Publisher's Summary

In Searching for God Knows What, Donald Miller's provocative and funny new audiobook, he explains 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 the 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. Listeners will learn to identify in themselves and within others the universal desire for redemption. They will discover that the gospel of Jesus is the only way to find meaning in life and true redemption.

Mature believers as well as seekers and new Christians will find themselves identifying with the narrative journey unfolded in the book, which is simply the pursuit of redemption.

    "Ruined by the terrible narration"

    I found the narrator very distracting and it ruined my experience of the book. His tone and emphasis was exaggerated and all over the place.
    I preferred 'A Million Miles in a Thousand Years' narrated by Donald Miller himself. I felt like I got a better understanding of the ideas he was discussing. And I've changed my mind about buying another Donald Miller book that was narrated by this narrator.

    "Death by Narrator"

    Like The Matrix? Like Agent Smith? Ever wish Agent Smith would read to you as you fall asleep? This is the book for you!

    Narration is awful. Monotone, pauses and emphasis on words and phrases that have no business being emphasized. REALLY hard to get through. Decent content, but hard to focus.

    "Great content on relationship"


    It met my expectations, and a great way to break from formulaic faith. Donald is well read, and I enjoy the literature he uses to compliment his themes in his books. After I read Donald's writings, I feel brainy and spirituality connected. Thanks!

    "Vintage Donald Miller"

    Easy read, but his newer books are better. It was also disappointing to listen to his book read by someone else after I had listened to his other books read by him.

    "A good book with significant problems."

    I really liked this book but found a lot of aspects troubling, including the author's devotion to Paul, his belief that Moses wrote the totality of the Pentateuch, and his creationism. He also takes occasional swipes at liberals that seem gratuitous. All-in-all it is worth reading. Another problem, I did think the narrator did not suit this book (I have like him in other books and that maybe the problem).
