Rev. Jennifer Butler is an author, speaker and the founder of Faith in Public Life, a network of faith leaders united in the pursuit of justice. Her latest book, Who Stole my Bible? Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny (2020), makes a biblical case for multi-faith, multiracial democracy in the face of rising white Christian Nationalism and authoritarianism in the U.S. and around the world. Her first book, Born Again: The Christian Right Globalized (2006), was among the first to document the globalization of the religious right. She chaired President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. She was named one of the “22 Faith Leaders to Watch in 2022” by Center for American Progress.
