"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.

Good story telling.

Not for everyone. Author has been accused of being “works based”.

Yes, you can have humor and great insight in one book!

This book was a rare treat. I read the reviews first, but I wasn’t really sure what to expect until I actually received it, and I was pleasantly surprised. His humor is excellent, and the way he pokes fun at himself will make you smile quite a bit. The title makes it sound that he has in some way steered clear of religious discussion, but that’s not really the case. I’m a Christian, so that doesn’t bother me in the least, but I just throw that out there in case you are not and might resent one man’s reflection on his faith and what it looks like in action.

Great read

This is like taking a step into a man’s mind on Christian spirituality. It is good for those who became believers at a young age, but it is also good for those who haven’t ever had an experience with God before. Miller starts at zero and builds his way up from there. I only give 4 out of five stars because Miller’s writing is very simple. This is a good book for those who enjoy to see simplicity in thought and word. You don’t get lost in deep concepts or have to trudge through heavy words. The concepts are deep, yes. But Miller explains in a way that is simple enough for anyone to understand.

Great book

His reluctance to religion is what makes this book a page turner. I love his exploration into his own faith and the conclusions he comes to are very similar to my own ideology. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Changed my way of thinking

This book opened my eyes to how Christians are viewed by other-than-Christian people groups. It gave me insight to their thought processes in relation to how they have been treated by us. It further showed how little in the world is black and white but mostly gray. It caused me to look closer at Jesus and how He related to all people where they were emotionally, spiritually, physically. He loved them the way they were (just as He loved me) and caused change through relationship with Him instead of through guilt (that the Christian organization, GENERALLY speaking, has come to force on them).

Excellent

This book is so real. It tells a true story of a young man whom God has chosen to let us into his heart of hearts as the Lord grows him into learning what being loved and giving love is all about. I really enjoyed theconversational manner in which this book was written. I chose 5 stars and will recommend this book to my family and friends.

This took me through a wave of emotions, where I hated the author’s perspective one page, then was completely on the same page the next. I think this speaks to how he shares the story of his faith walk over time, and how difficult certain seasons can be in life and faith.

Love it. The light that is shed on so …

Wow. I did not expect the humor. Wow. Love it. The light that is shed on so many notions around Jesus and religion is both wise and relatable.

A friend recommended this book several years ago, and I almost forgot about it. Thankfully, when it was offered in E-book form, I remembered.
