Marion Taylor was raised in Toronto and returned in 1986 to teach Old Testament at Wycliffe College following graduate studies at Yale University. Her doctoral thesis on the history of Old Testament studies at Princeton Seminary from 1820-1929 was supervised by Brevard Childs. Her interests in the history of the interpretation of the Bible continue, centering more recently on women interpreters of the Bible. In 2006 she published a collection of the writings of fifty forgotten women interpreters of the stories of women in Genesis, Let her Speak for Herself: Nineteenth-century Women Writing on Women in Genesis with Heather Weir. She co-edited Recovering Nineteenth-Century Women Interpreters, a volume of essays on nineteenth-century women interpreters with Christiana de Groot of Calvin College, published in the SBL's symposium series. Her award winning Handbook of Women Biblical Interpreters: a historical and biographical guide (2012) provides an exciting new resource for those interested in the history of the reception of the biblical texts and theology. She is also preparing anthologies of nineteenth-century women's writings on the women in the gospels and the women in Joshua and Judges. She has received several research grants to support her projects related to women interpreters of Scripture. She is currently writing a commentary on Ruth and Esther for Zondervan's The Story of God Bible Commentary series. She is married to Glen Taylor who also teaches Old Testament at Wycliffe College. They have three adult children. Marion loves to spend time reading, writing and walking their dog at their cottage in northern Ontario.
