Adam Hamilton is senior pastor of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas, one of the fastest growing, most highly visible churches in the country. The Church Report named Hamilton’s congregation the most influential mainline church in America, and he preached at the National Prayer Service as part of the presidential inauguration festivities in 2013.
Adam writes and teaches on life’s tough questions, the doubts with which we all wrestle, and the challenging issues we face today. He explores the “gray” areas that present themselves when the Bible’s teachings and life experiences cross paths. Adam also has a passion for helping Christians grow in their faith and understanding of the Bible. He is known for his way of helping those striving to be Christians to see the implications of the Christian gospel for daily life. He has authored many books and several small group studies on topics as diverse as forgiveness, simple living, love and marriage, morality, politics, God’s will, and world religions. Adam’s writings also faithfully confront difficult topics like homosexuality, faith and science, separation of church and state, and abortion.
