Palmer, Elizabeth

Elizabeth is a pastor, theologian, and writer who currently serves as the Books Editor at the Christian Century magazine. Her book, Faith in a Hidden God: Luther, Kierkegaard, and the Binding of Isaac, was published in 2017 by Fortress Press. Before her call to the Christian Century, Elizabeth served as Lutheran Campus Pastor at the University of Chicago and as a hospital chaplain. She has a Ph.D. in Theology from the University of Chicago Divinity School and has also studied at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. She’s better at preaching law than gospel; better at asking difficult questions of Scripture than giving definitive answers; better at finding comfort in uncertainty than relying on certainty. But that’s only because a deep, abiding sense of God’s unfailing grace underlies everything she says and does.
