April Book of the Month: Blue Like Jazz

April 3, 2012

It’s time to once again break from the tradition of recommending personal development reading and dig into a slightly different genre. In Blue Like Jazz, Don Miller offers us a thought provoking narrative of his personal spiritual journey. Written as a series of short essays on vaguely theological topics (faith, grace, belief, confession, church), and disguised theological topics (magic, romance, shifts, money). Miller is enjoyably clever, and his story is telling and beautiful, even poignant. The title is meant to be evocative. His subtitle, “Non-Religious” thoughts about “Christian Spirituality” indicates Miller’s distrust of the traditional institutional church and his desire to appeal to those experimenting with other flavors of spirituality.

Enjoy!
