“Wisdom of the Carpenter” Coming Soon


Wisdom of the Carpenter is a unique daily prayer and calendar book that Ron wrote and quickly sold his entire inventory of. Then in 2002, it was picked up and published by Ulysses Press. In 2010, Ulysses Press went out of business and so did printing of this book. Ron and his son Jim had been working on getting the copyright and text back from the original publisher just prior to Ron’s passing. After he died, Jim was finally sent the book files and self-published this new edition. The book cover is now getting an update by a professional design team, it will then go into print and be available in late August of 2011 in both paperback and digital eBook formats.

“It’s an honor to have been successful in fulfiling this goal of my dad’s. I know he would have loved the new cover we’re designing,” Jim Miller said while smiling. “Most of my dad’s books are very scholarly and this is a book that readers of all levels and all faiths can enjoy.”

I will continue to keep everyone posted here.

    My copy of Wisdom of the Carpenter is well-used. I have read it
    every day for many years. Also have given many copies as gifts to appreciative friends. Now we can once again buy this remarkable book.
    Thank you!

    I hope both of Rosemary’s classes will be filmed, so that those of us unable to attend will be able to watch them here @ Ron Miller’s World, a wonderful oasis for self-renewal.
