This month P&R Publishing will release Small Things, Big Things: Inspiring Stories of God’s Everyday Grace. The stories are varied. But each story is really a message in itself that seeks to tug at your heart, tap on your head, and awaken you to the possibility that God is in it all. Each message is aimed to lead you to see deeper, to look under the presenting issues of life to discover the glory of God’s grace at work in your midst, which was always there. The chapters are really letters that I wrote to my beloved congregation and to our cherished seminary community. My prayer is that this book helps you locate God amidst the often cluttered realities of life, which are really overflowing with spiritual possibilities. At least, I think, they are signposts to another world; and not just the world beyond, but the world here, a world that could be. I hope that those of you who choose to purchase this book will know of my profound honor and appreciation that you would even take the time to read. But as you do, I ask God now, by His Spirit and because of His promises, that He will bless this book to His honor and glory and to your good. I pray that Christ will be glorified, souls saved, lives transformed and that the Lord will use this, in His redemptive plan, to place many safe in the arms of Jesus when He comes again.
And now may the reality of the risen Christ, who came to disciples locked down on that first evening of His resurrection, move through the locked doors of our lives that we too may hear Him say to us, “Peace be unto you.”
P&R has produced a promotional video for this book which may be found here on this YouTube site.
One may also view an interview with yours truly on the book at this location.
Some Early Reviews:
“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
