"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.

About the Author:

Donald Miller is a writer, campus ministry leader, and speaker. He is the author of Prayer and the Art of Volkswagen Maintenance, a road-trip narrative about a spiritual quest. His writing has appeared in periodicals such as New Man Magazine, Youthwalk, Believe Magazine, and Faith M.D. Miller is active in a small, but resilient and growing campus ministry at Reed College, which has the distinction of being ranked one of the most intellectual colleges and one of the most godless colleges in the country.

From AudioFile:

Donald Miller, who recently rose to national fame after giving a closing prayer at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, shows what many believe are the strengths and weaknesses of the "emerging church" movement. While his heart seems pointed in the right direction, his liberal influences bend the practice of his faith back toward man and away from God, raising more questions than he answers. Scott Brick reads with much snark, illustrating the cynical points wittily but giving the heartfelt elements too much sarcastic flair, creating an uneven read. His laid-back reading style mirrors the slacker style of the writer but ultimately falls flat in his attempts to convey the weight that Miller feels his deeper ideas have. S.M.M.
