Frederica Mathewes-Green

August 28, 2019

Since its inauguration in 2008, the King Institute for Faith and Culture has sought to foster conversation about things that matter, joining town and gown as we bring guests who work at the intersections of Christian faith and culture: artists and ministers, scholars and writers, politicians and prophets.

Frederica Mathewes-Green has published 10 books and over 700 essays, in such diverse publications as the Washington Post, Christianity Today, Smithsonian, and the Wall Street Journal.

She has been a regular commentator for National Public Radio (NPR), a columnist for the Religion News Service,, and Christianity Today, and a podcaster for Ancient Faith Radio. She was also a consultant for VeggieTales. She has appeared as a speaker over 500 times, including at Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Wellesley, Cornell, Calvin, Baylor, and Westmont.

She has been interviewed over 700 times, in venues including PrimeTime Live, NPR, PBS, Time, Newsweek, and the New York Times. She lives with her husband, the Rev. Gregory Mathewes-Green, in Johnson City, Tennessee.
