The Taste of New Wine is the first book published by Christian writer Keith Miller in 1965 with a foreword by Elton Trueblood.

Largely autobiographical, it describes his struggle to find a meaningful faith, and develops from it principles for renewing the Christian church.

Greg Ogden considers the book to be a foundational document in the revival of the small group movement within the church.[1]

First published in 1965, it is still in print in both paperback and hard cover. Miller followed The Taste of New Wine with a sequel, A Second Touch, followed by Habitation of Dragons, and subsequently authored or co-authored more than twenty other books, and became a noted speaker.

Keith Miller was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on April 19, 1927. He died from pancreatic cancer on January 22, 2012 in Austin, Texas at the age of 84.[2]
