Review

Praise for To Be Told
“This is a book worth reading. Because this is a journey worth taking. To know who you are. To make sense of your life. To discover the role God is giving you in His story. That is a life worth living. Thank you, Dan, for a wonderful book!”
–John Eldredge, bestselling author of Wild at Heart and Epic: The Story God Is Telling and the Role That Is Yours to Play

“Dan Allender’s books brim and sizzle with stories–many poignant, many hilarious, and many both. This book takes us to the deepest stories of all–our own stories, the ones that haunt when they are kept secret and liberate when they are told and known. To Be Told is a treasure to be read slowly and with your closest friends.”
–Brian McLaren, pastor, author of A Generous Orthodoxy and A New Kind of Christian

“The concepts in this book have helped define my life in magnificent ways. By further exploring my own story, I discovered God’s story. And it is a beautiful picture of clarity, purpose, knowledge, and celebration. Thank you, God, for giving us Dan Allender.”
–Kathy Troccoli, singer, speaker, and author

“When Dan Allender tells stories, prepare for three things: laughter, tears, and piercing insight. Allender is a great storyteller because he knows that stories are for redeeming, not just passing the time. This book, about story and full of stories, will help you find your own place in the greatest story ever told.”
–Daniel Taylor, author of Tell Me a Story: The Life-Shaping Power of Our Stories

“In To Be Told, Dan Allender creates an intimate, safe place where we feel free to join in the discussion and dive, with a sort of careless courage, head-first into our own stories. I wept as I rediscovered the sacred and divine in my own story, and began to find the connections between my own story threads, an understanding of my long-aching need to be heard, and the glimmers of a holy redemption.”
–Renee Altson, author of Stumbling Toward Faith

“Dan Allender confronts us with the truth that we are storied people, that each of us is a story, and that we are in fact writing our own stories. With humor and grace, Dan invites us not only to write our stories metaphorically, but literally to begin to write our stories. He promises that in so doing we might just possibly find God, with whom we are co-authoring our stories; and we might actually connect in vital and healing ways with ourselves and with each other.”
–Stanley J. Grenz, author of Rediscovering the Triune God and A Primer on Postmodernism
