Gulley is a Quaker pastor and beloved writer and speaker who has become the voice of small-town American life.

Gulley's memoir, "I Love You, Miss Huddleston: And Other Inappropriate Longings of My Indiana Childhood," recounts his coming-of-age years in Danville, Ind.
In addition, Gulley and co-author James Mulholland describe their progressive worldview in their books, "If Grace Is True" and "If God Is Love," followed by Gulley's books "If the Church Were Christian" and "The Evolution of Faith" which propose a fresh direction for Christianity.
Gulley was raised in Danville where he lives today with his wife, Joan, and their sons, Spencer and Sam, in a comfortable house with a welcoming porch. Many of his characters and recollections are taken from his boyhood in this small Midwestern town.
