I Can Only Imagine: A Memoir – Bart Millard and Robert Noland

I Can Only Imagine chronicles the story behind the number one selling Christian music single of all time.  The emotionally charged story of Bart Millard’s life and specifically his relationship with his father is a testament to the power of God in the lives of his children.  Whether you are a MercyMe fan or not, this book is an enjoyable read and provides insights and details that are not in the recently released movie version.

While this complimentary book was provided for review by Thomas Nelson Publishing, no other compensation was given. All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.
