Blue Like Jazz / Donald Miller
I really enjoyed reading Blue Like Jazz because Miller explores his own thoughts on spirituality in a very sincere and non-judgmental fashion. Through the backdrop of Post-Modernism, there is a certain combination of humor and reflection which I found to be very interesting. Plus, who can pass up reading a book with a chapter entitled “Redemption: The Sexy Carrots”!
“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.” In Donald Miller’s early years, he was vaguely familiar with a distant God. In this intimate, soul-searching account, Miller describes his remarkable journey to a culturally relevant, infinitely loving God.
