Lace Williams-Tinajero, author of “The Reshaped Mind: Searle, the Biblical Writers, and Christ’s Blood,” (Brill, 2011) writes about the connection between language and the diverse ways people think of, speak of, believe in, and ultimately worship God.
Her other interest is spirituality and parenting a child with special needs, especially learning to manage the fear in relation to her son’s incurable tumor condition, she said.
Williams-Tinajero is a native of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and grew up in the Catholic and Lutheran traditions. She completed a M.A. degree in Doctrine and Theology at Luther Seminary in St. Paul (2000). She earned a PhD in Theology, with concentrations in New Testament and Systematic Theology, at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif. (2008). Her areas of research include biblical interpretation and speech act theory, and the ‘blood’ language in scripture.
In 2005 she authored “Christian Unity: The Communal Participation in Christ’s Body and Blood.”
She resides in Spokane Valley with her husband Ernesto (Tito) and son Tito Jr.
