Reviews - What do our customers think?
scratch your whiskers  Oct 4, 2008
I would rank this book 3rd out of the 4 books that Miller has written. It is still fabulous, but not as geared towards me as Through Painted Deserts and Searching for God Knows What. And I am anxiously awaiting the release of Let Story Guide You, which, contrary to our order sheets, has not come out yet, but that's not the point.

In this 192 page book Donald Miller and John MacMurray explore the spiritual significance of what it is like for a male to grow up without a Father figure. They then go on to explore Miller's personal experience of allowing God to become that fairy tale like figure in his life. Thus, the title of the book comes from Miller saying that having a father was like owning a dragon, "nothing more than a fairytale."

As usual Miller's writing style captivates the reader. The way in which he subtly draws his audience in a exposes his inner thoughts and feelings is fascinating, not only as a reader, but for anyone who has ever aspired to write anything(which is about 83% of you, I know)

He explores the problem of misguidance for those who grew up without a father, the discipline needed to become as one under a father, and then he goes into the humanity of spirituality and the true key to masculinity/manhood. The chapter on manhood was really powerful.

Again, Miller explores a whole new region with his uncanny ability to articulate his streaming conciousness, as prompted by the simple things in life, in a profound and mesmerizing way. I recommend this book to, obviously, those who grew up without Fathers, or a Father who was not a spiritual leader. But I believe that anybody can find some worth within the pages of this book. It will make you scratch your whiskers in thoughts.
An Educators Perspective  Sep 2, 2008
As an educator with both parents still together after 50+ years, this book is a HUGE insight into what more and more young men face growing up without a male role model. Often our words reflect our own experiences, which can alienate those we are trying to help.
good piece of writing  Aug 13, 2008
Even for those had a father growing up, there are still things a human father will fail at. Miller helps us to comprehend the greatness of the word "Father".
One of Miller's Best  Jul 29, 2008
To Own A Dragon is, I believe, one of Donald Miller's best books. He is more well known for Blue Like Jazz and Through Painted Deserts, but I think this one is one of his most insightful. He has always been very honest about the fact that he grew up without a father and this book dives into that story much deeper. As one who grew up with a distant father the book was very healing and spoke to me by someone who knew what it was like.

This is a wonderful and healing book for anyone, male or female, who is struggling with a father never present.
A Memoir of Growing Up Without a Father  Jul 16, 2008
In his typical laid-back style, Donald Miller explores the effects that growing up without a father had on him. To Own a Dragon must be understood within the genre of "memoir." It is not meant to an exhaustive exploration, only what the author felt and dealt with while going through the event he is writing about.

I appreciate Miller's honesty, his straight forward approach the what a child experiences. I grew up without a father in the home, and found this to be an enlightening and encouraging read. I found myself constantly saying, "I am not alone! I am not the only one who feels this way."

I highly recommend this book to anyone who struggles having grown up without a father. It will not answer all the may not answer any of the questions...but it will let you know that you are not the only one.
