I Can Only Imagine: A Memoir Reviews
A breathtaking story behind the story of how the incredible song 'Imagine' came to life. I have loved this song for a long time, but never knew the inspiration behind the lyrics. Bart takes you on the journey and it's a storyline that could only be written by God how it all comes together. What a beautiful legacy to his father, even though it was a painful life to live. This story is such an awesome testimony of how God can work in your life, how God NEVER gives up on you even if you have given ...more
There’s just something about Bart Millard’s story that touches my heart. His life is the embodiment of God’s love and grace and blessing. He tells of a redemption story that is so emotional because the work of Jesus is emotional! Once he begins a good work in you, you will never be the same. I love that. Jesus loves us so much that he died to save us and gave us a way to be close with the Father.
Bart’s story is a must read.
His writing is conversational and gets right to the truth of his past.
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.
I loved listening to this audio book. The movie was amazing but getting to hear "rest of the story" was even better! Plus it's always a bonus to me when the author reads it himself.
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
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.
