Please Welcome Scot Miller

Please Welcome Scot Miller January 25, 2012

I’m taking a 6-day digital sabbath, my first in a long time. I’m spending a long weekend with Courtney and some friends, and I’m bringing nothing with me but books. I couldn’t be more excited.

I’ve got a few posts set up for my absence. But mainly I’m handing the reigns over to Scot Miller. I met Scot in early 2010 at an event in Fort Worth, Texas, and he has been one of the most faithful — and most thoughtful — commenters on this blog in the past year. If you’ve read the comments, you’ve read Scot.

Here’s a bit about him. I ask you to welcome him heartily and engage with what he writes. And I’ll see you all next week.

Scot Miller

Scot Miller grew up in Lakewood, CO, and moved to Abilene, TX in 1977 to attend Hardin-Simmons University. After graduating in 1981 with a B.A. in Bible and English, he earned his M.Div. from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1984. (He lived in the same dorm with Al Mohler before Al got married). He then did graduate work in the philosophy of religion at Boston University, Boston College, and Harvard Divinity School. He was ordained as a Southern Baptist minister in Cambridge, MA in 1985.

While in Boston, he taught as an adjunct lecturer at Tufts University and at Merrimack College. Hereturned to Hardin-Simmons in the fall of 1990 as Instructor of Philosophy and Head of the PhilosophyDepartment.

Given his philosophical, theological, and academic background, it was only natural for him to become the Office Manager in his wife’s pediatric clinic when she went into private practice in October 2004.

  • Love this guy’s comments (and his beard). Thumbs up.

  • Travis Ingels

    Yay a fellow HSU graduate. To bad I never got to take any classes with him while he was at HSU. Looking forward to the blog!

  • Tom Schwolert

    This is great. I really appreciated his comments the other day on “The Silence of Jesus(on Homosexuality)”. Very well thought out and articulated.

  • Basil

    Ditto for what Tom said!! Very articulate!

  • Charles

    Fantastic! Welcome Brother!

  • Courtney

    Hey, I’m from Lakewood too originally! Will enjoy your posts I’m sure!

  • Welcome, Scot!

  • Steve, IC

    Love the story — background — the SBTS story – same place I started. I have decided they would not let me in today — SBTS doesn’t even acknowledge I am an alum or send requests for donor monies. I sense Scot may be of the same ilk as me — which, given the Marcan text for this Sunday makes him an authority in whom I can be amazed – plus married well. (I am an Episcopal priest now)

    @Travis Ingels – you didn’t miss much when it came to Professor Miller’s teaching at Hardin-Simmons. His classes and instruction were about as useful as a venereal disease.
