Book Giveaway Winner Announcement: Ellen White Wins!

Winner of Our Book Giveaway

The Winner! Dr. Ellen White

Dr. Ellen White won our book giveaway of Women, Leadership, and the Bible: How Do I Know What to Believe? A Practical Guide to Biblical Interpretation!


Who Is Our Winner, Dr. Ellen White?

Our giveaway winner, Ellen White, was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, and began her career in psychology. She holds a B.A. in psychology from York University and a masters in counseling from Tyndale Seminary. It was there that her love of biblical studies began and she went back to do an M.Div. in Biblical Studies and a Th.M. in Old Testament. Dr. White’s Ph.D. is in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament from the University of St. Michael’s College.

Ellen began excavating in the first year of her doctoral program, and since then has served in various roles from dig administrator to director of education at three dig sites in Israel. She taught at the undergraduate and graduate level at five different schools in North America and was a visiting scholar in Goettingen Germany this past year. This fall, Dr. White will take a post as the Senior Editor for the Biblical Archaeology Society in Washington, DC.

She has published several peer-reviewed articles, dictionary articles, and book reviews, and has published a book: Yahweh’s Council: Its Structure and Membership. Currently,  she is working on obtaining her visas and other necessaries to live and work in the United States and, in the meantime, has several new book projects: exploring (1)  the historical impact of gender on interpretation, and (2) the relationship between biblical studies and archaeology. 

Note from Dr. Eastman: “I had no idea Ellen was to be taking a position at BAS this fall when I created a blog post on how archaeology can inform our interpretation. None. I promise. But it’s certainly convenient…”

Congratulations, Ellen, and thanks for participating!
