Helen Rhee is an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Westmont College. She earned her B.A in History at UC Berkeley and her M.Div. and Ph.D. at Fuller Theological Seminary. Rhee specializes in early Christian history, especially the second and third century Christian literature, focusing on the diverging Christian self- identities in relation to Greco-Roman culture and society. Her first book, Early Christian Literature: Christ and Culture in the Second and Third Centuries (Routledge, 2005) explores the very issue. Her scholarly interest, however, extends to the New Testament (minor) and other periods and aspects of Christian history as well. Her most recent book, Loving the Poor, Saving the Rich: Wealth, Poverty, and Early Christian Formation (Baker Academic, 2012) examines and analyzes early Christian attitudes toward and practices involving wealth and poverty and how these contributed to shaping Christian identities within larger Greco-Roman and Jewish contexts. Rhee received the Bruce and Adaline Bare Teacher of the Year Award in Humanities, 2010.
