  • Writer and Preacher
Born in 1946 in South Carolina, William H. Willimon is the author of over fifty books, a retired bishop in the United Methodist Church, a professor of Christian ministry at Duke Divinity School, and an editor-at-large of the Christian Century. Willimon received his master’s from Yale Divinity School and a doctorate from Emory University. He served as dean of Duke Chapel at Duke University for twenty years. He has taught in Australia, Germany, Singapore, and New Zealand, and his books have been used in seminaries around the world. One survey of pastors ranked him one of the “twelve most effective preachers in the English-speaking world,” and another found him one of the two most frequently read writers by pastors in mainline Protestantism, along with Henri Nouwen. Willimon’s books include Resident Aliens: Life in the Christian Colony (with Stanley Hauerwas) and, most recently, Fear of the Other: No Fear in Love (2016) and Who Lynched Willie Earle?: Confronting Racism through Preaching (2017).
