"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." ?Donald Miller

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.

For anyone wondering if the Christian faith is still relevant in a postmodern 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.

This book is about Don's spiritual journey, filled with all the bumps and bruises, doubts and revelations along the way. It's an entertaining read.

The author is simply sharing his opinion about religion. It's not earth-shattering. The value in this book is simply to get a glimpse into another person's view. It didn't do anything for me personally or spiritually.

Very Christian, not very interesting about a faith journey, unless that is what you are going through.
