Daniel Taylor calls himself “a Christian humanist with a fondness for the life of the mind, spiritual pilgrimage, and salty snacks.”
You are invited to explore descriptions and excerpts of his books , essays and talks. Also check out his blog and a forum for interacting with him and others—where you can, among other things, participate in an ongoing book discussion.
If you have a bit of wanderlust in you, and a love of history and books, you may be interested in travel opportunities with Taylor through “Thin Places Travel.” A photo gallery offers, among others, pictures from past trips.
Taylor’s books range from letters to his (then) young children about life and values to a personal exploration of the current relevance of ancient Celtic spirituality. A recurring topic in his writing is the role that stories play in shaping our lives. His latest book, Creating a Spiritual Legacy, encourages people to tell their own stories for the benefit of those they love.
He speaks frequently in a variety of venues about such topics as the role of doubt in the life of faith, the shape of a good life, contributing to shalom as our fundamental life purpose, spiritual legacy, Celtic Christianity, and living as a reflective believer in a pluralistic world. He also conducts workshops on writing about your life.
Along with his wife Jayne, Taylor has led many student and adult trips to places around the world, ranging from Britain to Brazil to Cuba to Australia—and many other evocative places in between. These trips are for reflective people on their own pilgrimages through life who are interested in others who have gone before. Feel free to be one of them.
All events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
