Dear Calvin Miller,

I hope it's okay to call you Calvin. Rev. Miller is a bit formal. You don't know me, but I know you, and you have had something to do with my life.

I just finished reading your "Letters to Heaven: Reaching Beyond the Great Divide." I have to admit, with a subtitle like that, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. But since over the years I read "The Singer Trilogy," "Letters to a Young Pastor," the "Philippian Fragment" and quite a few others of your books, I figured that this book would be something other than what the subtitle suggested. And I was right.

You've written letters to 26 people who have died, and most of them have gone on to heaven. Some of these people are well known - Todd Beamer, Farrah Fawcett, C.S. Lewis, Norman Vincent Peale, Madeleine L'Engle. Some should be better known - Paul Brand, Harold Shaw, George Sayer, Jim Elliott. And some are unnamed - like the girl in the iron lung, and Mr.Achiever.

Each of the 26, you say, touched you in a significant way, had an influence upon you, or made your life different and often better. Like the experiences of life itself, not all of these people and the people associated with them were positive, but all were important. Some you knew, and knew well; some you never met.

Calvin, I found myself strangely moved, and moved often, as I read your book. I understood the book and the reason for it better than I anticipated. You're writing in the full winter of your life; I'm beginning to feel the first touches of frost. You're leaving a kind of testimony, because it's important to name the people who made a difference in our lives. Especially in the winter.

I have to confess something. While I liked them all, two letters stood out for me.

Pastor Calvin Miller had great and precious gifts, among them was the ability to write well. This book recognizes several people he remembers as being an influence in his life so he writes "letters" to the deceased in heaven. A novel idea! Readers become engrossed quickly, searching their hearts for memories of their own. This is a personal book written before this good pastor died. I enjoyed it and bought some copies to share with others.

There is some sadness and some regret in these letters to the departed. To balance this book, and to complete my review, I urge you who are reading this to check out a poem by F.W. Brazier: "If with pleasure you are viewing, any work a man is doing, if you like him or you love him, TELL HIM NOW! Don't withhold your approbation till the priest makes his oration, and he lies with snowy blossoms over his brow. For no matter how you shout it he won't really care about it. He won't know how many teardrops you have shed. If you think some praise is due him, now's the time to slip it to him, for he cannot read his tombstone when he's dead"......

There is more to the poem, and because Pastor Miller was also a poet, he may have read the above at one time or another. There are several quotes in this book worth underlining. Many of the "letters" are directed to deceased folk we all remember.

When asked what surprised him the most about life, Billy Graham responded, "the brevity of it.". So, to include another verse of Brazier's poem, I will end with what I know Pastor Calvin Miller would readily agree with: "More than fame and more than money is the comment kind and sunny, and the hearty warm approval of a friend. For it gives to life a savor, makes him stronger, braver, and it gives him heart and courage to the end."

Moving book of letters written from Calvin Miller to those who have passed on. Each letter is unique and worth pondering in depth. Now that Miller has passed on from this life it is even more meaningful to read. Highly recommend it!

Calvin, I am addressing as a friend, not just an avid reader of your works; you are over extending and heart touching in this masterpiece. I wish I had just a small portion of your expertise. But this is about "Letters to Heaven', not my desire to excel.

The first chapter is fitting; it's about mother. I could feel the power in the words as you told of her greatness and personal guidance to tell you of Jesus. Your words magnify why Jesus is FIRST and ONLY in your life.

Todd Beamer brought tears to my eyes. The warrior in us wants us to be like him, even be in his place. Sometimes you only make a statement once in your life. I remember at Grandma's in Omaha, when you told me, " Son, God don't need your money; you need to give God his." Todd gave his life for many people. Who get's a chance to do this?

I never knew you had met Farrah. I always enjoyed her talent, so raw, so real, so professional. One only wonders why she was plucked from us at so early an age. As she said, the inner beauty is the most encompassing asset one may possess.

I must say that ole Ed required much of you. The Lord is proud of you for sticking with him. Your sessions withe Ed reminded me of Paul preaching in Rome. God required this of you, and Ed could have said, " You almost persuaded me.". Who really know if he accepted Christ. Only God knows.

But Johnny Cash? Ring of fire, I walk the Line, ect... I wish you had met him. But Johnny Cash. A good decision. Often I sit on the back patio, coffee in hand, listing to the early morning birds, realizing I am over 70 years of age, wondering when the Lord will call. Have I done anything to deserve riding on the Pale WHite Horse. Nothing! I have done nothing at 70+ years of age. I think John felt the same way.
