Author Biography

Rachel Miller Jacobs, Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary

Rachel Miller Jacobs, Goshen, Indiana, got fired up about the Bible about twelve years ago when two things happened: she realized that the Bible is a book (as an English major, she knew what to do with books), and her youngest son declared his conviction that Jesus was actually a woman (he was five years old at the time, so this observation opened up possibilities for engaging in biblical interpretation with children). She has since spent many happy years reading the Bible in a wide variety of settings with a whole range of people of all ages. A former pastor, she is a spiritual director and the worship resources coordinator for Leader magazine.
