John Wilson, in First Things

Nov 11, 2008

“And no Christmas list would be complete without a lullaby book. It’s Time to Sleep, My Love, written by Eric Metaxas and illustrated by Nancy Tillman is a ravishingly beautiful volume that my wife and I will be giving to our grandchildren. (We plan to get a back-up copy to keep in readiness for visitors.) “You are loved,” it says, and neither irony nor absurdity nor the most bitter pain puts a dent in that sentiment, which mysteriously undergirds the universe.”

John Wilson, “Wrapping Up 2008″ in the current issue of First Things.
