Blue Like Jazz

Is annoying but a great read and I've just finished it. Donald Miller writes like Douglas Coupland and a bit like Benny Walter and I can't help but imagine him living in one of those grotty early-Crossroads sharehouses.

There's something a little bit inauthentic about someone deliberately adopting a laid-back and airy tone when they actually do have strong tastes and opinions.

There's something really fantastic about a Christian book written by someone who is a very gifted writer. Fresh descriptions and interesting sentences are all over the place; new expressions of old ideas.

It did really motivate me to want to go out and 'do mission' too.
