Letters to a Young Mormon

Adam Miller spends his days teaching philosophy to students at Collin College in McKinney, Texas, but the most important lessons he’s ever prepared have been for his own children. He distilled many of those lessons into his new book, Letters to a Young MormonMiller’s letters are meant for a young Mormon who is familiar with Mormon life but green in their faith. In simple but profound prose, Miller addresses the real beauty and real costs of trying to live a Mormon life in today’s world. He encourages Mormons young and old to live in a way that refuses to abandon either life or Mormonism. Most importantly, even while dispensing wisdom, Miller wonders alongside the reader. Letters to a Young Mormon is unlike anything ever written for a young Latter-day Saint audience.
