"Thinking About Jesus in a Post-Christian World "                

by The Rev. Dr. 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. For 20 years prior to that he was Dean of the Chapel and Professor of Christian Ministry at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina.

He is the author of sixty books, with over a million copies sold. His Worship as Pastoral Care was selected as one of the 10 most useful books for pastors by the Academy of Parish Clergy. He also serves as editor-at-large for The Christian Century. A 2005 study by the Pulpit and Pew Research Center named Bishop Willimon as the second most widely read author by mainline Protestant pastors.

An international survey conducted by Baylor University named him one of the 12 most effective preachers in the English-speaking world.
