Dr Cherryl Hunt

Cherryl Hunt was a molecular biologist for some years before completing a masters in theology and then working on a three year AHRC funded project concerning the uses of the Bible in environmental ethics (http://huss.exeter.ac.uk/theology/research/projects/uses/). The publications emerging from this project include a co-authored monograph (D.G. Horrell, C. Hunt & C. Southgate Greening Paul: Re-reading the Apostle in an Age of Ecological Crisis, Waco, TX: Baylor, 2010) and a co-edited collection of essays, (D.G. Horrell, C. Hunt, C. Southgate & F. Stavrakopoulou Ecological Hermeneutics: Biblical, Historical, and Theological Perspectives London/New York: T&T Clark, 2010). Cherryl is currently engaged in a research project funded by Bible Society, to evaluate the progress and outcomes of their Pathfinder programme, which is itself designed to promote a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Bible, resulting in growth in faith and a new level of cultural engagement. She also has interests in other areas of Christian reflection on bioethics, including the status of the early human embryo, stem cell research and human enhancement.
