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.

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

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Sunday Dinner - a beautiful reminder  Nov 1, 2004
Willimon writes a beautifully detailed description of how the Lord's Table was actually meant to be shared. He seems to be able to cross denominational lines and touch the very essence of Christ's ministry. I found this book to be provoking, inspiring and challenging. Read in context with the new testament scripture - it will expand one's thinking, belief and application of the Lord's table.
Welcome to the Family Meal  Aug 25, 2000
The title of this book tells a great deal about the angle from which Willimon addresses the subject of communion for the Christian church. The gathering of Christians to share communion is like a Sunday dinner shared week after week by the family , with the customary ritual way of doing things that makes it all feel like being at home, with your parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins joining in, where everyone has a place,and where your sense of self and belonging are nurtured and strengthened for the times you must leave and go back to your working world. The study guide at the end of the book helps groups get discussion started in down-to-earth, graphic ways. I've used this book several times to help our church grow in understanding communion and recommend it highly. "Sunday Dinner," together with its companion book, "Remember Who You Are: Baptism, A Model for Christian Life," makes the best studies of these two sacraments that I have found that are usable for church members.
