"In my bibliographies there are no women in the evangelical tradition, and no Australian women scholars." This unique volume addresses this gap, with eighteen biblically rich and academically rigorous chapters by established and emerging Australian women scholars in the evangelical tradition. The authors consider our relationship with the land and Indigenous peoples, neighborhood, embodiment, (dis)ability, abortion, leadership, work, architecture, the media, Song of Songs and domestic violence, and Jeremiah and weaponized rape, and demonstrate recent methodologies such as a social identity reading of Exodus, sensory readings of Psalms and John's Gospel, and discipleship readings of Mary and Martha and the woman at the well. A contemporary Kriol psalm and stories of pioneering Australian women theological students and teachers complete the volume. Valuable for students and teachers across Bible, theology, ministry, and practice subjects, this book is an essential inclusion in any theological library.

“This volume is one of the most inspiring books I have read in a long time. These Australian female scholars offer a theologically profound and biblically rich series of explorations into Indigenous peoples, biblical themes, human experience, embodied faith, land and place, and mission and witness. I cannot overstate the timeliness, quality, and importance of this book.”

—Graham Joseph Hill, principal and director of research, Stirling Theological College, University of Divinity, and author of Holding Up Half the Sky



Grounded is an extraordinarily rich anthology of essays representing women’s voices on a broad range of topics in relation to the Christian faith from an equally broad range of perspectives. . . . It is shot through with a welcome realism that is often lacking in scholarly essays. Although entirely penned by Australian women scholars, it would be a mistake to think this volume was written solely for women or for Australians. . . . I highly recommend this to scholars, students, and church people alike.”

—Lucy Peppiatt, principal, Westminster Theological Centre, United Kingdom



“This book dispels two myths: that there are very few women in Australian evangelical biblical and theological scholarship and that the Bible has little to say to the pressing issues of our day. Grounded showcases profound and practical theology at its best. A rich and rewarding read.”

—Brian Rosner, Principal, Ridley College, Australia



“This eclectic, engaging collection of essays offers excellent exegetical insights into Scripture and pearls of wisdom for today’s problems. The authors’ wide range of experiences and confident humility enable them to address difficult issues head on. The book is a feast for the soul, a thoroughly enjoyable read that will shape future conversations about women’s lives in Scripture and our modern world.”

—Lynn H. Cohick, Provost/Dean, Denver Seminary



“It was enriching to read the diverse experiences of the women in this collection of essays. Informed by lived reality, each writer brings fresh insight into her area of expertise. What often stands out is a holistic view of the human person and spirituality, which is, of course, very biblical. Informative, stimulating, inspiring. Highly recommended.”

—Siu Fung Wu, Lecturer in New Testament Studies, Whitley College, Australia



Grounded recognizes the significance of our bodies, the land, our histories, and experiences for interdisciplinary biblical and theological scholarship. The contributors unabashedly bring their whole selves into the research and writing process. Consequently, this work is challenging and illuminating, directly addressing weighty topics with clarity and thoughtfulness while doing so in a refreshing and personal way. “

—Christa McKirland, Lecturer in Systematic Theology, Carey Baptist College, New Zealand



Grounded is a landmark collection, showcasing the immense insight and expertise of Australian women doing theology in an evangelical tradition. From First Nations leaders to contemporary Pentecostals, close biblical exegesis to meditations on architecture and media, this is a stimulating set of engagements with the Christian Scriptures. At a moment when many people are seeking wiser ways of living in this particular time and place, Grounded is a great gift to the Australian church, and indeed to the wider nation.”
