On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast we’re doing a deep dive into one passage of Scripture to continue honing our hermeneutical skillset, by reading, studying, and applying a challenging passage together. Elizabeth Groves, known as “Libbie”, is lecturer in biblical Hebrew at Westminster Theological Seminary. Her academic interests include Hebrew and Old Testament exegesis, as well as counseling those who have gone through the loss of a husband or wife. She has four grown and married children, spread across the Northeast, and is expecting her eighth grandchild. Her husband Al passed away in 2007 from melanoma, and Libbie had the opportunity to write about that experience in her book Grief Undone: A Journey with God and Cancer and in a mini-book entitled Becoming a Widow: The Ache of Missing Your Other Half, both from New Growth Press. She treasures visiting family, and if she had any free time, she would spend it reading or watching movies.
