Beth Stovell is Professor of Old Testament at Ambrose Semianry. Born in Italy, growing up in Austin, Texas, she has studied the ancient world, the Bible, Christian Spirituality, and English Literature in the United States and Canada.

Isaiah, Ezekiel, and the Minor Prophets) and in John’s Gospel, John’s Letters, and Revelation. She cares about bridging the gap between the academy and the Church.
