FAQs

Can you provide some background on the Rev. Barbara Brown Taylor?

Barbara Brown Taylor is an Episcopal priest, teacher, and bestselling author of fourteen books on religion and spirituality, including Leaving Church, An Altar in the World and Learning to Walk in the Dark, which was featured on the cover of Time magazine and named one of the best religion books of 2014 by Publisher’s Weekly. She has served on the faculties of Piedmont College, Columbia Theological Seminary, Candler School of Theology at Emory University, McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University, and on the Certificate in Theological Studies program at Arrendale State Prison for Women in Alto, Georgia. She has been recognized by Baylor University as one of the top twelve preachers in America, and in 2015, she was named Georgia Woman of the Year. Her latest book, Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others, will be published in April 2019.

Barbara Brown Taylor's newest book, Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others was published this March. She will be speaking about concepts that have grown from her years of teaching World Religion at Piedmont College in GA. She and her students participated in services and spiritual practices with leaders and people from five religious traditions: Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist and Christian.

Among her many writings is this quote for your reflection: "The hardest spiritual work in the world is to love the neighbor as the self - to encounter another human being not as someone you can use, change, fix, help, save, enroll, convince or control, but simply as someone who can spring you from the prison of yourself, if you will allow it."
