Book Review - Searching for God Knows What

Searching for God Knows What by Donald Miller is a book intending to shake the traditional Christian’s belief about the way things are in many churches today. Miller is not apprehensive to knock organized religion. Being a Christian is all about relationship, about falling in love, about the person of God. The language, duties, ceremonies, etc that go with church are secondary. That idea is not new to me, but several insights in the book were.
This book was somewhat political. And political in a liberal-leaning way which bothered me somewhat. Miller dissed Fox News and talked highly of Clinton and Carter, for example. Those things made me mad, to be honest. However, his engaging conversational tone, relevant stories, unique observations, and keen analogies kept me compelled.

To be entertained, to learn, to make you think are all reasons to pick up this book. Just beware of the liberal lean which Miller warns is not a reason to negate things either.

This book was given to me to be reviewed by Tommy Nelson Publishing.  The above thoughts and ideas are mine and were not for profit.
