Hillary Clinton may be headed from politics to the pulpit.
The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate told her longtime pastor William Shillady she would like to pursue a position of spiritual leadership, The Atlantic reports.
And Shillady, executive director of the United Methodist City Society, told the magazine: "Given her depth of knowledge of the Bible and her experience of caring for people and loving people, she'd make a great pastor."
Shillady is author of the new book, "Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton," which will be published next week by Abingdon Press.
Shillady told the Atlantic's Emma Green that Clinton, a Methodist, has always been greatly influenced by her faith.
"It's been there all along. The general public didn't necessarily want to accept the fact that she's a Christian because there's so many critics out there about the Clintons," he said.
Shillady's book contains 365 devotions and a forward by Clinton herself.
"It's an inspirational book. I do not believe that she encouraged me to write this book in any way to change the image of her," Shillady told the mag.
"She really found [the devotionals] so helpful to her in the midst of the contentious campaign that she felt that people would find some hope … from it."
