I happened upon a new author the other day and discovered that not only do I really enjoy his books but I also really like his blog. The author’s name is Donald Miller; he wrote Blue Like Jazz which sold over a million copies. After the first few chapters of trying to figure out what kind of a book it was, I got really hooked. It’s quirky and funny and heart warming all in one. What I love about Blue Like Jazz is how honest Miller is about Christianity. He writes things in the book that I have often felt, and I was glad he was brave enough to say it out loud.
Recently Miller wrote A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. I ordered it on amazon the other day and it just arrived last week. I let it sit on my desk for a few days, but the book was really calling to me so I’ve started reading it this morning. The first page gave me goosebumps. I’m really looking forward to reading more.
