A not only is Dr. Sherri Brown a New Testament professor at Creighton University, but she is a lay woman who is passionate about scripture and excited to be a part of the Lay Mission Project’s formation team. After undergraduate study at Washington and Lee University and early graduate work at Yale University Divinity School and Columbia University School of Social Work, and following a stint in the US Peace Corps and several years working in the international development field, Sherri Brown returned to graduate school at the Catholic University of America to pursue a PhD in Biblical Studies. Her research interests focus primarily on the Gospel and Letters of John and she is currently co-writing what will be her third book in that area as well as co-editing a volume on Johannine ethics. She also writes on the letters and theology of Paul and will soon embark upon a project in 2 Peter. She loves traveling and facilitating study internationally, particularly in the lands of the Bible.
