Will take part in a discussion tomorrow night over Blue Like Jazz by Don Miller. Did some research and found out he was influenced by Traveling Mercies by Anne LaMott. Not surprising. Both belong to a new genre of Christian writers who are not afraid to be genuine with their readers. I’m talking truly genuine–embarrassing stuff, incriminating stuff. Gone also are the easy answers and trite cliches of so many Christian “testimonies.”
I may not agree with everything these authors say, but I sure like the way they say it. May their tribe increase.
