Publisher's Summary

"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.

Not what you think....

This is one man's story. Maybe it's not even a story per se. It's his opinion, outlook, philosophy and journey. It's not going to read like a novel and in my opinion I think it works better this way. All in all, I really enjoyed this book, however reading instead of listening was far more rewarding on this particular book. You'll need to throw away some of your pre-conceived notions and set aside legalistic thinking...but that's the point. Recommended either way, but loved the paperback.

This book hits the mark for anyone looking to have a real relationship with Jesus. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to reconcile what you have been taught in the church, and the real world application of Jesus's love for mankind.

Interesting but not earth shattering

Would you try another book written by Donald Miller or narrated by Scott Brick?

Id read another Donald Miller book but I would NEVER listen to one narrated by Scott Brick again, I found him monotone, irritating and really slow.

If you’ve listened to books by Donald Miller before, how does this one compare?

Its not quite as good.

How could the performance have been better?

More animated, quicker in pace, by someone else.

Do you think Blue Like Jazz needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Book brought to life with excellent narration!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Donald Miller delivers a brilliant book that will speak to many millennial christians as they struggle to reconcile the church, the world, and Jesus.

What other book might you compare Blue Like Jazz to, and why?

Bob Goff's 'Love Does'. There is a real earnestness to the writing style in both books; one that makes you feel like you know the author well enough to grab a beer and enjoy an evening of open conversation.

Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favourite?

Scott Brick did a thoroughly excellent job of mirroring Miller's dry humour. The nuances of his delivery were well appreciated and saw me openly guffaw on several occasions. Seeing that Miller's latest book 'Scary Close' was narrated by a different performer was a little heart-wrenching, but I was happy to see 'Searching For God Knows What' is narrated by Brick as well. I will be downloading it post haste.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Meet the man who understands you.

Any additional comments?

I really *really* like Scott Brick's narration. I feel like if my life were to have a narrator, it would be him.
