I interact with a lot of women who want to teach the Bible, but something holds them back. They seem to be waiting for a different stage of life, waiting until they are invited, waiting for the right situation, waiting until the kids are grown, waiting until they know everything they think they need to know to be able to stand up and teach.

Not Jackie Hill Perry. Perry is an incredible person, a godly woman, and a really compelling Bible teacher. We talked about her mentors (“the Pipe”), her method (ask questions of the text), her tools (her phone), as well as her new book, Gay Girl, Good God, in which she says she is “leveraging my story so you can see the gospel rightly.”

Editors’ note:
