Mark’s #1 – A Million Miles In a Thousand Years by Donald Miller

So for the first book of 2010, Ron gave me a copy of Donald Miller’s book – I’m glad he did.  Given the ‘emergent church’ affiliations of Miller, I probably would have avoided this book if I came across it in a bookstore or on amazon.com.

This is the first book written by Miller that I’ve read.  He’s a very good storyteller, which made the book very enjoyable to read.   This book is about the importance of living your life with an awareness that your life is a story.   How compelling would a movie of your life be on the big screen?  Would it be worth watching? Do you live with compelling goals, adventures, risks, and dreams?

I would recommend this book with one caution:  As my friend who gave me the book said, “Donald Miller would really benefit from a basic systematic theology course.”   What I like about the book is that is serves as another reminder to “not waste your life.”  What I don’t like is the man-centered narcissism prevalent throughout the book.

Here’s the link to the book on Amazon:
