Donald Miller *swoon*
I'm like the girl in love with the quarterback in high school. Let's face it, EVERY girl was in love with the quarterback. He was cute, full of charm, drove a jeep and had nice parents. That's what he seemed like. Because most of the girls crushing on the quarterback have never spoken to him.
In this case, the quarterback is Donald Miller and although seemingly cute and full of charm, what makes him so worthy of affection is his every man, honest and thoughtful writing. We should be friends. I don't go to football games. I give away copies of "Blue Like Jazz" and "Searching for God Knows What" and have him listed on my Facebook page though. I'm smitten. Along with thousands of other 30-something single girls searching for God knows what.
Anyway, he has a new book coming out and you can read the first few unedited chapters here.
Have a look. It may be what you get for Christmas.
