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 am absolutely speechless! as I came to the end of this book, I must say, it is not easy to get me to this position, but I now have tears streaming down my face. thank goodness for Siri dictation, as I would not have been able to see well enough to type manually. this book has given me a new helper, and new current church about the true mercy, grace, and in measurable love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you, Bart, for sharing such a beautiful story. I will treasure it in my heart forever. I apologize for the typos in this review, as I said, there are tears streaming down my face, so trying to edit, is going to be impossible at this point. Forgive me.

Phenomenal book that will inspire you to live your best life. Bart is a great storyteller and I was thoroughly entertained.
