Scary Close

Dropping the Act and Finding True Intimacy
Format: Hardcover

Availability: In stock

Quick Overview:

From the author of Blue Like Jazz comes a story about finding the keys to a healthy relationship and discovering they are also the keys to a healthy family, a healthy career, and a healthy mind. And it all feels like a conversation with the best kind of friend: smart, funny, true, important. Scary Close is Donald Miller at his best.

After decades of failed relationships and painful drama, Donald Miller decided he’d had enough. Impressing people wasn’t helping him connect with anyone. He’d built a life of public isolation, yet he dreamed of meaningful relationships. So at forty years old he made a scary decision: to be himself no matter what it cost.

From the author of Blue Like Jazz comes a book about the risk involved in choosing to impress fewer people and connect with more, about the freedom that comes when we stop acting and start loving. It is a story about knocking down old walls to create a healthy mind, a strong family, and a satisfying career. And it all feels like a conversation with the best kind of friend: smart, funny, true, important.

Scary Close is Donald Miller at his best.

Review by Rachelle
Overall Rating
I read the title and knew I wanted to read the book.

Scary Close sits somewhere between a memoir and a dialogue on what it looks like to live love. Telling his own story, Don shares with us the questions that guided his journey. The press-release makes it sound like it’s primarily a book on guy/girl relationships and while that’s a part of the story it would be doing the book a huge disservice to limit it to romantic love. This is a story about relating to everyone as your true self with loving character and healthy intentionality. Not every idea resonated with me, still I enjoyed sharing this journey and I’m walking away with some helpful questions for my own life. I recommend this book.

Thomas Nelson provided me with a free digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to write a favorable review. All opinions are my own. (Posted on 3/14/2015)
