More About William H. Willimon


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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lord Teach Us: The Lord's Prayer & the Christian Life?

Warning: waste of time and money, left-wing political garbage  Dec 17, 2007
Ok. I was drawn into the unholy trinity of these three writers: Willimon, Hauerwas, and Wright. They all praise one another's books to the heavens. And yet, what a waste of time and money their blathering turned out to be. From "Lord Teach Us," page 50, "Our goal is not to fill you with enough spiritual hot air that you float a foot above the earth." Yet, that hot air is just what Willimon and Hauerwas offer you, as in, "Christianity is forever mixing religion and politics. Jesus is, as the prayer portrays, very political" (pg 51). This is the stuff that gave us the Inquisition, the Holocaust, and other intolerance. These guys actually have the temerity to state: "So when a president prays a public prayer, calling upon God to bless our troops going into war, that is blasphemy" (pg. 48). The writers are so far left they are far right. Willimon and Hauerwas write pompous, politically motivated diatribes.
 
Lord Teach Us  Jan 9, 2007
This is a really fine overview of the Lord's Prayer. It takes a prayer most of us have memorized and explains in detail what each verse is trying to teach us. It encouraged me while providing practical guidance on how to implement what I learned into my life.
 
Unique way to begin exploring Christianity  Dec 26, 2000
Using the Lord's Prayer as a starting point, Hauerwas and Willimon guide readers through major areas of Christian Ethics and thought in their trademark style. Readers familiar with the work of Hauerwas and Willimon will enjoy seeing their individual styles shine through occasionally, and the book reads like one of Willimon's sermons. It is important to understand that this is not a discussion of the Lord's Prayer for experienced Christians, but it can be good for people who have claimed but perhaps not actively thought about their faith.
