This week: A Conversation with Dr. Lisa M. Bowens

A graduate of the PhD program in Biblical Studies, Dr. Lisa M. Bowens now serves as an associate professor of New Testament and is the first African American woman to earn tenure in PTS’s Biblical Studies department. Dr. Bowens’s research interest include all-things-Paul, such as Paul and apocalyptic literature, Pauline anthropology, Pauline epistemology, and discipleship in the gospels. One of her courses, “African American Pauline Hermeneutics,” invites students to consider ways Pauline language and tradition have impacted the lives of African-Americans in terms of religious thought and experience. Her most recent book, African American Readings of Paul: Reception, Resistance, and Transformation, investigates these ideas and more.

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Bowens as she shares his perspective and answers your questions about Princeton Seminary, theological education, and much more.
