“Believing in God is as much like falling in love as it is making a decision. Love is both something that happens to you and something you decide upon.”

–Donald Miller

This was a beautiful book that helped break through templated ways of thinking about faith in favor of honesty and a more genuine engagement with some of the challenges and beautiful parts of belief.

To me, this was a particularly helpful book, as I felt strongly like I could relate to Miller's experiences at Reed College at my own university. Definitely one of my essential reads.
