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.
- Why a site for women? Why not just have more women write for CT?
A women's blog allows Christianity Today magazine to highlight the unique perspective of Christian women while welcoming all interested parties to the conversation. And as Her.meneutics has grown since launching in 2009, it has had the indirect effect of incorporating more women's voices and interests into the magazine.
- Where does Her.meneutics fit under the Christianity Today umbrella?
Her.meneutics is Christianity Today magazine's site for evangelical women. Katelyn Beaty and Sarah Pulliam Bailey founded the site in 2009.
- Does Her.meneutics take a stance on women's ordination?
No, and neither has our parent magazine, Christianity Today. Our writers represent the range of thinking on gender roles and leadership in the church.
- How can I keep track of all the articles?
- Do you accept unsolicited manuscripts?
Yes. Please see the "Write for Us" page to see our editorial guidelines.
- I'm a man. Can I write for Her.meneutics?
Yes, if you can offer a compelling reason to write for a blog devoted to highlighting the perspective of evangelical women.
- Who are the "regular contributors"?
We have a diverse group of about 15 writers who have written for us consistently, but we frequently feature guest posts from a range of authors and bloggers.
- Where did the name "Her.meneutics" come from?
The name finally came after rounds of editorial meetings in 2009. After Esthergen, Feminarian, and Ms.iology were nixed, Katelyn came up with "Her.meneutics," which conjures "thinking Christian women" in one word. We have yet to actually cover the formal study of biblical interpretation, but we're always open to new ideas.
- How do we send you books to review?
We are inundated with books and cannot possibly cover them all. However, review copies may be sent to Christianity Today's mailing address.
- How do we interview one of your writers about a specific post?
Feel free to get in touch with the writer through her channels, or we can help connect you.
