Father Bill Miller appreciates both spirits and the Holy Spirit. As an Episcopal priest and the owner of Padre's bar in Marfa, Texas, he understands that spiritual lessons can be drawn from everyday living as well as the finer things in life-a smoky Scotch, a robust Zinfandel, PBR in a can.

Father 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 Texan 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Bill Miller gives religion a good name. His book had me laughing out loud in parts and highlighting other sections for later reference. Buy this book, read it, then toast to spiritual transformation." -- Vince Poscente, New York Times bestselling author, The Age of Speed
"The well-schooled theologian or the purveyor of spirits will both savor The Beer Drinker's Guide to God ." -- The Rt. Rev. C. Andrew Doyle, Author of Unabashedly Episcopalian
"In The Beer Drinker's Guide to God, Father Bill Miller writes with eloquence and great humor-two qualities missing in much of Christian writing today-to remind us that Christianity is a religion of joy, celebration, and love. Father Miller's sermons are crafted like parables, and so is this wonderful, joyous, profound, inspiring, wise, and deeply funny book, which strikes the perfect note and doesn't miss a beat." -- William Broyles, screenwriter on the films Cast Away, Apollo 13, and Polar Express
