About the Speaker

She is a lover of the Bible--its God, its words, and its history. Her new book series from Harvest House Publishers, The Red-Haired Archaeologist, will begin in 2021 with the release of Digging Israel. Previous books include Mary Magdalene Never Wore Blue Eye Shadow: How to Trust the Bible when Truth and Traditions Collide (Harvest House, 2019) and Barren among the Fruitful: Navigating Infertility with Hope, Wisdom, and Patience (Thomas Nelson, 2014). She contributed to The Voice Bible as a translator, writer, and editor; and she has been a theological reviewer, content editor, ghost writer, and co-writer for popular Christian authors. Amanda and her husband, David, live in Tennessee with their always-entertaining basset hound, Copper.
