One Year Anniversary for Women Biblical Scholars Site!

Women Biblical Scholars was launched in January 2015 to remedy the lack of any site on the entire Web highlighting female scholars in biblical studies (and related fields). The goal was to raise awareness of the important work women are doing and make it easier to find their scholarship. This past year thousands of people visited this site from 90 different countries. And the Twitter account now has over 400 followers. Over seventy posts went up, including twenty-three interviews with current scholars from Duke, Seattle Pacific, Missouri State, Wheaton, Harvard, Bethel, Hebrew Union, Howard, Regent (Vancouver), Westmont, Ashland, St. Andrews, and more.

Women Biblical Scholars will continue to add to the growing pool of resources here in hopes more teachers and clergy will take advantage of these scholars’  great contributions for use in the classroom and faith communities. Help us get the word out! Send the link to your friends, colleagues, and pastors/rabbis. Send a tweet spotlighting WBS and mention us on Facebook. Also if you would like to help advance the mission of Women Biblical Scholars in other ways send an e-mail to: women.biblical.scholars@gmail.com
