I Can Only Imagine A Memoir By Bart Millard with Robert Noland Review
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.

Cassandra's Review- To gain healing and trust is a very hard notion if you have been victimized in any capacity at any age. To gain emotional comfort in your own skin is also a struggle after abuse. To look in the mirror and know your going to be alright is the best feeling and to read this book takes you on a journey of a struggle through to a finish that is worth checking out. I feel that even if you have not suffered in life, this book will still reach your heart and spirit. After reading it and then listening to the song again it was so much more then before and worth the read.
