I Can Only Imagine by [Millard, Bart]

I Can Only Imagine by Bart Millard



“The Story That Inspired the Major Motion Picture.”

The captivating story behind the bestselling single in the history of Christian music—and the man who wrote it

MercyMe’s crossover hit, “I Can Only Imagine,” has touched millions of people around the world. But few know about the pain, redemption, and healing that inspired it. Now Bart Millard, award-winning recording artist and lead singer of MercyMe, shares how his dad’s transformation from abusive father to man of God sparked a divine moment in music history. 
Go behind the scenes of Bart’s life—and the movie based on it—to discover how God repaired a broken family, prepared Bart for ministry through music, and wrote the words on his heart that would change his life forever. I Can Only Imagine is a front-row seat to witnessing God’s presence throughout Bart’s life. Whether falling in love with his childhood sweetheart or mourning his father’s death, founding MercyMe or flailing in the midst of its success, Bart continues to place his trust in God’s plans—plans that continue to surprise and surpass what Bart could have ever imagined.  


My thoughts:

I watched the movie I Can Only Imagine, so I was excited when I was gifted this book and couldn't wait to read it. His childhood was very hard and so heartbreaking. I was so glad he found God and a way to rise above it.  

This book has many details that I didn't catch or were not in the movie. It was just a bit of too much detail sometimes but it was a great back story to his life and the song.  

An heartfelt and uplifting book that will have you believing in the miracles that can happen when you let God in your life.
