KNOWING GOD’S WILL
Paul Miller | 1988
Have you ever been frustrated with trying to figure out if you have heard from God concerning his plan for your life? Have you ever found yourself trying to discover if you have actually heard from God or not? This book has been written with you in mind.
Discover the various ways that God does speak to us—and they are many (though our spirits, through our very human reasoning, and even through our creativity)—all explored in this book. Then ask yourself if you have been hearing from God all along and not recognized it.
THE RELUCTANT EVANGELIST
Paul Miller | 1990
The Bible tells us to “go and be my witnesses.” How do we do that in our ordinary lives? This book has numerous personal anecdotes, as the author, to his own astonishment, ends up for seven years as an “open-air preacher” on the streets of London, with all the colorful cast of characters such a stage provides. The book examines “friendship evangelism,” “how to do a miracle in four easy steps,” and a host of other learning points half-mastered on the journey. Be inspired, be encouraged, read the book.
INTO THE ARENA
Paul Miller | 1992
“Don’t talk about politics and religion in polite circles,” is advice oft given. This book ignores all that and talks about them both at once! What is the relationship between politics and religion?
This book examines this question via the different models of engagement that have been tried down through history, weighing the strengths and weaknesses of each. Two convictions underlie this book: first, that the public arena would be a poorer place without giving room to God’s voice and the voice of the religious; second, that the Bible actually has principles of political engagement to guide our path on how to use this religious voice constructively—if only we would dig into them. This book attempts to do just that.
EVANGELICAL MISSION IN CO-OPERATION WITH CATHOLICS
Paul Miller | 2013
Okay, the other books listed above are practical and immediately applicable. This book is a weighty tome that the aspiring missiologist will enjoy unpacking. It is not for the faint of heart!
For 500 years, Evangelicalism (with its Protestant forefathers) and Catholicism have been in different camps, mostly as enemies. But things are changing today. This book, a revision of my PhD studies, examines this changing relationship, especially by focusing on two case studies from Austria and France. In both we follow two Evangelical missionaries who begin their journeys with a fixed and unquestioning anti-Catholic animosity. But both are surprised—shocked even—to discover that they have far more in common with their former Catholic enemies than they supposed. And what they have in common is not just a shared ethical core or general concepts about God, but shared convictions concerning Evangelical core beliefs on how to be “saved”—“salvation by grace through faith.”
This book details their struggles and their changes. It then challenges their conclusions by allowing three theologians—one English Anglican, one French Evangelical, and one English Catholic—to interact with and critique them. Somewhat academic at points, it is yet a book
