“Dan Allender’s books brim and sizzle with stories—many poignant, many hilarious, and many both. This book takes us to the deepest stories of all—our own stories, the ones that haunt when they are kept secret and liberate when they are told and known.
To Be Told 
is a treasure to be read slowly and with your closest friends.”

,author of 
Tell Me a Story: The Life-Shaping Power of Our Stories 
 
“Dan Allender confronts us with the truth that we are storied people, thateach of us is a story, and that we are in fact writing our own stories. Withhumor and grace, Dan invites us not only to write our stories metaphori-cally but literally to begin to write our stories. He promises that in so doing we might just possibly find God, with whom we are coauthoring our sto-ries, and we might actually connect in vital and healing ways with ourselvesand with each other.”

and

“In
To Be Told,
Dan Allender creates an intimate, safe place where we feelfree to join in the discussion and dive, with a sort of careless courage, head-first into our own stories. I wept as I rediscovered the sacred and divine inmy own story, and began to find the connections between my own story threads, an understanding of my long-aching need to be heard, and theglimmers of a holy redemption.”

“Dan Allender calls us to recognize that our lives, which often seem ran-dom, have a brilliant, divine coherence. Under his expert tutelage we dis-cover how to discern God’s hand on our lives and how to tell the story toourselves and others.”
