“I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn’t resolve. But sometimes you have to watch somebody love something before you can love it yourself...I used to not like God because God didn’t resolve. But that was before any of this happened.” —Donald Miller

BLUE LIKE JAZZ

“Don Miller writes like a good improv solo—smooth, sweet, surprising, uplifting, and full of soul and fury and joy. When I finished the last page, I felt warmed, full of hope, and confident that this great book will echo with beauty in many, many lives just as it is doing in mine.” —Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christian

“It’s hard to find people who write about God from a position of commitment but still sound as if they’re being human and honest....Donald Miller is such a person.” —John Ortberg

“Don Miller has achieved what every Christian writer toils and types for: spiritual relevancy. He has completely revealed himself in his latest effort. Laced with off-guard humor, biting insights, and to-the-point summaries, Blue Like Jazz is a thought-provoking journey toward a God who is not only real but reachable.” —David Allen, HM Magazine

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.

Donald Miller is a speaker, founder of The Mentoring Project, and author of A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, Blue Like Jazz, Searching for God Knows What, Through Painted Deserts, and Father Fiction.

From AudioFile:

Donald Miller, who recently rose to national fame after giving a closing prayer at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, shows what many believe are the strengths and weaknesses of the "emerging church" movement. While his heart seems pointed in the right direction, his liberal influences bend the practice of his faith back toward man and away from God, raising more questions than he answers. Scott Brick reads with much snark, illustrating the cynical points wittily but giving the heartfelt elements too much sarcastic flair, creating an uneven read. His laid-back reading style mirrors the slacker style of the writer but ultimately falls flat in his attempts to convey the weight that Miller feels his deeper ideas have. S.M.M. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
