In Donald Miller's early years, he was vaguely familiar with a distant God. But when he came to know Jesus Christ, he pursued the Christian life with great zeal. Within a few years he had a successful ministry that ultimately left him feeling empty, burned out, and, once again, far away from God. In this intimate, soul-searching account, Miller describes his remarkable journey back to a culturally relevant, infinitely loving God.

The author's voice made annoying by narration?

Any additional comments?

I'm afraid I found the narrator's inflection irritating. It lent the text a sort of self-satisfied tone which is a bad recipe for a book about mostly focused on the author's internal reflection. I'm sure the narrator's a nice guy and all, I just don't like his reading style.
