“I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn’t resolve. . . . I used to not like God because God didn’t resolve. But that was before any of this happened.”

In Donald Miller’s early years, he was vaguely familiar with a distant God. But when he came to know Jesus Christ, he pursued the Christian life with great zeal. Within a few years he had a successful ministry that ultimately left him feeling empty, burned out, and, once again, far away from God. In this intimate, soul-searching account, Miller describes his remarkable journey back to a culturally relevant, infinitely loving God.

    " This was a thought provoking book on Christianity---like it says-nonrelgious views. Not Orthodox---kinda like myself. I really enjoyed this book-not only interesting, but entertaining as well. "

    " I dont know why so many people I know rave about this book. It def has it's moments but was not the life changer I was thinking it may be. There were also some things I'm not quite sure I agree with throughout the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy | 5/28/2011

    " Vulnerable honest, wise, thought provoking, Bible-centric, and humorous. A re-read. And someday I'll find it on a shelf again (or on my e-reader) and read it again. "

    " LOVED some chapters (finding the right church, penquin sex, what you think you're in love) but the writing style and language is less the fluent and not overall very impressive. Good message, bad author style. "
