Biblical scholar Dr Hilary Marlow is passionate about environmental issues and how Christian faith can motivate us to care for God’s world. She works as a senior researcher at The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion with a focus on creation texts and teaches Old Testament and biblical Hebrew at the University of Cambridge.
