Jack Millers warm and personal letters are an extension of the man himselfa spiritual father to so many. Each letter caused me to search my heart and pointed me to Jesus as Dr. Miller applied the gospel of grace to soul struggles that are common to all of us. The wisdom contained in this volume is a gift to Christians everywhere.
This is a book that will profoundly touch your life. It is wise, loving, and biblical. It reflects the heart of a man God used in such a wonderful way in so many lives, and in mine. What a gift to the church!
