Night Driving tells the story of a pastor and seminary professor whose moral failures destroyed his marriage and career, left his life in ruins, and sent him spiraling into a decade-long struggle against God. Forced to fight the demons of his past in the cab of the semi-truck he drove at night through the Texas oil fields, Chad Bird slowly began to limp toward grace and healing.
Drawing on his expertise as an Old Testament scholar, Bird weaves together his own story, the biblical story, and the stories of fellow prodigals as he peels back the layers of denial, anger, addiction, and grief to help readers come face-to-face both with their own identities and with the God who alone can heal them.

author of The Life Youve Always Wanted
"It is not clear to me why God meets us uniquely in pain. It is only clear that he does. In Night DrivingChad Bird gives us an unsparing look at the desperate and unpretty human need for God through the lens of his own journey. We are shepherds of darkness and stewards of scars. If youre having problems finding God in your life, you may find him here."
author of Because He Loves Me
"All too infrequently, into our sweet and tidy churchiness, comes a book of such amazing transparency, hope, precision, beauty, and glorious messiness that it shakes us from our lethargic self-justification. . . . Chads book is just such a gem."
cohost of the White Horse Inn radio show
"Most tell-all books have a self-atonement-by-confession scent, but not this one. Any and all selfparticularly his ownthe author shows is no more than idolatry. But the triune God specializes in giving life to crushed, despised, broken, dead peopleme, you. And always through his incarnate, crucified Son. All for you, for me, for allincluding the author."
from the foreword
"In this little book, Chad has a singular purpose. He wants us to get one thing straight. . . . He wants there to be no mistaking that, even in the darkest of times, we are not our own but belong to another, to one who has our best interests at heart and will never let us go."
