Scary Close: Dropping the Act and Finding True Intimacy

New York Times bestselling memoirist Donald Miller takes readers on his year-long journey to learn to abandon performance-based relationships and find real intimacy.

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

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.

Scary Close is an audiobook about the risk involved in choosing to impress fewer people and connect with more, about the freedom that comes when we stop acting and start loving. It is a story about knocking down old walls to create a healthy mind, a strong family, and a satisfying career. And it all feels like a conversation with the best kind of friend: smart, funny, true, important.

Scary Close is Donald Miller at his best.

    Sorry Donald Miller. I’m giving this 3 stars. Don’t get me wrong. It’s vulnerable and honest. And on the other hand it’s totally one note. Besty saved you. We get it. But chapters and chapters about one person wore me out. If you’d had more stories about other people who you shared intimacy with it would have meant more for me.

    Also…I adore this author but…he was a little to “Guys are guys and Girls are girls” for me. Yawn.

    I admire Donald Miller. I admire his courage. I admire his tenacity. And I admire his ability to tell a story. Make no mistake – this guy can write!

    Admiring Don Miller does not mean I agree with everything he believes. There’s a good deal I disagree with. Yet I appreciate his gifts and insight. For me, reviewing a Don Miller book is like walking a tight rope. On one hand, I have conservative friends who question why I even read the guy.

    Admiring Don Miller does not mean I agree with everything he believes. There’s a good deal I disagree with. Yet I appreciate his gifts and insight. For me, reviewing a Don Miller book is like walking a tight rope. On one hand, I have conservative friends who question why I even read the guy. But Miller fans label my critique as “narrow” or “too evangelical.”

    Scary Close addresses the subject of relational intimacy. The book includes some ideas that are commendable and will be of help to many people.

    Strengths in Scary Close

    1. It is filled with a stunning degree of transparency.

    Miller opens up like never before. He is quick to confess some of his previous relational blunders. He admits his propensity to generate applause. Yet in a moment of unfettered honesty, he admit that “applause is a quick fix. And love is an acquired taste.” This kind of openness and honesty sets the stage for the book and never lets up. Miller shares his heart in a way that is noteworthy and encouraging.

    2. It cherishes authenticity and rejects hypocrisy.

    Scary Close is packed with moments of authenticity which help readers get to the very heart of the story. The subtitle accurately conveys what Miller is after, namely – “dropping the act and finding true intimacy.”

    At an important juncture, Miller discusses the toxic nature of judgment, that is, being judged unfairly by other people – for being ourselves. The author suggest that this poisonous habit has invaded many relationships which “keeps us from connecting with other people.” Ultimately, Miller does a good job at identifying some of the relational land mines the hinder genuine intimacy.

    3. It celebrates human relationships.

    The most memorable thing about Scary Close is that it celebrates human relationships. The author discusses his most important relationships, the chief of which is his wife and shows how true intimacy develops. Miller is to be commended for his willingness to share from the heart and allow readers to see how his heart operates.

    Weaknesses in Scary Close

    Strengths considered, there is a missing ingredient in Scary Close. That ingredient is the gospel of Jesus Christ. Yes, the author confesses his allegiance to Jesus. And the author refers to God and finding rest in him. This much is true. But the road to authentic intimacy (which is a necessary path to travel) is paved with psychological tips and therapy which is not grounded in Scripture. Such a critique is bound to draw fire from Miller fans. Yet Miller himself urges readers to avoid being careful, a practice which led to a temporary bout with “writer’s block.” I apply that well-placed advice when offering critique.

    So while there is much to commend in this book, in the final analysis it falls short by jettisoning the gospel. Since the essence of the book is about redemption and reconciliation and the horizontal plane, it is disappointing to bypass the promises of the gospel which offer both horizontal redemption and reconciliation with people and vertical redemption and reconciliation with God through his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Indeed, resting in one’s relationship with God through Jesus is the key to wholeness which leads to relationships which are known for authenticity, health, and intimacy.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.

    I devoured this book, as I always do with Don’s writing. I feel ok calling him that because his books feel moe like a conversation with a friend than a traditional book. While A Million Miles… will probably always be my favorite of his books, this one hits a little more close to home. He details how his intimacy problems kept him from getting married until he was 42. As a 30 year old who hasn’t dated much, I see a lot of the same trends in my own life. You get to a point where it’s just more c
