Duane Miller, I Will Give Them an Everlasting Name: Pastoral Care for Christ’s Converts from Islam


  • Philip Hill Union School of Theology in Wales


Duane Miller is a pastor and a scholar. He is an Evangelical American Episcopalian minister with a BA and MA earned in America and a Ph.D from Edinburgh University examining conversion to Christianity from Islam. Miller believes the greatest problem has to do with a sense of identity, which he describes as having three essential aspects: core (who am I to myself?), social (who am I to my group or groups?) and collective (what is my group’s identity in relation to the wider world?). To provide answers to these questions, Miller reflects in brief chapters on a range of issues that he believes should be explained both to converts and to those offering them pastoral support.
