Katie Heffelfinger studied theology at Asbury Theological Seminary and Princeton Theological Seminary. She holds a PhD in Hebrew Bible from Emory University. Katie’s research interests include the potential for biblical poetry to enliven theological imagination, lyric approaches to ancient Near Eastern poems, and the role of memory in the development of exilic period theology. She has written a recently published article on the poetic juxtaposition of the Servant and Zion in Second Isaiah. An article on Second Isaiah’s reuse of the Lamentations’ poetic imagery is forthcoming. Katie is currently writing a commentary on Isiah 40 –66 and a book on Salvation in the Hebrew Bible.
