Meet the Author!



Aaron Milavec has been an innovative teacher and software developer for twenty-five years. He is currently engaged with others in creating Catherine of Siena Virtual College--a center promoting international, interactive learning for women in community online. In his free time, he gravitates towards the arts: painting with water colors, glass blowing, throwing pots.

In his youth, Milavec was fascinated with science. After beginning graduate studies in physics, however, Milavec gravitated toward the philosophy of science and ended up with an abiding passion for religious inquiry and spiritual development. While a Research Fellow at the University of Victoria, he completed an essay, "How Acts of Discovery Transform our Tacit Knowing Powers in both Scientific and Religious Inquiry," Zygon 42/2 (2006) 465-486.

Milavec earned his S.T.B. from the University of Fribourg in 1968 and a Th.D. from the Graduate Theological Union (Berkeley) in 1973.

Milavec has published twelve books, seven chapters in collected works, and fifty journal articles. His most recent book, "Salvation Is from the Jews," is a soul-searching exploration of how Christians need to rethink their theology in order to be faithful to the Jewish heritage received from Jesus two thousand years ago. His eBook, "What Jesus Would Say to a Lesbian Couple," is a no-holds-barred exposure of the ugly underbelly of the Catholic Bishops campaign against same-sex marriages.

Prior to this, Milavec devoted sixteen years to unlocking the hidden life of those mid-first-century Christians who lived the Way of Life as described in the Didache. He affectionately nicknamed his thousand-page volume as "the elephant" and his hundred-page volume as "the mouse." The elephant is entitled The Didache--Faith, Hope, and Life of the Earliest Christian Communities, 50-70 CE (Paulist Press); the mouse is entitled The Didache-- Text, Translation, Analysis, and Commentary (Liturgical Press).
