The Rev. Dr. Molly T. Marshall is President and Professor of Theology and Spiritual Formation at Central Baptist Seminary in Shawnee, KS. A life-long Baptist, albeit an “ecumaniac” as her students call her, Dr. Marshall’s vocation has not only included theological education, but youth ministry, campus ministry and congregational ministry.
Dr. Marshall has embraced and taught Benedictine Spirituality for over 30 years, citing the practice as one that at first, carried her through challenging transitions, and has continued to be a formative influence in her life and work to this day. She has published a multitude of writings including chapters in books and commentaries, dictionary and journal articles, and a nine volume collection of reflections on the lectionary. She is also a featured columnist for the Baptist News Global.
When she is not teaching, leading, writing around the world, Molly can been found enjoying tennis, books and English choral music, and cooking for loved ones and other brave souls. Her “Make Your Bed in Sheol” chili will revise your eschatology. She shares her home with Ellyw, a theologically attentive Welsh Terrier.
