CT Interviews Donald Miller(Filed under: Interviews)
Donald Miller, author of Blue Like Jazz and the most recent Through Painted Deserts (which is actually a rewrite of 2000's Prayer and the Art of Volkswagen Maintenance), talks with CT editor Stan Guthrie. It's actually a really short interview, but it starts to get into questions of absolute truth. It actually ends so abruptly you wonder what happened:
Miller: It wasn't until I understood that the dynamic of our faith is relational rather than logical that I started maturing in my faith.
Guthrie: Can't you bring them together?
Miller: Well, certainly you can.
Guthrie: "Rather than" is pretty stark.
Miller: It is very stark. But it's the language of our culture.
Guthrie: So you're overstating your case.
Miller: I'm overstating my case, because I don't feel like anybody will listen if I don't.

Yeah, it is over just like that. BAM. It almost leaves you with the impression that he walked out of the room. Hmmmm... interesting.
