There is a breadth and depth to life that most never experience. There is a joy in life that many never experience. In The Wider Life J. R. Miller walks us down a path that leads to a better life, a life rich and full, a life beyond our imagination."We do not realize half our possibilities. We do not more than begin to possess our inheritance. Our hills are full of gold and we only scratch the sand and the shallow soil on the surface. We live in little bungalows in the valley when there are splendid palaces waiting for us on the hilltops. Shall we not push out our tent pins and get more room to live in?"I am sick of four walls and a ceiling, I have need of the sky."James Russell Miller was a popular Christian author, Editorial Superintendent of the Presbyterian Board of Publication, and pastor of several churches in Pennsylvania and Illinois. He was the General field Agent for the United States Christian Commission, an organization established by the Young Men's Christian Association after the First Battle of Bull Run. Miller authored nearly 100 books and articles.
