Knox comes across as a funny, clever, and likable guy. Overall, the book and the pop culture references are fun and - even for my Gen X self - relatable. At times, I think it went a little too relentlessly self-aware and jokey. Also, mild side-eye at the assumption that no one over 50 has ever heard of a podcast.

This is somewhat of a Christian-lite book. If you're looking for something to better understand faith and Christianity within our cultural context, this is not your best bet. On the plus side, it's entertaining rooted in positive purpose. It's non-threatening, accessible, and may reach people and connect with them in a way that other books wouldn't.

For pop- culture loving Christians, it's comforting to know that Knox and others are out there successfully navigating and positively influencing both worlds. That is no small thing - not everyone attempts, can, or does. It seems Knox is using his God-given gifts in exactly the way he's been designed to do.

Worth a try for readers who are Christian-curious, but still on the fence.

What an entertaining, yet thought-provoking book. In All Things Reconsidered, Knox McCoy explores the idea of reconsideration, of course. He broaches topics from participation trophies to team loyalties and prayer (and a whole lot more) with capable storytelling, hilarious insights, and a heart for authentic belief. Easy to read, his message about reconsideration, allowing for growth and change, proves to be—especially because he is not trying to force his reader to reconsider exactly as he has and believe exactly as he does. Instead, he simply shares his stories in a way that provides food for reconsidering in general.

I enjoy my time with All Things Reconsidered and definitely recommend it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.

I received this book in return for an honest review. I was predisposed to like it since Knox is the co-host of one of my favorite podcasts: The Popcast.

I loved this book. It was laugh-out-loud funny (emphasis on loud). I had a love/hate relationship with his writing. He is a fantastic writer. I cannot emphasize this enough. Therefore I am insanely jealous (the hate part).

Knox tackles some big topics with intelligence and realness. There’s no “This is the way it is and that’s that.” [insert gif of person wiping hands clean] This makes it sounds like a slog. It is not.

The thing that made this unlike other books that work at figuring things out are his stories. They make the reconsidering part more interesting and real. This makes the book sound drippy and all “Here’s the lesson!” but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Bonus points for many Hamilton references. So this really gets 8/5 stars even though I was lost in the brief sportball chapter.

Through a combination of memoir and analysis of pop culture, McCoy explores questions about God, his relationship with his evangelical upbringing, and how best to live in the world. Entertaining with the some good insight--especially into what it looks like to be a socially liberal evangelical Christian. While I certainly enjoyed the book and tore right through it, I find myself struggling a bit to remember much from it having finished it.
