Paul spent his childhood in California and Oregon, moving east when his father, Dr. Jack Miller, began teaching at Westminster Seminary. After graduating from college, Paul taught at inner-city Christian schools in Philadelphia for ten years. With a group of parents, he started Spruce Hill Christian School (K-8), an inner-city, multiracial school where he was principal and teacher.
In 1983, he helped his father found World Harvest Mission, serving as associate director from 1983 until 1996. In 1999, he completed a master of divinity at Biblical Seminary and founded seeJesus, a mission that helps Christians and non-Christians alike “see Jesus” through inductive Bible studies.
During his time at World Harvest, Paul wrote several discipling courses, including a course on grace called Sonship. In the early '90s, Paul wrote The Love Course, which studies the personality of Jesus as a way of learning to love. In 2001, Paul wrote Love Walked Among Us (NavPress), weaving stories of how Jesus loves together with stories of his own struggles to love. The book is based on The Person of Jesus study, an in-depth, inductive Bible study of what Jesus is like as a person. Both the book and the study are written to include non-Christians who have no background in Christianity.
In 2005, Paul’s A Praying Life study (formerly PrayerLife), an eleven-week course on prayer for “badly praying Christians,” was released. In 2009, Paul wrote A Praying Life (NavPress), in which the principles in the study are combined with Paul's own stories of learning to live through prayer. In 2011, Paul wrote Ruth: Love Redefined, a study on the book of Ruth.
Paul is married to Jill, who is known for her sense of humor and faith. They have six children and nine grandchildren, and live in the Philadelphia area.
