When Donkeys Talk by Tyler Blanski
Does anyone else adore donkeys? I know a couple of you do, and even have donkeys, you fortunate people! This book cover caught my eye, and I am glad I read it.
The author writes in a friendly style, exploring how science misses out on the miracles around us. He writes “Is it any wonder we moderns don’t believe Balaam’s donkey could talk? Our cult of facts and laws leaves no room for mystery or magic, no room for God.”
Sometimes modern people think that creativity comes from within rather than without or God-inspired. Blanski confides here that at times he was blind to the miracles of God around him, forgetting that the cherubim and seraphim and demons and God himself are everywhere. His book contains some memoir and some theology, and is easy to read and understand. Blanski is a musician and pursuing holy orders in the Anglican church, and writes with a touch of humor about serious topics.
Yes, Scripture tells us that God made a donkey talk and that God continues to make miracles and is active in our world today. The author calls on us to become students of Jesus, fed by passages of Scripture, and to get out of the way or become a way for God to heal and love broken people.
I love and share this belief.
