Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spiritualityby Donald Miller
Synopses & Reviews
Donald Miller's fresh and original voice may change the way Christians view the "status quo" faith and build a bridge to seekers who believe that organized religion doesn't meet their spiritual needs.
"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. 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.
"Miller is enjoyably clever, and his story is telling and beautiful, even poignant....the subtitle — 'Non-Religious' thoughts about 'Christian Spirituality' — indicates Miller's distrust of the institutional church and his desire to appeal to those experimenting with other flavors of spirituality." Publishers Weekly
Miller's fresh and original voice may change the way Christians view the status quo of faith and build a bridge to seekers who believe that organized religion doesn't meet their needs.
