Rethinking Blue Like Jazz?

I have not read the book or seen the movie and have no intention to do so, but the constant buzz I’ve seen about Blue Like Jazz made me curious. Dr. Mark Coppenger, who was my philosophy professor my first year at Southern gave a review of Blue Like Jazz several years ago at Southern. In it he calls Donald Miller (the author) Schleiermacher with a sol patch (Schleiermacher is widely regarded as the father of modern theological liberalism). Miller’s vision of Christianity, Coppenger argues is no different than the liberalism that infested Southern for years (Coppenger would know-he wears the scars of the battles). So if you’ve read the book or are planning to see the movie, give this critique a listen and careful consideration.
