terms, but strange, different, alive, with humour, taking us from the medieval perspective to today’s mechanical ways in Atomland. We realize God is God. He is not part of our world; we are part of His world, the world He created. Do we not believe in miracles anymore in Atomland?"I could not help but wonder: is a talking donkey a divine portent or a dental problem?Everything ab [...]

    2. In a narrative that brings Belloc to mind, Tyler Blanski does a brilliant job exploring the medieval Christian worldview. Responding to the modernist rejections of faith, Blanski looks to many sources to weave a tapestry of Christian belief. I really love the book. It is written in an easy to access prose while bringing much research and linguistic work to the table. All around brilliant book.

    3. Tyler Blanski doesn't think much of the modern way of looking at the world. That is, he doesn't like the Enlightenment rationalist way of seeing nature as nothing more than a collection of moving atoms bouncing off of each other (in scientific terms) and people as nothing more than isolated individuals doing basically the same thing. He thinks we need to have a radical transformation in our worldview that brings back the enchantment and magic of existence, that views people and society as connec [...]

    4. Blanski brings reflection to the perception of church, being a Christian, and the belief and faith of Jesus. He provides, what he sees as, the majority's view; then talks to the reader about another perspective which he sees.I enjoyed reading about the past history and what went on during that time and era. It was very enjoyable to see how life was so many years ago and the different beliefs which were formed at that time.I did not find this to be an easy read. Starting out, it was hard to diges [...]

    5. When Donkeys TalkBy Tyler BlanskiHave you wondered why donkeys don't talk and miracles are a thing of the past? Maybe donkeys still talk but unlike Balaam, who couldn't see what was before him, our ears are closed to God and His word to us.We have thrown God out and replaced Him with science, what was once theory we now embrace as fact and the all governing law of the universe. We have shoved God into a small box of Sunday entertainment, not realizing that we, ourselves, have in fact crawled int [...]

    6. A semi-humorous look at Christianity; what it is and what it isn't compared to the Bible examples of wild faith and experiences. How normal is it in our every day lives to walk on water, or have a donkey talk to us, or any of the many other "unusual occurances" of the Bible? This is the normal of the Bible heritage of faith that we come from. This author brings to light the recognition of the stirring of the Holy Spirit for Christians to become hungry; to become life -long students of Jesus. be [...]

    7. When Donkeys Talk subtitled A Quest to Rediscover the Mystery and Wonder of Christianity is a deep dive into the lost sense of wonder of close fellowship with God, His Creation and His children? American singer/songwriter Tyler Blanski took the story in Numbers 22 of Balaam‘s talking donkey as a starter. How many simply reason this away? A donkey can’t talk, let alone God’s prophecy that man refuses to speak. Period. Welcome to what Blanski calls Atomland. I think therefore I am. What I ca [...]

    8. I love this book by this Anglican housepainter and musician Tyler Blanski! Someone referred to it as "apologetics" well, sort of, but not in any systematic way: it's more of a romp through the author's mind, heart, and daily pathways that reveals his passion for scripture, sacraments, Jesus, liturgy, and tradition; it also chronicles a few of his conversations with friends. Not only is it not systematic, the book doesn't seem to have any kind of organizing principle, but that's absolutely fine f [...]

    9. I have to admit that I have mixed feelings concerning this book. I always enjoy Christian books that take a somewhat less traditional view, and this book certainly lives up to that sentiment. The story of Balaam and his donkey always brings a smile to my face. The author took this idea and ran with it, and sometimes I found myself quite interested in what he had to say. Being challenged to think through my Christian walk in a bit different way is a hallmark of this book, and so sometimes I enjoy [...]

    10. In his book, When Donkeys Talk, Blanski makes the argument that we need to return to the reasoning of the Middle Ages, which he sees not as a dark period of history, but rather a time when people saw the wonder, majesty and magic of God in everything around them. The reasoning he describes is not a matter of blind and unreasoned faith, but is the clear, classic and logical thought of ancient and respected scholars such as Origen and Augustine, who believed God and not man is the center of all. H [...]

    11. I must say I requested the book, because the title caught my attention. I really enjoyed parts of the book and other parts were a little bit confusing. What I did leave after reading the book is anytime anyone is on the quest to seek the meaning of life is too seek God. There are two types of Christians and they are those who believe in God, and those who have a personal relationship with God. The word of God points to Jesus. He is the only way to God. If you would like to read about the miracle [...]

    12. A lot to take in. Don't rush it!In our day, we are so rushed we don't take time to see the ways that God is speaking to us, do we? I loved the title, says a lot. We miss out on so many miracles in our every day lives, too busy with so many other things.One of my favorite things from the book was, He is the Lord of time.Wow. Read this book. Read it again, and again. Keep it on your shelf. Read it every time you get a chance. Pass it on to others. It can only bless."Atomland" went over my head a b [...]

    13. What a great book to re-think our journey. Mr. Blanski, I thoroughly enjoyed my crazy donkey ride with you. This book reminded me of Mere Christianity by CS Lewis (curiously also an Anglican) for its fresh perspective and challenge to refresh my perspective and rise above the day to day ordinary-ness of what I can see and touch. Thank you again, Mr. Blanski.
