About the Author
Donald Miller is a writer, campus ministry leader, and speaker. He is the author of Prayer and the Art of Volkswagen Maintenance, a road-trip narrative about a spiritual quest. His writing has appeared in periodicals such as New Man Magazine, Youthwalk, Believe Magazine, and Faith M.D. Miller is active in a small, but resilient and growing campus ministry at Reed College, which has the distinction of being ranked one of the most intellectual colleges and one of the most godless colleges in the country.
Donald Miller, who recently rose to national fame after giving a closing prayer at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, shows what many believe are the strengths and weaknesses of the "emerging church" movement. While his heart seems pointed in the right direction, his liberal influences bend the practice of his faith back toward man and away from God, raising more questions than he answers. Scott Brick reads with much snark, illustrating the cynical points wittily but giving the heartfelt elements too much sarcastic flair, creating an uneven read. His laid-back reading style mirrors the slacker style of the writer but ultimately falls flat in his attempts to convey the weight that Miller feels his deeper ideas have.

I truly liked the was Donald Miller phrased things in his book. I did not always agree with him (there is not one I agree with 100% of the time) but he always made me think and ponder. Bravo!
"Blue Like Jazz" reminded me of "The Velvet Elvis" which is also an interesting book along similar lines.
Thanks for reading my review.
I am thankful that there are Churches in our country that are getting back to looking at and behaving how Jesus was, dropping the picket signs, loving everybody, and letting the Holy Spirit bring about changes.
Miller's book is conversational style--like a court recorder listened in and documented Miller sharing with a friend in his living room, which made it an easy read. Miller discusses deep subjects with this easy-to-grasp sharing; he makes profound truth relevant in his everyday-share talk. I loved the book and would recommend it to anyone, whether skeptic or truth seeker.
