James Russell Miller (1840-1912) was regarded for his devotional writing in his era. His more than 60 volumes sold into the millions of copies and were translated into numerous languages throughout the world. This biography by his closest friend, John Faris, tells the story of his life in a way that is both captivating and encouraging. Professor W. Brenton Greene of Princeton Theological Seminary, after 25 years of intimate association with Miller, said reverently: "If I dared let any man embody my idea of our Lord, I should find myself unconsciously turning to Dr. Miller for such embodiment. We can try to follow him only afar off, but it is one of God's best gifts to us that we have been given such an example of Christlikeness."
