  • Grace Notes

    I'm currently reading "A Million Miles in a Thousand Years" by Don Miller.

    He wrote "Blue Like Jazz," which continues to be the best Christian book I've ever read, although not for its literary merit. The book is random and messy, but Miller's thoughts are raw and profound.

    His new book begins with a movie producer wanting to turn "Blue Like Jazz" into a movie, but he tells Miller that the book as is wouldn't make a compelling or interesting movie because his real life is boring.
