Miller has a unique and fresh way of looking at traditional concepts in the Mormon Faith. They speak both to the heart and the mind, using the current culture and language as currency to communicate gospel ideas and ideals to his teenage daughter. Scholars, adults, and teens all find his approach accessible and powerful.

Adam Miller’s second edition of Letters to a Young Mormon will be published by Deseret Book—a sizeable upgrade, greater legitimacy, and of course a much larger audience. Adam will share two of three new letters he has written, seeking feedback and critique. One is on science and one is on the environment. A third essay on women, was mutually decided between he and Deseret Book, not to be included.
