What would it take to make it compelling enough you would want it shared, bigger than life, with the world? Part of Don Miller's life, as described in his previous book Blue Like Jazz, was considered worthy ... Well-Written Disappointment

On 10/7 GraceDependent wrote: Donald Miller’s newest release, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years attempts to tell a story.  It’s a story of how to live a story actually.  Miller attempts to inspire the reader to re-write the story of their lives; to refuse to settle for the mundane and metamorphose into something greater.

On 9/29 Aaron wrote: Donald Miller frustrates me. He is an incredibly gifted writer. His self-effacing style is charming and engaging; truly, he turns self-deprecation into an art form. It’s rare when you find someone who is not afraid to portray themselves as a bit of a doofus. He understands how to make jokes that are ... A pleasant, if somewhat unfulfilling, way to spend a couple hours

On 8/1 Amanda Markel wrote: Donald Miller may be a bestselling author, but A Million Miles in a Thousand Years is just another typical self-help book disguised as a personal journey. It's a Christian tile, but "self-help" is antithetical to the Christian life. God is more than a storyteller, and you don't just seek to change your ... How Can You "Live a Better Story?"

Although the premise of the book is that everyone's life is a "story" with scenes that you can choose to make meaningful and interesting, it was hard for me to concentrate ... Look at me, I'm so great!
