First Blog

I am the author of Prostitutes, Virgins and Mothers: Why Do We Believe What We Believe About Biblical Women?  The book will be released  March of 2014 as part of Women's History Month and International Women's Day. I am a cradle Christian and have long been disturbed by the portrayal or absence of women the Bible.  For far to long traditional interpretations  of biblical women have been used to limit their full participation in faith communities.  The recent Conclave of the Roman Catholic Church serving as an example of women's exclusion from making decision which affect the whole church.  

I hold a B.A. in religion from Chapman University, an M.A. in religion from Liberty University and a Dr. of Ministry in International Feminist Theology from San Francisco Theological Seminary.  It is my sincere hope that a fresh examination and interpretation of these women's stories will result in conclusion which do not limit women in their participation in their faith communities.

I have included this video in my first blog as a celebration of strong, spirited, beautiful women.
Hope to hear from you,
