A Hunger for the Holy

by Calvin Miller

Using the imagery of the psalms as a backdrop, author Calvin Miller explores our hunger for intimacy with our Holy God. Insisting that the pathway to God's holiness is through a journey into our own selves, Miller yet maintains that our end is not to know ourselves but to know Christ. Our hunger for the Holy leads us to a table for two in a quiet wilderness. Here, Miller says, we meet as "ardent lovers in the lonely desert of the human heart. There, he speaks as much as we do, and even when both of us say nothing, we are rapt in a welded oneness." In Miller's inimitable style, he graciously invites us to satisfy our hunger for the holiness of God as we meditate on the psalms and are challenged to know the God of the universe in a personal, intimate relationship.

Jesus Loves Me: Celebrating the Profound Truths of a Simple Hymn

by Calvin Miller

All Christians know this song. Many grew up singing it. Even now, the familiar notes are no doubt sounding in your mind: "Jesus loves me...this I know...for the Bible tells me so..." But have you ever stopped and actually thought about the meaning behind those words? No other song more succinctly and plainly states the basic elements of faith than this simple hymn. Within those three words and the rest of the song are found the basic tenets of Christianity. We learn this as a child. But as we grow older, and the cares of the world begin to invade our days, we slowly forget. We allow the complications of life to supersede the simple fact of God's enduring grace. In Jesus Loves me, author Calvin Miller seeks to remind believers of the foundational and abiding truths contained in this children's hymn by exploring it verse by verse, including the little-known second and third stanzas. Using his own moving illustrations, as well as quotes from Scripture, well-known writers, and historical figures, Miller lovingly paints a picture of a God who loves us first and will love us last, even in the midst of our everyday grind. Problems at home? Yes, but Jesus loves you. Problems at work? Perhaps, but Jesus loves you. Problems with money, children, love? Yes, yes, yes...but Jesus loves you. A book to share with others and give with joy, Jesus Loves Me will deepen your understanding of God's love and inspire you to a deeper faith. Book jacket.

Letters to a Young Pastor

by Calvin Miller

Calvin Miller has long been one of the most creative voices in the church. As a best-selling author and poet he has enabled believers to flourish. As a pastor and educator he has equipped countless thousands to know and serve God more fully. And he's got the battle scars to prove it. Having survived these tumultuous decades, Dr. Miller now shares his well-earned wisdom with the next generation of pastors--including you, or someone you know. Miller acknowledges much has changed over his years of ministry, as we've moved from switchboards to smartphones and from big-haired evangelists to cigar-smoking emergents. But two truths remain the same: God is love and people are broken. In this honest, engaging, and humorous collection of letters, he encourages you to fight the good fight, stay the course, and keep your eye on the Author and Finisher of the faith ... to serve well every Sunday so you'll never feel the urge to resign on Monday.
