About the Author:

Dr. Calvin Miller, professor of preaching and pastoral studies at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, received his D. M. from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and has served on the editorial boards of such publications as Leadership Magazine and Preaching Magazine. An accomplished author of more than forty books -- including the popular Singer trilogy, The Unchained Soul, and The Book of Jesus -- Calvin Miller brings awe-inspiring artistry to the craft of writing.

From Booklist:

The latest sibling of Bill Bennett's Book of Virtues (1993) is one of the best and most focused. Like Bennett's big hit, it is a hefty compilation of notably high-quality writing whose thrust is, as Bennett's title suggests, virtuous. Editor Miller, a Baptist clergyman, says his anthology is intended to celebrate the greatness of Jesus Christ according to the Christian understanding of him. Miller draws from the works of well more than 100 writers, from the early Christian fathers to medieval and Renaissance voices, such as St. Francis and Shakespeare, down to moderns, who, besides Christian writers, include Ernest Hemingway, of all people. Of course, current evangelical stars Charles Colson and Max Lucado appear (though not controversial ones, such as Pat Robertson and James Dobson), and there are plenty of poems and hymn verses. The selections are arrayed in 10 topical sections, from "Jesus, Who He Was," through parts concentrating on his life and teachings, to the concluding readings on "Jesus, His Second Coming." A reverent job well done. Ray Olson
