Calvin Miller has always been one of my favorite authors. I, especially, liked Life is Mostly Edges because I grew up in the same time frame he did & was flooded w/ memories of events, things he talked about. His works always touch me deep inside...JBL

Life Is Mostly Edges is the beautiful memoir of Calvin Miller, author and professor. I was struck by his poignant look at a postage stamp¿¿¿For life is mostly edges. It is small¿like a postage stamp¿and I liked the middle of my stamp more than the edges¿the middle is safe. Only the edges are dangerous, but it¿s also where we learn life¿s greatest truth: joy rarely erupts in the safe centers of our lives¿Joy lies only along the edges.¿ There is deep wisdom lying in that statement. Life Is Mostly Edges is divided into three sections. Each section deals with a different aspect of his life. I loved the story about the headstone. I had to wipe the tears from my eyes. Calvin Miller has led a remarkable life. You might ask me what was remarkable¿He can look back on his life and remember the good parts. He can share the tales with others. He does not dwell on bad memories. The Lord was always first in his life. My favorite part of the book was the last section. He shares his thoughts on growing older. ¿Being Old Is An Option!¿ Like you, Mr. Miller, I refuse to grow old. Miller writes with a lot of insight and humor. He demonstrates his love for his family and for the Lord. His life is an inspiration. This is a must read!
