Editorial Reviews


Working with a life coach to create your life plan can cost hundreds of dollars. But we've made life planning efficient and affordable. Storyline 2.0, the book, is the key to the entire process.

When you complete the Storyline process, you'll have a life plan that will give you clarity and direction for living a great story.

To accomplish this, we've blended the discipline of storytelling with the therapeutic philosophy of acclaimed psychologist Viktor Frankl. Over the last several years, we've distilled this process into eight modules that will help you:

*Understand where you fit within God's story.
*Interact with God in a functional rather than dysfunctional way.
*Understand you share agency with God to make an impact.
*Clarify your ambitions.
*Get off the couch and get started.
*Embrace rather than avoid conflict.
*Envision climactic scenes that will prove more motivating than setting goals.
*Filter your decisions through a life theme.
*Inspire others by living a great story.

I got this about a month ago and worked through it in the following two weeks. I'm in my early sixties and have the majority of my physical and earthly spiritual life behind me. Still, I found the workbook helpful. It has not been a "reset" for me but going through the exercises definitely helps me focus on applying the years ahead to follow and collaborate with God to "save many lives."

The book helps the readers see our earthly lives as subplots in God's eternal storyline. God's purpose is to "save many lives"; ours should be the same.

Miller skillfully leads the reader through a series of exercises to review his or her life to-date, and note the ups and downs. The reader is to describe a "theme" for his/her life. Then, reviewing the "downs", Miller helps the reader discover the redemptive perspectives, i.e. how God uses the major negative events for redemptive purposes.

Then it's a big step forward to note our roles. A role may be a parent, husband, worker, employer, or whatever role we see ourselves playing in God's storyline and in our subplots among our spheres of influence. We are then asked to list our ambitions or goals, followed by a number of exercises, all done prayerfully before God, to result in the visualization of the achievement of the goals (celebrations) and an action plan (inciting incidents) to take us there.

The "methodology" is not earth-shatteringly new but its spiritual context is what makes it really useful for those who seriously pursue deeper meanings and more worthwhile purposes in life than just living out a life driven by self-centered and temporal desires.

This isn't your typical Don Miller book.

To be honest, after the first couple chapters (which took about 10 minutes to read), I was ready to give this book a 1 star review. Many of the words and phrases Don uses makes it seem like Jesus is "the round peg to fill the round hole in your life" mantra that he has been against all these years. I felt like Don had bought into something and had become a different person.

Well, in many respects, he has. If you've read all of Don's books, it's like we've seen him grow up (especially in A Million Miles in a Thousand Years). He's a changed man. His passion for The Mentoring Project is evident. He actively wants to help change people's lives for the better, instead of just the sharing the (wonderful) thoughts in his head.

So this book should be different, because it has a different purpose.

The price is a little high (part of the reason I gave it 4 stars), but the issue at hand is quality over quantity. There are a handful of new ideas that I've had to work through that is well worth the price.

This book, and audio book, has really been helping me get through my transition period after graduating college. Yes I've been in a job and make good money, but it isn't following my passions and ambitions. This book came at the perfect time. I am at the process of discovering what it means to be Story Formed, how to live with an overall goal in mind and not just live today. While again I've been on this discovery process for the last 4 months, this book has been a good reflector to tell me that, yeah this is totally what God wants me to do.

Don Miller is a funny, sarcastic and probably one of the most influential authors of my generation, when I was attending college we gave his book 'Blue like Jazz' to every freshman that came to Western Michigan University that said they wanted a gift bag with Swag. And Swag is what Don Miller provides, this book included.

Yes this book is $30, that was a high price tag for me, but the content from this book is well worth that, the content from this book is conference level that I would easily pay $200 for. At a time where the economy is considered poor, and a generation is graduating but not attaining jobs that satisfy, this book builds that decision filter to live a life worth living, live a life worth getting up for, living a life where you don't have 3 alarms to wake you up, but just one. The decision filter is life changing, and I can't wait to see how this book changes the world.

This is the start of a journey, that we all are living it together.

In a time when we avoid conflict as a culture and at the same time put a high premium on living well, Don has given us the gift of this invaluable material to make sense of life. Storyline shows us the reality of God's story in a way that is Christian, biblical and non-religious.

It will help you to find clarity of desire and why you are not where you want to be. Specifically it will awaken you to the story you are meant to co-author with God, and the conflicts that you will have overcome to do so.

After attending Storyline in Portland with Don, my life has never been the same. Now I can't wait to share this material in my community!
