Shelly Rambo

Shelly Rambo is an associate professor of theology at the Boston University School of Theology. Her research and teaching interests focus on theologies of suffering, particularly as articulated in the Christian tradition. Working between the farewell discourse in the Gospel of John and contemporary trauma theory, her book Spirit and Trauma: A Theology of Remaining traces biblical witness to trauma through the figure of the Spirit remaining. Her new research develops a theology of resurrection wounds and considers how we might witness the unspeakable.
