While the straight forward writing style of the actual travel adventure was well done, I found the overly patronizing Christian values to be both boring and poorly written. Guess I thought this book would be close to the style and content of "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" because of the title.
I loved this book! And I imagine that many people start reviews that say they either loved or hated the book they were reviewing. But I really did love this book. Don Miller writes exactly what I see in my mind's eye and I am always so appreciative when I find a writer who does that. I like to write my own thoughts out and know that it can be difficult to choose exactly the right words to convey the depth of thought I want to reveal, even to myself. Don Miller does an excellent job of this and the book has me scrambling to find anything else written by him. I'd just like to thank him for writing it, and I hope my deep thoughs can someday catch up to his writing.
This book is fabulous! I could relate so much to Don in his search for the real meaning of knowing Christ. The trip to the Grand Canyon brought back many memories, having hiked it myself on the same trails they took...very refreshing!
The most refreshing piece of Christian literature to come down the pike in quite some time. Any person who feels that modern Christian worship and church practices leave much to be desired will find this book encouraging and hopeful. Besides that, this book is wonderfully written and the story is absolutely entertaining. Share this one with friends.
I enjoyed reading this book so much...not only from the Christian viewpoint but the fun and adventures they had travelling cross country in their vw bus. Having travelled the same route that Don and Paul did, it was fun remembering all the places that they stopped and visited. The writing was so good in this book that you often forgot you were reading a book and not in the bus with Don and Paul. Having 3 vw's of my own, I could relate to their breakdowns and fun. Would highly recommend this book to anyone but especially to all the vw lovers out there.
