Wendy Widder Huisken is an author and educator who loves teaching the Bible to people who just want to learn more. She has a PhD in Near Eastern studies, an MA in Hebrew and Semitic Studies, and an MDiv with an emphasis in educational ministries. She has spent much of her career in the classroom, beginning with fifth graders and then making her way into adult education in college, seminary, the church, and online environments.
Wendy is the author of a number of books: two books for singles, Living Whole without a Better Half and A Match Made in Heaven: How Singles and the Church Can Live Happily Ever After (Kregel Publications), and she coauthored a book with her dad for Christian educators, The Forest and the Trees: Helping Teachers Integrate a Biblical Worldview across the Curriculum (Wipf and Stock). She wrote Daniel in two Zondervan commentary series (The Story of God; Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament), and she has contributed several resources on Daniel to Lexham Press.
Her greatest passions are writing biblically and theologically solid materials for laypeople, as well as teaching the Bible in an engaging way. She blogs occasionally at wendywidder.com.
