A Minnesota-based Episcopal priest, Lindsay has won over thirty awards for excellence in religious journalism, 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 book, Bible Women: All Their Words and Why They Matter, was co-sponsored by The Episcopal Church Women, and made headlines around the world. Other books include: The Scarlet Cord: Conversations With Gods Chosen Women, and The Spy on Noahs Ark: Bible Stories from the Inside Out.

 

She has served congregations in Massachusetts, Philadelphia and Minnesota, written/edited eight books, and was the long-term editor of Vestry Papers, published by the Episcopal Church Foundation. See more at www.lindsayhardinfreeman.com
