Paula Fae Trimble-Familetti

I am a Christian Feminist. I have, from a very young age, been interested in studying and teaching religion. I earned 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. I wrote "Prostitutes," "Vigins and Mothers: Questioning Teachings About Biblical Women"because I became increasingly aware that what I was taught about biblical women did not correspond with what their stories said to me. Also, patriarchal interpretations have been used to the detriment of women. My goal is to remove the patriarchal interpretations of biblical women's stories and allow fresh interpretations from a woman's perspective.
