Blue Like Jazz


"My most recent faith struggle is not one of intellect. I don't really do that anymore. Sooner or later you just figure out there are some guys who don't believe in God and they can prove He doesn't exist, and some other guys who do believe in God and they can prove He does exist, and the argument stopped being about God a long time ago and now it's about who is smarter, and honestly I don't care." - Donald Miller

I found Blue Like Jazz to be a very refreshing read. Miller's writing style is personable and authentic. He isn't on a high rock preaching his belief's to those of us struggling through life. He writes from a vantage point of being open, genuine, and vunerable.

The majority of the book details his experiences at Reed College (a liberal arts school) in Portland, Oregon where Miller discovered how to interact and exhibit love to those around him who had curiousities about the Christian faith.

I keep meaning to steal Sarah's copy and read it. Got too many books in the lineup as it is!

I truly enjoyed this book. I am preparing to read it again soon (reading another right now). He made some very good points that struck me and I am anxious to read it again to see what I may have missed. (I'm know for reading books two or three times!)

by the way....I got to your blog from the comment section on Harley Ghost. Wayne is a great man and I will be supporting him this Sunday!

God Bless!
