Publisher's Summary

Journeys that begin in brokenness rarely follow a straight road to healing. There are twists and turns - and setbacks - on the path of repentance.

Night Driving tells the story of a pastor and seminary professor whose moral failures destroyed his marriage and career, left his life in ruins, and sent him spiraling into a decade-long struggle against God. Forced to fight the demons of his past in the cab of the semi-truck he drove at night through the Texas oil fields, Chad Bird slowly began to limp toward grace and healing.

Drawing on his expertise as an Old Testament scholar, Bird weaves together his own story, the biblical story, and the stories of fellow prodigals as he peels back the layers of denial, anger, addiction, and grief to help listeners come face-to-face both with their own identities and with the God who alone can heal them.

Powerful story.

An amazing story of fall and redemption. At times, you loathe the author... then love him. The narrator perfectly captured the emotion. Highly recommended!!

Already my favorite book...

Iv had what I thought was a very bumpy ride in this christian journey myself. Broken marriages ,broken promises and broken dreams. Before I read Chads book Night Driving: Notes from a Prodigal Soul, I felt alone and abandoned because of my backsliding years that left nothing but sorrow and heartache in its wake...Thanks to this gem of a book Iv returned to my first Love and have realized that the Father NEVER abandons his children...Thank you Chad for being so transparent and vulnerable. God bless you brother:)

Amazing story of loss and forgiveness!!

Chad Bird tells his story. He pulls no punches. Chad made mistakes and then owns those mistakes on the path to forgiveness. I lost myself in the audio version. So, so good. I cried, I smiled, and I thought. Wow. What a book! Listen to this book. Then, listen again! Thank you, Chad.

A must read for religious people and life coaches

What great insight to lying to ourselves, overcoming pride and understanding the scriptures better.

Inspirational 🚚 🚚 🚚


This autobiographical book is a synopsis of Chad Bird's journey from extreme highs to devastating lows in his personal and professional (seminary professor) life. I found it to be very engaging and the parallels between his life and Scripture as he runs from and to God. He holds nothing back.

Trevor Thompson has the perfect voice to narrate the story.

While this is a religious account, it is not 'in your face' or judgmental. Thought-provoking is the phrase that comes to mind...

*I received this book in exchange for writing an unbiased review.

Prodigal Soul

This is a very good book and have to listen all the way. We see ourselves for who we really are, sinners. But best of all we hear of the Lord who loves, redeems, and saves us by his love and grace.
