Searching For God Knows What by Donald Miller
This book encourages you to examine your life and what it really means to be a Christian. He talks about how christianity should be a relationship and not a formula.
A lot of people I follow on Twitter have read a couple of books by Donald Miller and have loved them. There was so much expectation when I ordered this book. I could not wait to read it when it arrived. I love reading Donald Miller's blog posts from time to time and there were high expectations. I was very disappointed. I had to force myself to read every page of this book. It was a fight until the end. I just could not "get" this book. I think if I was to listen to it and not read it, I might be able to understand it better. I have never read a book that was written the way Donald Miller writes. I am sure if I could get past the fact that it is very different, I might be able to enjoy it. I wish I could say I loved it. I really do, but I cannot honestly say I did. If a friend asked if I'd recommend it, I would probably suggest checking it out of the library before buying the book.
I received this book free from Booksneeze as part of their book review bloggers program. I did not have to submit a positive review. The opinions expressed here are my own. Thanks Thomas Nelson!
