The captivating story behind the best-selling 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.

Bart's story of his early childhood abuse was unthinkable and heart-wrenching to say the least...I cannot imagine, absolutely no pun intended. :( Thank the Lord for praying mamaws and God-called youth leaders--as Bart's nightmare life came full circle, the evidence of God's redemptive power is undeniable. God's fingerprints are all over Bart's life and the blessings--it is absolutely no coincidence. He brings beauty from our ashes, glory to Him.

I didn’t want it to end. I enjoyed everything about it...the story, the fact he was so real about his life, and all I learned about Jesus through his life story. It makes me want to see the movie again!
I really enjoy your passion for Grace I'm currently enjoying reading The Hurt & the Healer by you and dr. Andrew Farley only wish it was made available on audio
Bart's story is a part of the bigger tapestry of this life. God's care for this part demonstrates His intensive care for each part of the lives of His children is very uplifting and encouraging to this child. Listen if you need an example of how God works all things together....
I listened to this before seeing the movie. I wish movie included more scenes from book/audio. movie was good but the audio/ book was better.
Bart, you inspire me as a songwriter, a musician, a father, a husband and a Christian... thank you....
