Douglas B. Miller (Ph.D., Princeton Theological Seminary) is Professor of Biblical and Religious Studies at Tabor College. He is the author of several books, including Ecclesiastes in the Believers Church Bible Commentary series.
Getting A Life will be an excellent resource for high school and post-secondary students who are wrestling with future life directions. It not only addresses questions of vocation and career but, more importantly, identity and character, recognizing that one’s primary commitments precede any decisions about profession. The book’s tone is invitational as it seeks to show how a Christian world view can help us make life-giving choices in a sometimes bewildering postmodern world.

If you cannot take a trip to Mt. Horeb to hear the still small voice and God’s question “What are you doing here?” this book is the next-best word. Much more than a textbook, this text can serve as a life-guide to be used with the Bible. Wise, gentle, sensitive, smart.
Professor of Old Testament and Preaching
Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary
On their journey through this book, readers are invited to reflect on matters of self-identity and faith formation. With examples from pop culture, discussions of biblical texts, and suggested reflection questions, this book can be a helpful resource for use at colleges and universities where there is a commitment to help students discern their calling as followers of Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah of God.
