Miller gets more in depth with life issues with A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. Great story and very relevant. It really makes the reader take a second glance at his or her own life and pushes the reader to reevaluate priorities.

It's not very often I pick up a book and read from cover to cover in one sitting. This time I did. All 255 pages of it. ok.I guess I did stop to make myself some ramen noodle soup, but other than that I was completely overwhelmed by Donald Miller's new book. The truth is that I have a copy of his older book, Blue Like Jazz, but have never finished it. It wasn't that it wasn't good, it just didn't overwhelmed me to finish it. I think I'm going to back and finish reading that book too. I guess it wouldn't be too much to say that Donald Miller is probably one of the best story tellers I've come across in a while. I haven't been this mesmerized by an authors ability to pain pictures with words since I read Wilson Rawls' Where the Red Fern Grows as a child. Why? Simply put, he tells a good story. In the opening of his book, Donald writes this: ".if what we choose to do with our lives doesn't make a story meaningful, it won't make a life meaningful either." This book basically is set on explaining this principle. From sharing stories of how he when through the painstaking process of rewriting his life for a movie, to falling for a girl with a cute nose during a grueling trek through the mountains to Machu Picchu, he somehow inspires you to live for something more. And subtly yet profoundly her establishes that this is best understood in living the life of biblical faith. So what would I say about this book? Probably what Max Lucado said when asked to submit a review of the book. "I already want to re-read this book."

This book is perfect if you're someone who is looking to live life for more than whatever it is you are living for now. Although it has a Christian basis the book is more about challenging yourself to take the steps necessary for living a more authentic and fulfilling life. Miller presents his failings and brings the reader along his of analyzing and redefining what it means to live. I would recommend this book to anyone who thinks there is more to life than chasing cars and wealth and all of societies' other drugs.

I am a huge Donald Miller fan, but I think I enjoyed this book best of all of them. I loved the way he wove his story into the story narrative he was communicated. It was challenging and encouraging.

Donald Miller scores another win with this book that essentially tells the (still not finished) story of the (still not finished) film version of his breakthrough book "Blue Like Jazz". Miller is popular in religious circles but I'm not sure I'd really say he's a religious author. Faith is a central issue in his writing certainly. But it's more about the story told in his own rather casual story. Well worth your time.
