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.
