Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The title, Hullaballoo, is a quirky word, and this is an equally quirky book, full of Jones's wit, sarcasm and humorous stories. It's also deeply serious as it reveals the oft-forgotten Christian truth that the craving of the soul for the glory of God is "already embedded in the hullabaloo of your present life." Glory, he says, was there all along; it's hullabaloo-"the ordinary stuff of life"-that gets in the way. Jones (Misquoting Truth) writes as a musician, dividing his book into three movements that each open with a poetic recitative. Chapters include a play list that includes music from U2, John Coltrane, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and others, all available for download from Jones's Web site. The melody of this book is clear: "God designed this glory to be poured into you." The harmony of how we find that glory-by cultivating imagination, relinquishing control, expressing gratitude and walking in company with others-is a vital undercurrent. Jones offers counterpoint by describing how glory can be found in the "if only's," right in the middle of interruptions and even darkness. This is a well-written and much-needed book for evangelical Christians searching for God amid life. Study guide included. (Aug.)
