We talked with "Blue Like Jazz" author Don Miller about the new movie based upon his book. We didn't have time to cover everything on air, so this is the full unabridged interview.

 

 

Blue Like Jazz the movie opens in theaters this weekend. Find a theater near you at bluelikejazzthemovie.com.

Blue Like Jazz changed my life! I can't wait to see the movie. Donald Miller's honesty gives hope. God is using him greatly to reach our generation. Support this movie!!!

I think you should re-examine whether or not this is something to advertise and talk about in a positive light. the film has all kinds of sexual gobledy-gook.

My Son Posted by Missy Pedersen on April 14, 2012 @ 09:17 AM

Dear Wally, I wanted to write you a note to tell you our God is still preforming Miracles!! I am a single mom with 2 teenage son's Westin 20 and Eatin 16 They both went to JCS school and Westin was the #1 wide receiver for the football team and he made first team for State of Fl. and was on the news all the time for his Athletic Abilities ....God had given him a real talent, but the unfortunate thing was he was introduced to drugs there and he started smoking pot everyday and drinking and hanging out with the wrong crowd. His senior year he had so much Turmoil in his life with the issues with his Father and myself that had been divorced 11 yrs ...so he decided he was not going to play football and turned down his Scholarship offers and opted to stay home and just smoke his life away. I ended up kicking him out of my house because of the terrible disrespect and I was so tired of him telling me to go f... myself and calling me a bitch ect ect so he went to live with his dad where there was no accountability whatsoever ....so about a year later he had some terrible issues with his dad so he begged me to take him back, which of course being a Mother i said absolutely but we are having strict rules and you cannot break them and so on ....well lol he broke every rule had so much Anger still , Wally I am telling you I had so many holes in my walls in the condo because of the anger of my 2 boys...Well let me tell you what happened. Westin got Eastin involved in smoking pot right under my nose and I did not even know it...I never did drugs in my life and when I would go into their room and smell something funny they would say I was CRAZY WOMAN and it was dirty socks..LOL
Well Wally about 5 months ago the PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT started dealing with Westin's heart and on his own free will he surrendered his life 100% to JESUS CHRIST, GOD TOOK AWAY HIS DESIRE FOR POT .PILLS AND ALCOHOL ...GOD CHANGED THIS BOYS LIFE LIKE YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE ...He is in 2 men's Bible Study groups takes his brother to youth group every Wed night ...He is Starting a Bible study for young College Men this summer for all the football players and anyone that is serous about Serving God,,And to top it off Wally God has called him to full time Ministry ...God willing he is going to attend Palm Beach Atlantic in the fall...Wally I listen to Way Fm every day...and before my boys got saved they would get into my car and change my station everytime and we would have huge fights over it...Not Now your radio station i the only one that we listen to now and we are all singing together Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God almighty, who was and is and is too come...PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME..
I just felt like I needed to share this with you and if there was someway to interview Westin it I feel like his testimony can reach so many kids today. Please send him a friend request on fb he is witnessing to everyone and preaching on Fb... Westin Pedersen Thanks Wally God Bless you and everyone at way FM

10 second topic Posted by Lois on April 17, 2012 @ 07:55 AM

I heard you 10 sec comment session this morning about the girl who was molested. Please let her know that she is not alone. So many of us have gone through this and God is still there. One of the verses for me was from Geneses when after everything Joseph went through he was able to say "What Satan meant for evil God will use for good." Find support for yourself now so you can be used for good in the future!

A better review Posted by Joshua on April 17, 2012 @ 10:10 AM

Here's a better review that concludes with how the movie ends up missing its own opportunities to state the gospel and ends with apologizing for Christianity instead of spreading the message, something not even the book did.
