Featured in the New York Times and on PBS, Lillian Daniel’s writing is described as “biting, hilarious, pitch perfect, tender, and often stunningly beautiful.”
Her new book, Tired of Apologizing for a Church I Don't Belong To: Spirituality without Stereotypes, Religion without Ranting is generating international conversation about the changing religious landscape, including the rising number of “Nones,” people who self-identify has having no religious preference.
It continues the themes of her 2013 book When ‘Spiritual But Not Religious’ Is Not Enough: Seeing God in Surprising Places, Even the Church.
She has taught preaching at a number of schools, including Chicago Theological Seminary, the University of Chicago Divinity School and at her alma mater, Yale Divinity School, but don't hold that against her. She can’t be held responsible for everyone who falls asleep in church.
Lillian Daniel has spoken at the National Cathedral, Duke Chapel, Kings College, London and Queen’s College, Ontario, but on Sundays you can find her preaching at First Congregational Church in Dubuque, Iowa.
