Editorial Reviews

Review

"We will never learn to find God in ordinary life until we are taught by someone who has. Mike Milton has been finding God in the ordinary from his first childhood day of poverty in Louisiana, in everything from cinnamon rolls to Old Spice, from hollyhocks to hurricanes. With a pastor's heart, he obviously longs for us to find him as well." --Michael Card, Singer-Songwriter and Author

"A pleasure to read. Warm, encouraging, inspiring, and uplifting." --Sally Lloyd-Jones, Author of The Jesus Storybook Bible

"Who says that theology is dull and too otherworldly? They must not be referring to this book. Whether it is Aunt Eva's mincemeat pies or the great doughnut fraud, each pithy vignette teaches deep theology in the most down-to-earth manner that will bless your heart. What a good source of practically applied theology as Mike Milton writes about grief, trials, joys, and all other aspects of life and reality." --Charles Dunahoo, Author of Making Kingdom Disciples

More About the Author

Michael A. Milton, (Dipl., Defense Language Institute, Dipl., Command and General Staff College, B.A., Mid America Nazarene University; M.Div., Knox Seminary; Ph.D., University of Wales) is the Chancellor and Chief Executive Officer of Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS). He is the host and Bible teacher of Faith for Living, a multi media broadcast outreach of RTS on television and radio throughout North America.

Michael Anthony Milton was born in New Orleans, orphaned, and reared by his Aunt Eva in a rural area on the Louisiana-Mississippi border. A former top secret Navy linguist (Albanian), salesman and manager for two Fortune 50 companies, Milton accepted the call to preach, eventually becoming a pastoral intern to D. James Kennedy before completing seminary at Knox Seminary. An ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (PCA), who served on the Board of Directors of that denomination, Milton's ministerial record includes the planting of two churches (Overland Park, KS and Savannah, GA) and the founding of Westminster Academy, a Christian preparatory school, in Overland Park, Kansas. Mike Milton was called in 2001 to become the 12th pastor in 173 years at First Presbyterian Church, Chattanooga, TN. In 2008 he was inaugurated as president of Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC. He was elected in 2010 to become Chancellor of RTS and after a well-ordered, board directed Succession Plan, assumed his role on June 1, 2012.

Milton has continued to write books, contribute articles and sermons in peer reviewed journals as well as popular journals and Internet sites like Christianity.com and preaching.com. He is a regular preacher in pulpits and conferences across the country and has appeared in national radio and television ministries. He has written and recorded two musical compact discs and performs his Christian folk music often to illustrate his sermons. He continues ministry, also, as a United States Army chaplain. In 2010 the Chief of Chaplains named Milton as a charter member of the College of Military Preachers and he was appointed to teach at the U.S. Armed Forces Chaplain Center and School, Fort Jackson, SC. Milton lives with his wife and son in the Charlotte area.

Format: Paperback
As I read Mr. Milton's book Small Things Big Things, the words to an old hymn I learned in childhood kept coming to my mind, "Tell me the stories of Jesus, I love to hear; things I would ask Him to tell me, if He were here; scenes by the wayside, tales of the sea, stories of Jesus, tell them to me." Mr. Milton told me the stories of Jesus in this book, using metaphors, personal experiences, God's incredible creation, and scripture. It was as though he wove deep theological truths in a warm blanket and wrapped it around my shoulders to provide comfort and security in times of uncertainty and to elicit praise to God for being my personal Good Shepherd. Mr. Milton also wielded the sword of scripture at times to cut to my heart and trim away the false notions that the enemy would like to embed in my being. I found myself wanting to share a particular story or truth from each chapter with a friend or family member who needs encouragement, comfort, direction, or laughter. I recommend this book to those in need of re-fixing their eyes on Jesus, because Mr. Milton points us to Christ, the author and perfecter of our faith, and that is a HUGE thing in my world of many distracting little things.

What a delightful way to see God's grace in everyday, real life! This talented writer, Michael Milton, penetrates the mysteries of providence in suspenseful ways that surprise us, make us laugh and think. From Snooper and whether animals will be in heaven to where we meet God in unexpected places, this book inspires, entertains, and ignites insight. Have you ever thought of God's aroma? Or of "honeymooner schadenfreude"? Such revelations await the readers of this little BIG book, "Small Things, BIG Things." We miss so much in life if we fail to see God at work each hour and in each person we meet. In this book we even see how hot, sticky cinnamon rolls can make us consciously thankful for the appetite the Lord gives us. Reading it wakes us up to enjoy and glorify God right now.

Some of my favorite books come off P&R Publishing's presses. I had good hopes for this one, but it didn't fit the bill.

Small Things, Big Things: Inspiring Stories of Everyday Grace by Michael A. Milton was released in November. I love the premise. I love the idea of finding God in all the details and parts of life. I want to see how I am just a small part of a much bigger story.

I did myself a disservice by flying blindly. I hadn't heard of Milton previously and should have gotten to know him better before I read this book. The book has a lot of biographical tidbits in it, and they were slightly difficult to piece together at the same time as I was trying to hear the 52 lessons he was teaching. Milton wrote this book over an extended period as letters/essay to his Chattanooga congregation. The writing was very pastoral. I think understanding him better, becoming more familiar with him, would have helped. Even watching these videos first would have helped.

His writing kept reminding me of Max Lucado's for some reason, though they didn't pull me in as far as Lucado used to (it's been a dozen years since I've read him). His home-spun, salt-of-the-earth, devotional illustrations were often quite enjoyable. And I'm sure this genre will fit the bill for a good number of people.

Perhaps I felt that too much illustration and not enough meat, makes for storybook reading, not devotional reading.

The book itself is beautiful. It's a great cover, a wonderful size that feels right in the hand, bright paper; it smells great [I hate having to mention how much I like the odor of books]. But the content didn't stir me like I was hoping. I look forward to hearing though how it will be a help to others.
