The Rev. Dr. Renita J. Weems is a biblical scholar, an academic administrator, a writer, a blogger, an ordained minister,
and a public intellectual whose scholarly insights into modern faith, biblical texts, and the role of spirituality in
everyday lives make her a much sought after writer and speaker.
Upon her graduation in 1989 from Princeton Theological Seminary, Dr. Weems became the first African American woman to earn a Ph.D. in Old Testament.
She is the author of several widely-acclaimed books on women's spirituality and wholeness, including the influential Just A Sister Away. She currently serves as Vice-President and Academic Dean at American Baptist College in Nashville.
