Blue Like Jazz – Free Chapter

0785263705.jpgI just finished Blue Like Jazz written by Donald Miller. There’s a summary of Blue Like Jazz on my Nightstand page and a link if you want to pick it up at Biblio.

Miller has become one of my favorite authors and I especially enjoy his refreshing take on life and Christianity. It’s different than anything I’ve read in a very long time. I’ll write some more about this book in the coming weeks. Until then, click the link below if you’d like to read Chapter 1 of Blue Like Jazz:

    This is the type of Christianity I can relate to. It is the only kind that means anything ~ this walk with God *must* make sense on a day to day basis ~ so much of what we hear in church doesn’t translate into real life ~ most christians need to know what it looks like in real life.

    I like it.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I’m going to track down the book.

    Love you guys! :o)

    I found the book to be very self-serving. Miller comes across as look-at-what-a-cool-guy-I-am. He has some good insights on occasion, but I got a little fed up with his trite answers and disdain for anything vaguely traditional. I couldn’t finish the book.
