Although exceeding one thousand pages in print, Miller’s Church History nevertheless
covers a wide range of ground relative to the amount written. Miller begins his history
at the time of Christ and St. Paul, and then moves through the centuries all the way up
to his time. Republished many times after its first edition, people often simply referred
to the book as “Miller’s Church History.” His approach to history stands in contrast to
the liberal higher criticism of biblical history belonging to many of his contemporaries.
Instead, Miller focused on the supreme authority of Scripture and the importance of
evangelism and religious education.
