For well over a decade, William H. Willimon has contributed to the “Last Word” column in The Christian Ministry. The columns are short, sometimes humorous, insightful meditations on the church and its ministry. In The Last Word, Willimon has chosen 52 of these meditations, which are ideal for use at the beginning of staff meetings or for reading and meditation by individual Christians.
Willimon’s “common touch,” which helps make theology more accessible, and the
often humorous slant of his writing, will make these meditations appreciated by a wide audience.
