Insightful and entertaining - a worthwhile read
on August 22, 2012
This was my first book by Donald Miller and the first book to be read by my new neighborhood book club. I was pleasantly surprised to find it a compelling series of essays on...what the author thinks we're looking for in our lives and why...Mr. Miller has an interesting take on Christianity, psychology, and how the two are connected, as well as what we are searching for in our lives. There are also essays on the circus, morality, and a very unique take on Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet - and yes, he manages to connect them. In his musings on why he has done some of the things he's done...there is a lot that rang true to me (i've got lots of self help books on my shelves too...) and things I totally disagreed with; still, I'd recommend this highly, not only for the author's interesting view of the world...but also his compelling writing style. Read it and we'll talk amongst ourselves.
