I read Searching For God Knows What last year when I was going through a time of searching in my life. Searching for me and for Him. I am a Donald Miller fan because I appreciate his honesty and at times his bluntness. He tells unique stories that can make you laugh and also have you sitting quietly pondering things for hours.
One of the reasons I like Donald Miller’s writings is because of his use of analogies. This book in particular uses the lifeboat and it seems appropriate with the title. I like analogies because it gives us something to contemplate further.
Donald Miller brings about main questions but does not answer them all. I like that. I like reading a book and coming out of it pondering my life and Him. Without having the author tell me what I should think or feel.
Each chapter of Searching for God Knows What gives you a different perspective…and it all comes together with the powerful thought… you are not alone…in this searching and wandering.
About the book:
Hysterically funny, wryly provocative, and disquietingly insightful, Searching for God Knows What invites readers to examine their deep need for redemption, to feel it, know it, and live like it is true in their lives.
Miller weaves phenomenal characters and true-to-life spectacles into his acclaimed memoir style to enrich, inspire, entertain, and ultimately challenge readers to see life in a new way. He shows that one of the greatest desires of every person is the desire for redemption, to have brokenness repaired. Instead of the chaotic relationships, self-hatred, wreckless consumerism, and anxiety that overrun a life without redemption, Miller uncovers the beauty and power of the Gospel to fulfill one of our deepest needs.
I received this book free from Booksneeze as part of their book review bloggers program. The thoughts expressed are my own.
