Obituary of Wallace Ruben Miller

Some time ago I took the DNA analysis test offered by Ancestry.com. It didn’t yield too much in the way of surprises, but it did give me a new found respect for people who record and document vital records. For example, I enjoyed seeing immigration documents for my most famous relative, Fernando Botero.

So, when a cousin of mine shared this document with me, I was very thankful. I thought I might share it here, so that anyone related to Mr. Wallace Ruben Miller of Culbertson, Montana—my great-grandfather—might be able to access this obituary. His son, my grandfather, Duane Wallace Miller, is noted here, as is my great-grandmother, Gudrun Nelson.

I was born in Montana and grew up in Colorado and Puebla (in Mexico). I completed a BA in philosophy at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and then an MA in theology at St Mary's University (also in San Antonio). Later life took me to Jordan where my wife and I studied Arabic, to Israel where I helped found a seminary, and to Scotland for doctoral work, among other places. I'm highly interested in the interactions of Islam, Christianity and secularism in modern contexts. My main areas of research for my PhD in divinity were religious conversion from Islam to Christianity, contextual theology, and the shari'a's treatment of apostates. I've also published research on global Anglicanism and the history of Anglican mission in the Ottoman Empire. I've had the pleasure of teaching in many places over the years: from Costa Rica to Turkey, and Kenya to Tunisia. I am at-large lecturer and researcher in Muslim-Christian relations at The Christian Institute of Islamic Studies (www.tciis.org), and deacon at the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer in Madrid, Spain. Visit my blog (duanemiller.wordpress.com) or academia.edu page for more information or to have me speak at your church, university or seminary.

  1. WOW! WE DID DNA TESTS THROUGH NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC YEARS AGO. MEETING WIITH ONE OF PETE’S LONG LOST COUSINS NEXT WEEKEND. OUR DAUGHTER

    AND TWO OF PETE’S COUSINS WILL BE THERE.

    THIS WAS A LONG-LOST COUSIN BECAUSE HE WAS ADOPTED AND DIDN’T HAVE THE WAIT NAME. BUT THE DNA TEST HELPED HIM MEET HIS FAMILY.
