Jo-Ann Badley follows Mary through John’s Gospel, grieving and rejoicing in the hour of her Son.
Jo-Ann Badley is the dean of theology at Ambrose University in Calgary, Alberta, where she also teaches New Testament and hermeneutics. She loves Mary and is writing a Protestant theology of the mother of Jesus. She serves on the Canadian Evangelical-Roman Catholic Dialogue and is interested in ecumenical conversations.
Jo-Ann Badley and Stephanie Neill propose that the current interest in food in North American culture redresses cultural patterns of detachment in ways consonant with New Testament practices of communion, calling us to gratitude and recognition of the relational character of human living.
