I Can Only ImagineA Memoir
By Bart Millard with Robert Noland Published by Thomas Nelson
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.
"I Can Only Imagine" by Mart Millard is a memoir that isn't for the faint of heart. It has moments of darkness and also moments where God shows Himself so faithful. However, I would not recommend reading this if you need healing from any kind of abuse and have not sought out healing as this book will be a trigger. The song that inspires us all is one that Bart lived through his life and only he can tell the story. Without going into a lot of details or giving too much away, this book will make you think, cry and even give God the applause for how He can redeem the impossible situations. This book was not only a great book, but an even greater story. I give this book 4.5/5 stars. If you love Mercy Me' music, you will enjoy this book and even the upcoming movie.
