“I am continually amazed by the Bible’s capacity to capture our imaginations and cause us to think in fresh ways about God, ourselves, and our world. Scripture may be thousands of years old, but it continues to surprise, inspire, disturb, astonish, and ultimately transform us.”

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Matthew R. Schlimm is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church. He has served churches in Michigan, Minnesota, and North Carolina. He completed his Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament at Duke University in December 2008. His research interests focus on biblical theology and ethics. His dissertation, “From Fratricide to Forgiveness: The Ethics of Anger in Genesis,” seeks to reclaim the importance of emotion for ethical living.
