Publisher's Summary

"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 For anyone wondering if the Christian faith is still relevant in a post-modern 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.

What the Critics Say

"Miller...is a young writer, speaker, and campus ministry leader. An earnest evangelical who nearly lost his faith, he went on a spiritual journey, found some progressive politics, and most importantly, discovered Jesus' relevance for everyday life....Miller is enjoyably clever, and his story is telling and beautiful, even poignant. (The story of the reverse confession booth is worth the price of the book.) The title is meant to be evocative, and 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)

Searching for people like me

I have to laugh, here in this book is the solidification of my thoughts, views, and wonders. I am not alone. How do we follow a man and not a church? Here in this book are the definitions of my Faith in Christ and the Bible. Thank you Don! Of this praise I must detract one thing however....ABRIDGED!!????? Why oh why???

Great book, where is unabridged

I've read the book and I really enjoyed listening to it. While I may not agree with everything he states, I think he makes some excellent points about what it really means to follow Jesus. I really recommend this for anyone who calls themselves a Christian, or for anyone who is interested in what it means to follow Jesus and is really turned off by the image that is often projected by those who claim to follow Him.

I knocked it down to 4 stars because it's abridged.
