About

Lindsay Hardin Freeman, a Minnesota-based Episcopal priest, has won over thirty awards for journalistic excellence, including the 2015 Gold Medal Award in Bible Study from Independent Publisher.

From 2010-2014, she and a research team worked to do something never done before: to document every word spoken in the Bible by women. The resulting 477-page book, Bible Women: All Their Words and Why They Matter, was published by Forward Movement and co-sponsored by The Episcopal Church Women in September, 2014.

Research findings have made news around the world: The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, The Huffington Post, The Daily Mail, Church Times, Christianity Today, Urban Christian, Bring Me The News, The Living Church, and more.

A popular speaker and retreat leader on Bible women and contemporary spirituality, Lindsay is the author/editor of eight books, and has served congregations in Massachusetts, Philadelphia and Minnesota. The long-time editor of Vestry Papers (2001 – 2010), she also serves as adjunct clergy for St. David’s, Minnetonka.

Her work takes her around the country, speaking to groups about the accomplishments and struggles of Bible women. She enjoys finding humor and grace in the Bible, and shares it fully.

This is how I see and hear Bible women: vibrant, alive, spirited.
