Barbara Brown Taylor


Hello, I’m Barbara Brown Taylor.
I say things you're not supposed to say.


“Few souls are as synced to the world’s mysteries as Barbara Brown Taylor’s....
Taylor writes spiritual nonfiction that rivals the poetic power of
C.S. Lewis and Frederick Buechner.”


Barbara Brown Taylor is the New York Times bestselling author of An Altar in the World, Learning to Walk in the Dark, and Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others. She has been an Avon lady, a cocktail waitress, a horseback riding instructor, and a hospital chaplain, but her favorite job was teaching world religions at Piedmont College for twenty years before putting the chalk down in 2017. She now divides her time between writing, speaking, and caring for the land on which she lives. Barbara and her husband Ed tend a small farm in the foothills of the Appalachians.
