Dr. Turner is a highly regarded preacher in churches nationwide. As an ordained minister, she served congregations of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) before beginning her full-time teaching career. Her educational background in Old Testament and homiletics enables her to research and teach methodologies whereby the lives of the preacher and the community come into a responsible en-counter with the biblical text. In addition to publishing numerous articles, she is the author of Old Testament Words: Reflections for Preaching (2003) and The Storyteller’s Companion to the Bible: Prophets I, vol. 6 (1996). With Mary Lin Hudson, she is co-author of Saved from Silence: Finding Women’s Voice in Preaching (1999).
