In Donald Miller’s book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, the author takes us through the process of editing a life in order to write a story, his life to be exact. As always, Miller mixes humor with insight to share his wisdom about how to intentionally live a life as a story with a purpose.
I love the fact that Miller is the reader for his own book. When the author is the reader, I know that the inflection given to the reading is what was intended. Sarcasm and passion can travel only so far across the written word, but when it is read aloud, new depth and understanding is revealed.
It’s almost too easy to listen to this audiobook. It is deceptive in its simplicity when the concepts and ideas are so powerful and profound. I think the worth of books like this lie in the power to actually affect the way you look at life or live life after the last page is read. Things that fit into this category are not common. When something comes along that actually changes you, it is remarkable.
I believe my life is different after reading this book. I want to purposefully create a story for myself and my family. Miller paints a beautiful picture of a scene after death where we sit with God under a tree and share with Him the stories from our lives. I pray that I have many stories to share with God and to hear Him say, “Yes, I remember that. I was there. These are good stories!”
