Searching for God Knows What (Donald Miller)

I’m busy re-reading Donald Miller’s Searching for God Knows What, one of his books that I believe is highly under-rated.

Here’s a great quote from the book:

“… if the gospel of Jesus is just some formula I obey in order to get taken off the naughty list and put on a nice list, then it doesn’t meet the deep need of the human condition, it doesn’t interact with the great desire of my soul, and it has nothing to do with the hidden (or rather, obvious) language we are all speaking.

But if it is more, if it is a story about humanity falling away from the community [God] that named it, and an attempt to bring humanity back to that community, and if it is more than a series of ideas, but rather speaks directly into this basic human need we are feeling, then the gospel of Jesus is the most relevant message in the history of mankind.”

(Chapter Three: Feet of Trees)
