#151: Donald Miller Gets Scary Close [Podcast]

Donald Miller is one of the most influential Christian writers of our day. His books evoke strong reactions, and for many they strike a chord like no work before.

His new book, Scary Close, is available today, and in this interview we discuss how he came to write it, and why the message of this book is so important.

    This was such a great interview. I was able to spot areas where I’m not being true to my original design, and how that causes diminished intimacy in the relationships I value most. I have some direction now to confidently express my authentic identity, and also become a safe place for others to be themselves.

  • Ray,

    Really enjoyed the interview. I literally just picked up his book A Million Miles In A Thousand Years and then your interview episode appeared in my feed. Coincidence? I think not!

    Donald’s comment in the podcast about how he’d rather connect with 3 people than simply reach a thousand (probably butchered the quote, sorry) really hit home with me.

    I often get very frustrated by trying to grow my reach. It never really seems to be fulfilling no matter how many likes, subscribers, downloads, etc.

    BUT, when I truly connect and interact with someone and can hear their story and share an idea or encourage them personally, THAT is an amazing, fulfilling feeling every time.

    And, of course I am often lifted up as much by them as they are by me.

    Thanks for another great show.

    • Mark, yes, that statement from Donald about connecting with just 3 was profound,
