Biography

Eunny Lee, PhD, joined the APU faculty in 2018 and teaches courses in biblical exegesis and biblical languages. She is the author of The Vitality of Enjoyment in Qohelet’s Theological Rhetoric (De Gruyter, 2012) and a series of articles that feature a feminist approach to the book of Ruth. Her current area of research is in the book of the Psalms (its poetry, performativity, and reception history). She loves to read biblical texts—closely and deeply—with students and communities of faith. Before coming to APU, she taught for 10 years at Princeton Theological Seminary.
