The Presbyterian Publishing Corporation is pleased to announce that the Rev. Bridgett Green will begin work as acquisitions editor for biblical studies on July 1. Green, a doctoral candidate in New Testament at Vanderbilt, will work part-time until she completes her Ph.D., at which point she will become a full-time editor with the Press.
While at PPC, Green will focus on developing authors and projects in biblical studies for the Westminster John Knox Press book imprint.
“We are thrilled to be adding Bridgett to our editorial team,” said David Dobson, vice president for publishing. “She is a gifted scholar with a wide network of connections throughout the academy and the church. While serving as an intern for the Press, she demonstrated a natural affinity for academic publishing. Our authors will be delighted to get to know her.”
“I am very excited to work with a team dedicated to excellence in academic and ecclesial publishing,” added Green. “I am looking forward to contributing to both the church and academy through this outstanding organization.”
Green is a doctoral student in New Testament and Early Christianity and a fellow in the Program of Theology and Practice at Vanderbilt University. She holds a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary and a bachelor’s degree from Davidson College. Prior to her studies at Vanderbilt, Green was an associate for racial-ethnic women’s ministries for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). In 2011 she served as an intern for PPC in a program for promising racial-ethnic seminarians set up by the former PPC board chair Bob Bohl. She serves on the board of trustees of Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and volunteers with the Fund for Theological Education’s Volunteers Exploring Vocations program. She grew up in Columbia, S.C., and is a teaching elder member of Charlotte Presbytery.
