by Fr. Bill Miller
St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in the Heights is thrilled to welcome visiting author and priest, Fr. Bill Miller, for the release of his newest book The Beer Drinker's Guide to God: The Whole and Holy Truth About Lager, Loving, and Living. St. Andrew's is hosting a reading and book-signing with Fr. Miller on Wednesday, May 21st, doors opening at 6:30 pm. This FREE event is open to the public and will include refreshments, beer, courtesy of St. Arnold Brewery, and fellowship.
Fr. Bill believes that being upright does not mean you have to be uptight. In The Beer Drinker’s Guide to God, he brews up insightful, beautifully written reflections on how alcoholic beverages can reveal the true nature of God. He weaves together stories from his life in ministry, his travels in search of the world’s best Scotch, his attempts at brewing his own beer, and colorful evenings in his west Texas bar. He also reflects on the lessons he’s learned from roller derby, Playboy bunnies, Las Vegas, and his attempts to marry Miss Universe, all while writing about generosity, sacrifice, pilgrimage, and spiritual transformation. From the deeply touching to the laugh-out-loud funny, these stories ultimately open our minds to the glory of God and our mouths to some of his more delicious creations. The Beer Drinker’s Guide to God is a smart, earnest, hilarious book for those thirsty for God’s truth.
A Heights native, Fr. Bill currently resides in Hawaii where he is the Rector of St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church on Kauai. For those in doubt of his authority in the realm of spirits, he also owns Padre’s, a bar in Marfa, Texas. His previous writing endeavors include The Gospel According to Sam: Animal Stories for the Soul.
