Dr. Kate Common

is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Practical Theology at Methodist Theological School in Ohio and Louisville Institute scholar.

Coming out as gay woman in a fundamentalist Christian setting prompted a sense of call within Kate to pursue creating a more just Christianity. She left a successful corporate career as a designer to follow a dream of going to seminary. She earned an MA from Andover Newton Seminary and a Ph.D. in theology from Boston University. Kate integrates her creative practices with her theological work that focuses on social justice and the church.

These threads come together in her teaching and in her two current book projects, Undoing Conquest, Liberating Exodus: How a New History of Ancient Israel can Reshape Christianity, and Imagining Utopia: The Four Marks of a Queer Feminist Church.

Kate co-produced the documentary film Forging Voice: Conversations with Pioneering Feminist & Womanist Scholars in Religion, which explores gender, race, and theology through conversations with pioneering feminist and womanist scholars in religion.

Kate is currently working on her first book, Liberating Exodus & Undoing Conquest: How a New History of Ancient Israel can Help Reimagine Church
