Our special Guest Presenter for the month of January is Dr. Melissa Jackson. Her topic is “Saviors of the People: Four Subversive Heroes in the Story of Israel” featuring presentations on Tamar, Rahab, Abigail and Ruth—four amazing Old Testament women.
According to Dr. Mark Biddle, Jackson was “the best student I ever had in over three decades of teaching.” A North Carolina native, Dr. Jackson attended UNC for her undergraduate degree, Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond for her Master of Divinity and Oxford University for her doctorate in Hebrew Bible.
Dr. Jackson works as an independent scholar and serves as managing editor of the scholarly journal Review & Expositor when she is not writing, speaking, preaching, teaching or researching. Please join us at the Adult Forum in January to hear Dr. Jackson!
