In her writings, lectures and work as a resource to national and international church bodies, Beth Nordbeck offers insights into the historical roots and precedents of today’s trends in American religion. Her interests range from the roots of Congregationalism in New England to ecumenism and new religious movements.

Her recent books address denominational consolidation and expansion in the 19th century and the history of Congregationalism in New Hampshire. In 2002 she published a history of the Massachusetts Council of Churches and “O God Tender and Just: Reflections and Responses after September 11, 2001.” An ordained United Church of Christ minister, she is co-editor of Prism, the theological journal for the denomination. She joined the faculty in 1990 and served as dean for 11 years.
