Item Description...
Overview
In Searching for God Knows What critically acclaimed author Donald Miller demonstrates how many people undertake millions of gospels or systems for fixing their brokenness, and why all of them are fruitless except for the gospel of Jesus.Searching for God Knows What shows readers that the greatest desire of every person is the desire for redemption. Every person is constantly seeking redemption (or at least the feeling of it) in his or her life, believing countless gospels that promise to fix our brokenness. Typically their pursuits include the desire for fulfilling relationships, successful careers, satisfying religious systems, status, and escape. Miller reveals how the inability to find redemption leads to chaotic relationships, self-hatred, the accumulation of meaningless material possessions, and a lack of inner peace. Readers will learn to identify within themselves and others the universal desire for redemption. They will discover that the gospel of Jesus is the only way to a meaningful life and the only way to find true redemption. Mature believers as well as seekers and new Christians will find themselves identifying with the narrative journey as it unfolds in the book, which is simply the pursuit of redemption.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Ridiculously Relevant  Nov 12, 2008
I had just recently read Searching For God Knows What for the third time while taking some time out from work and study - getting away from everything to think about everything. Getting out the box to think about the box and what it really looks like, because its often hard to tell when you're on the inside.

Do you ever find books that you conclude to be decent reads, until one chapter comes along that ends up blasting you away with so much truth and potency that you can't help to place the book amongst the greats? Thats what happened with me and this book. What Donald Miller converses about the lifeboat and the need for people outside ourselves to tell us how much we are worth was just so honest and real and blazingly true, i hurriedly recommended it to every single friend i could think of.

Donald discusses (amongst many other things) that ever since the fall, we (humanity) constantly look at things outside ourselves to validate our existence, to tell us that we are okay - that we are worth something and can contribute something to society. And forgive me if this is a universal truth that everybody should learn in 11th grade psychology, but just the way that he puts it, with such honesty, makes you really review why you have turned out the way you have and why you do certain things, whether it be to gain other peoples acceptance or love or whatever it is they are willing to give. This book all up makes me really look deep inside, to wonder if i do things to push myself up the invisible social ladder, or to have a better position in the life boat (see the book).

I think Donalds chapter on the lifeboat theory should be read by everyone that can read, and for those that can't read someone should read it to them. It is so needed in my generation especially (gen Y's) and gives good insight into why we are the way we are. The way don puts all this across in such a casual and truthful discussion will keep you humble and inward looking for days after you finishing reading. This book deserves a chance.
 
Entertaining, Fresh Perspective on Christianity  Oct 29, 2008
This book is an entertaining, fresh perspective on Christianity. The author makes some insightful, amusing observations, rambling from one topic of the Christian life to the next. I found myself smiling often as I moved through the pages, wondering how in the world a person could make such a profound point in such a rudimentary way. I would have given the book four or five stars if it had possessed more content. Still, for an entertaining, fresh perspective on a relationship with Jesus, it is worth the price and the read.
 
Compassionate Truth  Aug 2, 2008
Donald Miller speaks with a heart that has a relationship with Jesus. His criticisim with making faith a formula spoke to me and I agree with his emphasis that it is all about relationship...not a perfected theology. This is a book for Christians who don't recognize what the American church has become.
 
Faith and You to Know and Understnd  Jul 29, 2008
We, all of us chrsitians, are always or seemingly always searching for something. Faith is knowing and trusting with His love, God's Word. Almost everyone has his or her definition of faith and we are always searching. So who am I to really review and comment on this well-written heart-felt touch of the writer as he leads those who need this touch of writing in a faithful way. Grab it and read it!
 
Eye opening!  Jun 20, 2008
What a refreshing view of Christianity! I love Miller's offbeat way of sharing the truth through stories and observations. (He doesn't speak "Christianese".) This book showed me and reminded me of whom Jesus is and was, not the version that was taught in Sunday School. Today's Christianity has missed the boat on some things and Miller reminds us of this. A timely, modern reminder not to be the Pharasees we read about in scripture. Please read this as a poignant reminder of how we need to show the real Jesus to the world. My 19 year old son is now reading it. Pass these truths around and watch the climate change.
