Welcome to my website!
I’m so glad you’re here. Take a look around, and make yourself at home.
As the Red-Haired Archaeologist–a flame-haired woman who doesn’t quite fit in academia but is passionate about archaeology and the Bible–I want to show you how to navigate the complex world of Scripture, history, and tradition. This means encouraging you to think critically about biblical texts, helping you to reconsider what you’ve “always been told” to believe, and emboldening you to distinguish between truth and tradition.
Check out my podcast, my blog, and my most recent books to learn more about my background and my work. You’ll see that I’m a church-going Christian…who graduated from Harvard. I’m a fair-skinned redhead…who works and plays under the sun. I enjoy being the proverbial square peg in a round hole because it reminds me not to assume I know everything about others based on where they are from, what they might do, or which Enneagram numbers they may claim.
I hope to see all Bible lovers work together to understand history, interpret Scripture, and apply God’s words to our lives. We’re discovering God together, and I’m ready to learn from you too.
Thanks for visiting–I hope you’ll stay a while!
