Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Date: June 2009
Duration: 4 hours 12 minutes
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.
