Help & Info

Her.meneutics, edited by Kate Shellnutt and Katelyn Beaty, provides news and analysis from the perspective of evangelical women. We cover news stories and books related to international justice and evangelism, pregnancy and sexual ethics, marriage, parenting, and celibacy, pop culture, health and body image, raising girls, and women in the church and parachurch.

Who We Are

Her.meneutics is devoted to what evangelical women think.

What's an evangelical woman? For a long time she's been defined as a Christ follower who wants quick devotionals over coffee, tips for managing a toddler, inspiring stories of moms who've made a difference—and little else.

We believe evangelical women want more. At least we do. With robust theological viewpoints and a commitment to the local church, Her.meneutics strives to equip women (and not merely a few men) to engage the world of ideas, cultural trends, and global news through the lens of Christian faith. We couldn't do this without our outstanding regular contributors, who consistently tackle the topics of the day with biblical wisdom and grace.

Her.meneutics regularly covers sexual ethics, marriage and parenting, pop culture, health and body image, spirituality, justice, and women in the church and parachurch. We have also covered race, disability, clothing, cancer, animal compassion, Barbie, and sports. In fact, there are few topics our writers won't touch—so long as they are timely, thought-provoking, and inspire a deeper understanding of the Christian story.

Some of the most popular Her.meneutics "classics" include:

"How 'Modest Is Hottest' Is Hurting Christian Women," by Sharon Hodde Miller

"Doing Authentic Ministry with My Smokin' Hot Bride," by Karen Swallow Prior

"Why Women Are Obsessed with Pinterest," by Laura Leonard

"The Dark Side of Healthy Eating," by Rachel Marie Stone

"Guarding Your Marriage without Dissing Women," by Gina Dalfonzo

"Another Assault on Little Girls," by Jennifer Grant

There's a different conversation happening about what an evangelical woman is and what she wants and thinks. We hope you'll join in.
