I Can Only Imagine: A Memoir Reviews
Uplifting and real, this book does not disappointment. To know that after you've been horribly hurt as a child that you can forgive with God's help. Loved the back story of MercyMe. Great positive book.
So inspiring! Wonderful memoir and story behind the creation of the bestselling Christian song of all time. Can't wait for the movie.
Decided to read this after watching the movie. It was a nice read but think it’s a rare case where the movie is sufficient.
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.”

An affecting memoir by the lead singer of MercyMe, a band whose music has inspired and touched so many lives in such a powerful and wonderful way. Bart's story shines a light on the redemptive power and grace of Jesus Christ and how His love can totally transform even the hardest, most hurting heart. Such a moving and inspiring story.
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
