The London School of Theology (LST) is delighted to welcome Miriam Bier to the faculty team as LST’s new Lecturer in Old Testament. Fresh from the completion of her PhD on Lamentations at the University of Otago in March, Miriam will be joining LST in September 2012.
Miriam's research interests include the book of Lamentations, dialogic reading strategies, evangelical hermeneutics, feminist hermeneutics, and theological readings of the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible.
Miriam expressed her excitement about joining the London School of Theology:
“As an emerging Christian scholar and teacher, my teaching and research are motivated by a profound sense of responsibility to God, to the academy and to the church, for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the world.
LST’s emphasis on high academic standards, alongside authentic Christian witness, resonates with my own pursuit of an integrated life of scholarship, teaching and service.”
Originally from New Zealand, Miriam’s church background includes Presbyterian, Anglican, New Life (Pentecostal) and Baptist.
A keen preacher and teacher, Miriam is also committed to resourcing and raising biblical literacy in the local church. In any given week this might see her introducing the book of Lamentations for a general audience at a performance of Tallis' Lamentations; speaking on biblical approaches to suffering at a youth event; or leading the weekly liturgy on a local open access radio station.
