Movie Recommendation: Blue Like Jazz
This Friday Blue Like Jazz comes to theaters. Dana and I saw the preview a couple of weekends ago. Don Miller wrote a book called Blue Like Jazz about ten years ago about his exploits coming to age as an evangelical Christian. The movie is a nice boy-meets-girl story that takes some interesting twists.
If you've read the book --and I recommend you do so-- you'll recognize the stories. Some things in the movie might seem out of place without the book. They go hand in hand.
Go to the website. Go to the movie. It isn't your Kirk Cameron version of Christianity. There's cursing, drinking, lesbians, and all other kinds of stuff in the real world. But it's just that: REAL. I was refreshed watching the movie take a middle-of-the-road approach to my faith.
