Dr. Paula Trimble-Familetti is a passionate advocate for women’s rights, inclusive language, and biblical literacy. She holds 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. She has taught Women in Religion and Women’s History classes at Chapman University.
Her book Prostitutes, Virgins and Mothers: Questioning Teachings about Biblical Women is an incredible reimagining of certain Biblical stories through the eyes of the female main characters. Informational and entertaining, this book made me look at the Bible in a whole new but deeper way.
In my first in-person interview, I talk with Dr. Paula about how she became interested in this topic and about her spiritual journey.
