Blue Like Jazz

"Blue Like Jazz" by Donald Miller

This book is a look at the Christian faith through every day circumstances and how the author came upon his own conversion. I really appreciated the honesty and realism of this author. It was refreshing to hear Christianity defined and explained through everyday happenings and not lots of "holy" words. "I mean to be in a relationship with God is to be loved purely and furiously. And a person who thinks himself unlovable cannot be in a relationship with God because he can't accept who God is; a Being that is love. We learn that we are lovable or unlovable from other people. That is why God tells us so many times to love each other." It is hard to accept a God who IS love if we don't love ourselves and He created us! I have a lot of work to do in this area, do you? Loving people for who God made them to be, seeing God in them and not judging them. Good book for a fresh perspective on the things of God.
