From the author of Blue Like Jazz comes a book about the risk involved in choosing to impress fewer people and connect with more, about the freedom that comes when we stop acting and start loving. It is a story about knocking down old walls to create a healthy mind, a strong family, and a satisfying career. And it all feels like a conversation with the best kind of friend: smart, funny, true, important. Scary Close is Donald Miller at his best.
"Outstanding book frustrating recording"
In This Is Awkward, Sammy Rhodes talks directly, honestly, and hilariously (because sometimes we need to laugh) about the most painfully uncomfortable subjects in our lives. In chapters like "Parents Are a Gift (You Can't Return Them)" and "D is for Depression", he boldly goes where most of us fear to tread, revealing that we can be liberated by the embrace of a god who knows the most shameful things about us and loves us all the same. Because nothing is too awkward for God.
"This was awkward lived up to its name"
