About Joel J. Miller

I’m a writer and editor with more than fifteen years experience in the publishing business, including serving as a vice president and publisher for Thomas Nelson, an imprint of HarperCollins.

I’ve authored four books, including Lifted by Angels, a look at angels through the eyes of the early church; The Revolutionary Paul Revere; and Size Matters, portions of which were adapted as a cover story for Reason magazine. Lifted by Angels has also been published in Spanish and Polish.

I’m currently working on a new book about why Christians need the church—especially if they think they don’t.

Some of the publications that have featured my articles and essays include RealClearReligion, The American Spectator, National Review Online,, and Donald Miller’s popular Storyline blog. Additionally, I have previously blogged for Patheos; you can find a substantial archive of my posts there.
