For the record, I am NOT Kevin A. Miller

THIS is Kevin A. Miller. And if you’re like me, you probably had to do a double take to make sure it wasn’t Tony Robbins. This is the first time I’ve had to make this distinction, due to the critique Kevin wrote of Brian McLaren, Rob Bell and Donald Miller. However, it makes me chuckle [Read More...]

A momentary lapse of reason?

I’ve been following with great interest Sam Harris’s extended exchanges with his critics. First it was Daniel Dennet, who wrote a lengthy and scathing critique of Harris’s book Free Will, calling it a “veritable museum of mistakes.” I am grateful to Harris for saying, so boldly and clearly, what less outgoing scientists are┬áthinking but keeping [Read More...]

Walter Wink’s memoir “Just Jesus” is definitely worth the read

I just finished reading the late Walter Wink’s recently published memoir Just Jesus: My Struggle to Become Human. I highly recommend you read it whether or not you’ve read his other work (which I highly recommend you read, especially Engaging the Powers). Here’s a nugget from Just Jesus to whet your appetite: Where the Bible [Read More...]

My new documentary is now officially available

It’s called The Chicken Manure Incident, and you can rent it for $3 or own it for $5. Due to recent events in Abbotsford, BC, where the documentary takes place, I had made an earlier cut available. This new version features better audio and new graphics. I’ve already screened the film in Abbotsford and Edmonton [Read More...]

Also presenting will be TWU philosophy professor Myron Penner, whose paper is called “How to Be a Universalist.” The event kicks off at 7pm and will wrap around 9. Q&A to follow [Read More...]

52-minute version of “Hellbound?” now available

Good things come in small packages, or in this case, shorter packages. (Yikes, there’s no way to escape the innuendo, is there?) At any rate, we cut an abridged version of Hellbound? for CBC’s Documentary Channel, so I thought I’d also make it available online for those with short attention spans, don’t have a lot [Read More...]

Bragging on my big sister

Here is a video of her conducting the Victoria Symphony Orchestra, where she serves as music director. [Read more...]

The first review of my new documentary is in — and it’s a doozy

A brief excerpt from Mike Archer’s piece blistering piece at Abbotsford Today: Before Mayor Banman allows another Abbotsford taxpayer dollar to be given to the Calgary Flames he should buy every household in Abbotsford a copy of The Chicken Manure Incident. At $5 a copy it would be a bargain and it would change this [Read More...]

Can we be scientific about theology?

I say, “Yes!” But if we are going to be scientific about theology, it seems to me we need to proceed like scientists, with as few assumptions about the data under observation as possible, i.e. that the Spirit is somehow guiding us. Rather than proceed from that assumption, I would rather wait and see if [Read More...]

The NSA: From “No Such Agency” to “New Snowden Age”

In early 2001, I was doing research for a novel about a radio operator on a Trident nuclear submarine who receives a mysterious signal from what appears to be an extra-terrestrial source and subsequently finds himself at the center of an international and [possibly] interplanetary crisis. As part of my research, I spent time studying [Read More...]
