Hannah AndersonI live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where I spend my days caring for my family, working with my husband in rural ministry, and scratching out odd moments to write. I am fascinated by the intersection of gender, church ministry, and human flourishing and I am the author of Made for More: An Invitation to Live in God’s Image (Moody, 2014). I also blog at Sometimes a Light and am a staff writer for Christ and Pop Culture. (twitter: @sometimesalight)

Jem Bloomfield: I live in England, where I teach literature at the University of Nottingham.  My previous research has focused on Early Modern drama, gender and performance, though I’m now spending more time on interdisciplinary work between Shakespeare Studies and Biblical Criticism.  I blog at Quite Irregular.

April Fiet: I serve as a co-pastor of a rural congregation in Iowa alongside my husband Jeff. Together we are raising two fantastic, school-age children, which keeps life fresh, fun, and a bit chaotic at times. I enjoy running (at a snail’s pace), karate, baking bread, reading (theology and children’s books), crocheting, and taking pictures of nearly everything. I blog at At the Table with April Fiet, and contribute to That Reformed Blog. (twitter: @aprilfiet)

Bronwyn Lea:  I am a South-African who once studied law and theology, and am now in California raising three small kids at home. My loves include ice-cream and the sound of my children laughing, good puns, witty dialogue and watching vegetables grow. I write at and various other places on the web. (twitter: @bronleatweets)

Hannah Malcolm: Currently in the process of moving from one East Coast to another, I am a Brit making my way to the States to continue my theological education. Interested in ecumenism, theological anthropology, ethics, social development and/or the Global Church? Let’s chat, preferably over a mug of tea. Or in the pub. You can read a bunch of my shorter musings over at I Don’t Have an Accent, You Have an Accent (twitter: @hannahmmalcolm)

Kristen PadillaI live in Birmingham, Alabama, where I get the joy of doing life with my husband, Osvaldo, and our 3-year-old son, Philip. In addition to having the greatest job of being a stay-at-home mom, I am a freelance writer. My passions include mentoring young women who feel called to ministry, theology, and biblical hermeneutics. You can read most of my ramblings on my blog at I hold an M.Div. from Beeson Divinity School, where my husband is associate professor of New Testament. We recently returned from a six month sabbatical in Cambridge, England, so these days you will find me reminiscing about the U.K., planning our next travels, or reading. (twitter: @kristenpadilla)

Alastair Roberts: I live in the north of England, where I have studied Theology over the last few years. My eyes light up when talking about biblical typology, Christian ethics, the sacraments, or word-related trivia. My obsessions include second hand bookstores, the wins and woes of the English cricket team, and online Boggle. I blog at unreasonable length over at Alastair’s Adversaria and am one of the participants in the Mere Fidelity podcast. (twitter: @zugzwanged)

Graham Ware: I am the pastor of Centre Street Baptist Church in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada. I am married to Jenelle, and am a father of three girls. I drink copious amounts of coffee, and regularly enjoy a pint of craft beer. I mainly read biblical theology stuff (and occasionally review books), and almost never read fiction (not that I think there’s anything wrong with that- just not my cup of tea). Topics of interest to me include biblical ethics, theology of the narrative portions of Scripture (esp. 1 & 2 Samuel and the Gospels), and I am just beginning to dabble in patristics and historical theology.
