Sarah Bessey is the author of the best-selling and critically acclaimed books Jesus Feminist and Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith. She is a sought-after speaker at churches, conferences, and universities around the world. Sarah also serves as President of the Board for Heartline Ministries in Haiti.

An award-winning blogger, Sarah has also contributed to the “NIV Bible for Women: Fresh Insights for Thriving in Today’s World”; “Mother Letters: Sharing the Laughter, Joy, Struggles, and Hope”; “Soul Bare: Stories of Redemption”; and “What a Woman is Worth.” Her writing has appeared in The Huffington Post, The High Calling, Conversations Journal,, CT Women: Christianity Today’s Blog for Women, Today’s Christian Woman, and she has commented on religion for The Atlantic, The Christian Post, Christianity Today, The National Post, and The Washington Post among others.

She lives in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada with her husband and their four children collectively referred to as “The Tinies” – even though one of them is already taller than her. A self-described “recovering know-it-all,” she is an avid knitter, a hockey fan (Go Bruins), a bookworm, a church lady, a total hugger, and embarrassingly devoted to the television show Doctor Who.
