In Searching for God Knows What, Donald Miller's provocative and funny new book, he shows readers that the greatest desire of every person is the desire for redemption. Every person is constantly seeking redemption (or at least the feeling of it) in his or her life, believing countless gospels that promise to fix the brokenness. Typically their pursuits include the desire for fulfilling relationships, successful careers, satisfying religious systems, status, and escape. Miller reveals how the inability to find redemption leads to chaotic relationships, self-hatred, the accumulation of meaningless material possessions, and a lack of inner peace. Readers will learn to identify in themselves and within others the universal desire for redemption. They will discover that the gospel of Jesus is the only way to find meaning in life and true redemption. Mature believers as well as seekers and new Christians will find themselves identifying with the narrative journey unfolded in the book, which is simply the pursuit of redemption.

"Scott Brick narrates the author's message that everyone seeks redemption, though Miller's belief is based more on personal experience than research. With genuine angst Brick relates the author's frustration with his church experiences as a teenager and his return to faith some time later. In an effortless-sounding delivery, Brick portrays the author's dissatisfaction with the way Christianity is taught and practiced today. He describes the formulaic models of many churches, which result in mere bullet points in Sunday sermons. Speaking with warmth and authority, he stresses the author's argument for redemption and the pursuit of faith. Christianity is a fluid relationship, Miller insists, a matter of the heart unlikely to be captured by any formula. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
