Meet Dr. Beth Felker Jones

We at Deeply Rooted want to give women the opportunity to connect with God intellectually as well as emotionally which is why we’ve asked Dr. Beth Felker Jones to speak.  Beth is a theology professor at Wheaton College who teaches classes like Gender and Theology, Christian Ethics, Marriage, Sex, and Family in the Christian Tradition, Doctrine of the Holy Spirit, and Human Trafficking: Political and Theological Perspectives.

On the lighter side of things, she enjoys writing on pop culture, tackling literary phenomena and its effects on our hearts and mind, evidenced in articles such as “The Hunger Games, Christian Ethics and the Young,” and “Why Mark Driscoll is Wrong About Twilight.”

She writes regularly for the media section of The Christian Century, sharing her thoughts on Beyonce’s Lemonade, the movie Bad Moms, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead.

She is the author of several books: Practicing Christian Doctrine: An Introduction to Thinking and Living Theologically, Faithful: A Theology of Sex, Marks of His Wounds: Gender Politics and Bodily Resurrection, and Touched by a Vampire: Discovering the Hidden Messages in the Twilight Saga.
