Dr Paula Gooder is a writer and lecturer in Biblical Studies.
Her research areas include the writings of Paul the Apostle (with a particular focus on 2 Corinthians), New Testament Interpretation
and the development of Ministry in the New Testament Period but her passion is to ignite people's enthusiasm for reading
the Bible today and so she lectures in subjects much wider than just her research interests.
She is the Theologian
in Residence for the Bible Society and also holds a number of honorary positions such as Canon Theologian of Birmingham and
Guildford Cathedrals, Lay Canon at Salisbury Cathedral, a Six preacher of Canterbury Cathedral, Vice president of the Bible
Society, Visiting lecturer at King's College, London, and Associate lecturer at St Mellitus College, London. She is a
Reader in the Church of England and a member of General Synod.
