Endorsements

“A pleasure to read: warm, encouraging, inspiring and uplifting.” - Sally Lloyd Jones, author of The Jesus Storybook Bible

"We will never learn to find God in the ordinariness of life until we are taught by someone who has. Mike Milton has been finding God in the ordinary from his first childhood day of poverty in Louisiana. With a pastors heart, he obviously longs for us to find Him as well." - Michael Card

“Who says that 'theology' is dull and too other worldly? They must not be referring to this book... each pithy vignette in the most down to earth manner teaches deep theology that will bless your heart... as he writes about grief, trials, joys, and all other aspects of life and reality. Amidst your smiles, memories of home, and bygone days, you will see the truth in each reading.” - Dr. Charles Dunahoo

“Somehow Michael Milton has managed to pack the weight of glory into the nutshell of everyday life. The ‘big things’ of eschatology and theology and doxology and cosmology, bare their souls before us in the ‘small things’ that we can touch and smell and remember so well. A warm-hearted credit to the reformed tradition!” - John Guest

Editorial Reviews

A pleasure to read: warm, encouraging, inspiring and uplifting.
Who says that theology is dull and too other worldly? They must not be referring to this book. Mike Milton tells you about himself, God, and what life is all about. Whether it is Aunt Eve’s mincemeat pies or her bacon biscuits, or actress Irene Dunn or grandma’s apron or cataract surgery or sitting up all night with his dying dog or the great donut fraud, each pithy vignette in the most down to earth manner teaches deep theology that will bless your heart. What a good source of practically applied theology as he writes about grief, trials, joys, and all other aspects of life and reality. Amidst your smiles, memories of home, and bygone days, you will see the truth in each reading.
We will never learn to find God in the ordinariness of life until we are taught by someone who has. Mike Milton has been finding God in the ordinary from his first childhood day of poverty in Louisiana. And he has found Him (or been found by Him) in everything from diet doughnuts to drowning chickens, from cinnamon rolls to Old Spice, from hollyhocks to hurricanes. With a pastors heart, he obviously longs for us to find Him as well.
Somehow Michael Milton has managed to pack the weight of glory into the nutshell of everyday life. The ‘big things’ of eschatology and theology and doxology and cosmology, bare their souls before us in the ‘small things’ that we can touch and smell and remember so well. A warm-hearted credit to the reformed tradition!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Michael A. Milton
Located in: Matthews, NC
Submitted: March 03, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a PCA pastor, serving as president of Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, NC and also the James M. Baird, Jr. Professor of Pastoral Theology. I live in Matthews, outside of Charlotte, with my wife and son.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  This book is a compilation of letters written in pastoral love to my congregation and our students, helping them to stop and look and listen for the Lord in their lives. It is really a book about applied theology. I wanted Christians to be awakened to the reality of the presence and power of the risen Christ.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I pray the readers gain hope in their lives, to find God in the midst of the common, the everyday, and to begin to see living the Christian life as an adventure.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I was impacted by doing the theological reflection myself, by discovering the Christ who is always there is the common things of my own life. I grew in love of the Savior through writing these letters.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  There are many, of course. I do count Auden, Eugene Peterson, Craig Barnes, Michael Card, Robert L. Reymond, John Guest, CS Lewis, Simon Kistemaker, John Calvin Henry Luke Orombi, and the English Puritans as great influencers on my writing and ministry.
