More About William H. Willimon, James Mays & Paul Achtemeier


William H. Willimon The Reverend Dr. William H. Willimon is Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry at the Divinity School, Duke University. He is recently retired after serving eight years as Bishop of the North Alabama Conference of The United Methodist Church, where he led the 157,000 Methodists and 792 pastors in North Alabama. For twenty years prior to the episcopacy, he was Dean of the Chapel and Professor of Christian Ministry at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina.

Dr. Willimon is a graduate of Wofford College (B.A., 1968), Yale Divinity School (M.Div., 1971) and Emory University (S.T.D., 1973). He has served as pastor of churches in Georgia and South Carolina. For four years, beginning in 1976, he served as Assistant Professor of Liturgy and Worship at Duke Divinity School, teaching courses in liturgics and homiletics and served as Director of the Ministerial Course of Study School at Duke, and Presiding Minister in the Divinity School Chapel. When he returned to the parish ministry in 1980, he was Visiting Associate Professor of Liturgy and Worship at Duke for three years. He has been awarded honorary degrees from a dozen colleges and universities including Wofford College, Lehigh University, Colgate University, Birmingham-Southern College, and Moravian Theological Seminary. In 1992, he was named as the first Distinguished Alumnus of Yale Divinity School. He also serves on the faculties of Birmingham-Southern College as Visiting Distinguished Professor and as Visiting Research Professor at Duke Univeristy Divinity School.

He is the author of sixty books. His Worship as Pastoral Care was selected as one of the ten most useful books for pastors in 1979 by the Academy of Parish Clergy. Over a million copies of his books have been sold. In 1996, an international survey conducted by Baylor University named him one of the Twelve Most Effective Preachers in the English-speaking world.

His articles have appeared in many publications including The Christian Ministry, Quarterly Review, Liturgy, Worship and Christianity Today. He is Editor-at-Large for The Christian Century. He has served as Editor and Expositor (with his wife, Patricia) for Abingdon’s International Lesson Annual. He has written curriculum materials and video for youth, young adults, and adults. His Pulpit Resource is used each week by over eight thousand pastors in the USA, Canada, and Australia. A 2005 study by the Pulpit and Pew Research Center found that Bishop Willimon is the second most widely read author by mainline Protestant pastors.

William H. Willimon currently resides in Birmingham, in the state of Alabama.

Reviews - What do customers think about Acts (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching)?

Uneven but often brilliant  Oct 25, 2004
Very homiletical. Lyrical and smart. Theologically aware (if often Arminian and Neo-Orthodox -- expected for a United Methodist).

Not a verse by verse commentary. Willimon often takes overly large chunks (as much as 2-3 chapters) and gives thematic insights. Often these are highly original and brilliant. Just as often they use the text as a launching point for pet topics that are not central to the text.

No one should use this as your first overall commentary on Acts (John Stott is infinitely better for that). Certainly not the first commentary for technical matters either (try Bruce for that; or maybe Howard Marshall). Or even as the basic homiletical one (Kent Hughes is more consistent; even Boice is probably better most weeks). But it is a GREAT idea starter for the discerning reader. No preacher should be without it. One of the better volumes in the (highly uneven) Interpretation series.

 
Acts  Sep 27, 2002
This is a superb commentary! In fact, in twenty years of ministry, I've never even thought of reading a commentary cover to cover -- yet I couldn't stop myself with this one! I can't praise this enough: it conveys the excitement of the Early Church all the while making connections with today. Thank you Mr. Willimon!
