Conductor The Rev'd Dr William Countryman
Dr Countryman is professor emeritus of Biblical studies at Church Divinity School of the Pacific (CDSP), where he was the Sherman Divinity School Professor in Biblical Studies. He writes and speaks on a wide range of topics, ranging from the Bible to gay and lesbian spirituality. He is perhaps best known for Dirt, Greed, and Sex: a study of sexual ethics in the New Testament and today (recently reissued in a revised edition), and for Living on the Border of the Holy, which explores the nature of ministry, lay and ordained. He has recently published Interpreting the Truth: Changing the Paradigm of Biblical Studies, which argues for better conversation between church and academy.
