"I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn't resolve. I used to not like God because God didn't resolve. But that was before any of this happened." ―Donald Miller In Donald Miller's early years, he was vaguely familiar with a distant God. But when he came to know Jesus Christ, he pursued the Christian life with great zeal. Within a few years he had a successful ministry that ultimately left him feeling empty, burned out, and, once again, far away from God. In this intimate, soul-searching account, Miller describes his remarkable journey back to a culturally relevant, infinitely loving God. For anyone wondering if the Christian faith is still relevant in a postmodern culture. For anyone thirsting for a genuine encounter with a God who is real. For anyone yearning for a renewed sense of passion in  life. Blue Like Jazz is a fresh and original perspective on life, love, and redemption.

So many times, the author came close...

5.0 Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality
Written by Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz reads like conversation between deep, soul-searching friends. He isn't afraid of ambling along. He isn't afraid to be completely transparent - which is why this book is equally profound and disturbing. The subtitle "Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spiritua...

2.0 Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality
There were a lot of good points in this book, but so much of it was a view of Christianity that was based on feeling. It seemed to portray how Christians have traditionally done things or believed, and then counter it with "I think" or "I felt". There was very little basing of his ideas on Scripture...

4.0 Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality
My relationship with this book has taken quite a journey. Upon my first read through, I was not impressed, and at times felt the desire to fling the book against the wall. The second time, I argued with it. And the third time, I finally realized all the things I was arguing with were things I had al...
