    Bart Millard shares his incredible story, telling about how he penned one of the most touching modern songs – and penned it in ten minutes, in fact. But, of course, as singer Amy Grant tells him, “Bart, you didn't write that song in ten minutes. It took a lifetime.” – very true words. And this books fully tells that story of his...

    “Music gave me hope when I felt hopeless. Love when I felt unloved. A reason to embrace life when I was dying inside.”

    When the film I Can Only Imagine came out a few months ago, my boyfriend and I immediately made plans to go see it. We both teared up multiple times while watching it, and since then I have seen the movie a total of three times. As a writer, the movie was incredibly inspiring for its message of trusting God to move mountains, and to focus on honoring Him over our worldly success from chasing our dreams. About a month ago, I saw an ad for an eBook sale for Mr. Millard’s memoir version of his stor ...more

    Several years back, I was driving down the road. I was listening to a Christian radio station, loving the songs that were there. Then I hear the words, "I can only imagine...." and proceed to listen to the song. By the second verse, I had to pull over and listen closely. By the end of the second verse, I was bawling my eyes out, had my hands raised and was "praying" the song to the Lord. It was emotional and moving, and I knew that there had to be a story behind. This was the start of my love of ...more

    Bart’s story will stick with you long after you close the book or walk out of the movie theater. The bigger story is not what happened in the formation of Mercy Me and the song “I Can Only Imagine.” To me, that becomes immaterial. What is most significant is what God can do with a redeemed life! How having salvation in Him can take someone so hardened and broken and make them new in Christ. Bart’s father seemed absolutely unreachable...but a miracle took place in the form of cancer and softened ...more

    An excellent book. Bart Millard is one of my very favorite Christian artists. The story he relates of his early life is heartbreaking. He shares his heart and his love for his Savior with candor. I recommend this uplifting book. I'm thankful he was willing to tell his story.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Bart Millard's inspiring life story. Now that I've read the book, I'm looking forward to seeing the movie. That way I can hear the songs that have been playing in my mind while reading.

    Wow. Where do I begin? I was working for a small town Christian bookstore when Almost There released. A very good friend grabbed me one day as I came in for my shift and pulled me back to our music section.

    "You've got to hear this!", she exclaimed, telling me the song had been a part of the worship service at her church that week. I slipped on the head phones and within the first few lines I was awestruck.

    Mercy Me, a group I knew nothing about, had captured every thought and imagining I'd ever

    I love biographies and this book was really well written. I had no idea this story was made into a movie until I got the book. Of course I have listened to MercyMe for a long time so I was curious about the story. This book held my interest simply because of how it was written. Sometimes biography type books can be dreadfully slow, but that was not the case with this one. It truly is amazing how some people's lives turn out, especially after going through so many difficulties. This book is a tes ...more
