Biography: Kirsten Sanders (PhD, Emory University) is a theologian interested in Christology and questions of material embodiment. She is passionate about teaching specialists and non-specialists how to think theologically.  She is working on an introduction to theological anthropology for laypeople and a book that examines the relationship between Christology and women’s embodiment.  She lives with her three children and husband in Wenham, MA, where you can usually find her playing with her dogs or working in her vegetable garden if the weather is good, and reading theology if it’s not.
