Lisa Miller is a senior editor at Newsweek. She oversees all of the magazine’s religion coverage and writes the regular “Belief Watch column.
Miller edited Newsweek’s “Spirituality in America” double issue, which looked at the rise of spirituality and why many Americans are choosing to seek spiritual experiences outside traditional religions. She has supervised publication of major cover stories including “Sex, Shame and the Catholic Church,” (March 2002), “The Bible and the Qur’an,” (February 2002), “Fighting Addiction,” (February 2001), and “God and the Brain,” (May 2001).
Now she’s tackling same-sex marriage in “Gay Marriage: Our Mutual Joy,” the cover story of the latest issue of Newsweek.
She opens by saying ” Opponents of gay marriage often cite Scripture. But what the Bible teaches about love argues for the other side.”
Miller came to Newsweek from the Wall Street Journal, where she was an award-winning senior special writer covering religion for the paper’s front page since 1997. Prior to the Journal, Miller worked at the New Yorker, Self magazine and Harvard Business Review. In 1998, she won a New York Newswomen’s Club award for feature writing. She earned a B.A. in English from Ohio’s Oberlin College. Miller is writing a book about contemporary beliefs and conceptions of heaven.
