Is an edgy, honest, often hilarious exploration of the spirituality in the everyday world inhabited by humans and their animal friends.

“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)
