To Own a Dragon by Donald Miller


Donald Miller is the founder of the Belmont Foundation, which focuses on providing mentors for young people who need them. His involvement in this organization no doubt stems from his own lack of a father during childhood. Donald Miller shares his thoughts about those years and how they have affected him even into adulthood in his latest book, titled To Own a Dragon. The book is intended for those growing up without a father, and it is good advice interacting with boys and young men who are growing up without a father’s positive influence.

Miller approaches this weighty topic with an open and very honest approach. His writing style is perfectly humorous, deeply insightful, clever, and simple all at once. There are too many prolific thoughts to mention here, but the chapters on the Lord’s Prayer, education, and work ethic were my favorites.
