Author Bio

Dr. Beck’s background at the University of Michigan has been in teaching religion, developing the curriculum in Studies in Religion, and working extensively on publications in biblical studies, including the Anchor Bible Series, the Anchor Bible Dictionary, Wm. B. Eerdmans Biblical Commentaries, and others. For many years now, she have also served on the Board of Directors of ETS, including the Academic Affairs Committee. She has worked hard to develop an exceptional and broad education program at ETS, one that will serve our student community well and will offer educational opportunities to challenge our diverse student body and our faculty. In her teaching at ETS, she strives to strengthen our understanding of the Bible, the foundation of our faith, and to discover and discern the wide range of truths as they apply to us today. The men and women portrayed in the Bible were inspired to action through their faith in God. They have become our role models, highlighted by Jesus Christ, who lived in humility and based His teaching on the needs of His people, modeled on the founders of the faith, including Abraham, Moses, and the prophets, to whom he refers repeatedly in His teachings. The inclusion in His ministry of women, the sick, the lame, the poor, the downtrodden, the outsiders is the inspiration of the new faith that became Christianity
