The Rev. David R. Anderson


David Anderson is an Episcopal minister living in Springtown, Pennsylvania. After completing graduate studies in English literature at the University of Chicago, he taught English literature and writing workshops at Columbia College (Chicago) and Northern Illinois University. Sensing a vocation to ministry, he attended Yale Divinity School, graduated magna cum laude and was ordained in the Episcopal Church. He has served parishes in Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

He is the author of Breakfast Epiphanies: Finding Wonder in the Everyday (Beacon Press, 2002), named by Spirituality & Health as one of “The Best Spiritual Books of 2002.” His latest book, Losing Your Faith, Finding Your Soul: The passage to new life when old beliefs die (Convergent Books) was published in September 2013.

David has served on numerous boards, including the Trustee Board of Berkeley Divinity School at Yale, where he also served as President of the Graduate Society Council. He was selected by the Episcopal Church Foundation to participate in the Clergy Leadership Project, and for a sabbatical to pursue his writing he was the recipient of a grant from the Lilly Foundation.

David is married to Pam Anderson, a cookbook author and food blogger. They have two daughters.
