"Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality"

- by Donald Miller

Anyone read this yet? It's not very new, I've been meaning to read it for a couple years now. Kind of an autobiography set in Houston. I finally did read a couple chapters one evening at the Barking Dog Coffee Lounge (swanky downtown coffee lounge with live music owned by my good Christian friends Joey and Tawnya Crawford). I love how Donald Miller's writing flows and reads.

If anyone else has read it, pipe up and we may discuss it - did you get anything out of it? Any particular chapter meant more than the others?

No, not even heard of it till now. How's the read going? I'm in the early chapters of The Shack by Wm. Paul Young. Gripping...

It's going. I love the writing, it's just difficult to stop for a few minutes and read. It helps that we got rid of cable smile

I've read good reviews of it by several people. So far they were right. Some very good points in the first few chapters - questions to consider.

Cool, let me know what you think when he starts discussing 'why do bad things happen to good people'.
