Book Review – All Things Reconsidered

All Things Reconsidered
by Knox McCoy

Every artist, who has their first hit, is faced with a challenge.

How do you release a second offering?

It has to be similar enough to the first one to still sound like the hit that people have come to love, but not be so similar that people find it repetitive to the first presentation.

This happens all the time with music, but can also be true for books. This was a fear I faced when presented with the opportunity to read Knox’s second book.

Book Description:

If we ask just one question, does everything fall apart? 

In All Things Reconsidered, popular podcaster Knox McCoy uses a unique blend of humor, pop culture references, and personal stories to show how a willingness to reconsider ideas can actually help us grow ourselves, our lives, and our beliefs. 


In this laugh-out-loud defense of reconsideration, Knox dives into topics like:
Are participation trophies truly the worst?
Is it really worth it to be a ride-or-die sports fan?
Do we believe in God because of the promise of heaven—or the threat of hell?
Does prayer work? Is anyone even there?


This book is the catalyst we need to courageously ask the questions that will lead to a deeper understanding of ourselves—and God. It’s time to start reconsidering.

My Take:

With the same fun-loving humor we know and love from Knox, along with the thoughtful and poignant storytelling we were introduced to in The Wondering Years, All Things Reconsidered balances on that line between comfort in what we know and newness that keeps us coming back for more.

Reading this book was like having a conversation with an old friend – you might have been there for some of the stories, but the retelling is still hilarious and learning something new from someone you’ve known is delightful.

Also, don’t miss the footnotes!

Reconsideration is the difference between a faith that is for display purposes only and one that can lead you out of captivity.

The world is wide enough for us to disagree with each other without resorting to petty dismissiveness.

It’s no longer enough to just react to an issue or idea before moving on. It’s our obligation to dig a little deeper to more completely understand it.
