Bex Canner is a theology student, a medical doctor practicing family medicine, an artist, and a survivor of a strict Plymouth Brethren upbringing. Canner has a resounding interest in the Bible and especially in up-ending the long-abiding tendency by scholars toward heteronormative patriarchal interpretation of the Hebrew scriptures, taking a fresh approach to the text and coaxing from it surprising messages of love, healing, and redemption. Canner identifies as non-binary and queer. They live on the windswept south coast of Wellington, New Zealand with their family and three cats.
