Through Painted Deserts by Donald Miller

Like most people I found Miller with Blue like Jazz, easily his most famous work. Donald Miller has a unique style that is very refreshing in Christian literature. After reading Searching for God knows what, I grabbed a copy of Through Painted Deserts.

Originally titled Prayer and art of Volkswagen maintenance, this book is surprisingly the least spiritually in Miller’s works. As he journeys across the country, Miller journeys through life itself.

Through Painted Deserts is a quintessential Miller style book. If you enjoy his style and distinct sense of humor then you will love this book. This is one of the rare books that made me laugh out loud by myself.
