Dropping the Act and Finding True Intimacy
A New York Times bestseller, Scary Close is Donald Miller at his best.
Scary Close is a book about
- the risk involved in choosing to impress fewer people and connect with more;
- the freedom that comes when we stop acting and start loving; and
- knocking down old walls to create a healthy mind, a strong family, and a satisfying career.
From the author of Blue Like Jazz comes a story about finding the keys to a healthy relationship and discovering they are also the keys to a healthy family, a healthy career, and a healthy mind. And it all feels like the best kind of conversation with a good friend: smart, funny, true, important.
After decades of failed relationships and painful drama, Donald Miller decided he'd had enough. Impressing people wasn't helping him connect with anyone. He'd built a life of public isolation, yet he dreamed of meaningful relationships. So, at forty years old he made a scary decision: to be himself no matter what it cost.
