Paula Fae Familetti

With few exception Christianity and every contemporary religion, has suffered from the effects of being written, interpreted and conveyed by men for men. My gold medal winning book, "Prostitutes, Virgins and Mothers: Questioning Teachings About Biblical Women", interprets the stories of select biblical women from a woman's perspective for a contemporary audience.

I am a lifelong lover of the study of religion and hold a B.A. and an M.A. in the subject. I also have a Doctor of Ministry in International Feminist Theology. I am a passionate advocate for women's rights, inclusive language and biblical literacy.

I hope to see you on Saturday, March 10 at the Tucson Festival of Books.
