amy-peelerAmy Peeler currently serves as Associate Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College. From her first Biblical Studies class, Amy knew that she was called to be a lifelong student and teacher of the Bible. She pursued this calling by attaining a B.A. in Biblical Languages from Oklahoma Baptist University and an M. Div. and Ph. D. in Biblical Studies from Princeton Theological Seminary. Her primary research focus is the Epistle to the Hebrews. This research has sparked explorations in ancient rhetoric, the use of the Old Testament in the New, Israel’s sacrificial system, atonement, family and inheritance in the Ancient World, and theological language. In April of 2016 she was ordained and currently serves as Associate Rector at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Geneva, IL. From her explorations of the Bible for the church and the academy she loves to discover “new insights into the character of God and his ways with the world.”
