Fleming Rutledge is a preacher and teacher known throughout the US, Canada, and parts of the UK. She is the author of eight books, all from Eerdmans Publishing. Her most recent book, The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ, is the product of the work of a lifetime and is being described as a new classic on the subject.
One of the first women to be ordained to the priesthood of the Episcopal Church, she served for fourteen years on the clergy staff at Grace Church on Lower Broadway at Tenth Street, New York City.
Fleming and her husband celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2009 and have two daughters and two grandchildren. She is a native of Franklin, Virginia.
Advent: The Once and Future Coming of Jesus Christ, Fleming’s newest book, will be published by Eerdmans in September 2018.
Fleming’s recent book, The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Christ, won the award for Best Reference Book of 2015 from the Academy of Parish Clergy. Six months later, it was named Book of the Year 2016 by Christianity Today.
Fleming’s 2012 book, And God Spoke to Abraham, comes with exceptional endorsements and is one of only two major Old Testament sermon collections published in English in almost 40 years. (The other one, published in 2016, is Stewards of the Mysteries of God, by Patrick D. Miller [with a foreword by Fleming Rutledge]. A gem from earlier years is Gerhard von Rad’s Biblical Interpretations in Preaching [Abingdon, 1977]. It is a priceless treasure; get it if you can!)
