Frederick Buechner
Frederick Buechner is an ordained Presbyterian minister, but has never pastored a church and rarely attends one. His ministry is his writing: 32 novels and memoirs so far, and some sermons, as a guest preacher, many of which are in a new book, SECRETS IN THE DARK. For many Christians he's a celebrity, but Buechner feels that seeking ordination is the worst possible career move for a writer.
