Dr. Harris taught as an adjunct at TEDS from 2001 to 2006. She has taught extensively at retreats, conferences, and adult Sunday school classes, and also teaches Bible and theology classes in various overseas contexts. Prior to coming to Trinity, Dr. Harris was the managing editor of the Hoover Digest, a quarterly academic journal covering public policy, economics, and foreign affairs, published by the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. For the first five years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, she coordinated a program, funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts, that brought young diplomats from former Soviet-satellite countries to Stanford for four-month study programs. As an undergraduate, she double-majored in International Relations and French Studies. Prior to coming to Trinity, she was also extensively involved in ministry.
Her dissertation topic was The Eternal Inheritance in Hebrews: The Appropriation of the Old Testament Inheritance Theme by the Author of Hebrews. She is currently writing the volume on Hebrews for the Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (Broadman & Holman). She recently wrote the article on “Priest,” in the NIV Study Bible. Her research interests include Hebrews, Revelation, Greek syntax, linguistics, hermeneutics, Second Temple Literature (particularly apocalyptic literature), and archaeology. In July 2010, Dr. Harris became the editor of the Trinity Journal.
