Faculty HeadshotMike Rumley-Wells is a writer who practices what a friend dubbed "reckless transparency." He writes about the intersection of the spiritual and secular.

His books include Something Like Faith, a profane coming-of-age novel; Authentic Faith: Feeding the Soul in Politically Divided Times, an encouragement to seek justice and offer grace in our rancorous, politically divided nation; and God Enters In, a book of reflections on Advent. In a former life, Mike served as a pastor and then lived in Nicaragua for seven years, doing community development and playing ultimate. He still plays ultimate.

His book, Grief, the Desert, and Survival Spirituality, is partly a memoir on the death of his son, Isaac, and partly solidarity and companionship with those who have suffered the death of a child.
