Bio


Donald Miller is a best-selling American author and public speaker based in Portland, Oregon, who focuses on Christian spirituality as "an explanation for beauty, meaning, and the human struggle."

Miller's first book, "Prayer and the Art of Volkswagen Maintenance," chronicled a cross-country road trip he took at age 21 after leaving home. Republished in 2005 as "Through Painted Deserts," it was commercially successful. Miller wrote "Blue Like Jazz" in 2003, which would slowly become a New York Times Bestseller. The movie "Blue Like Jazz" was released in 2008. Miller had also written the screenplay along with Steve Taylor and Ben Pearson.

In 2004, Don released "Searching for God Knows What," a book about how the Gospel of Jesus explains the human personality. "Searching" has become required reading at numerous colleges across the country. Don's 2006 recent project was a book about growing up without a father called "To Own a Dragon." Don is the founder of The Belmont Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation which partners with local churches to create mentoring programs for young men growing up without fathers.

Don's next book, "A Million Miles in a Thousand Years," was released in late 2009.

Miller serves on President Barack Obama's Task Force on Fatherhood and Healthy Families.
