Welcome to Scholarly Wanderlust by Dr. Erica Mongé-Greer

New Year’s Greetings & Goals

With the fall term behind me, I am forging the path for my next great adventure. This year I plan to keep up with blog posts that summarize and share scholarly insight on biblical, theological, and related topics. I am also blog casting many posts and interviewing other scholars on my podcast. Since I also just acquired a large stack of sci-fi novels, you can expect posts about sci-fi themes and religious themes in science fiction. My forthcoming book on religion in Battlestar Galactica (TRS) is tentatively slated to come out later this year. Onward in 2022!

Feel free to browse my blogs on various topics and weigh in the discussion whenever you are inspired. Please consider submitting your email address to receive occasional updates. Meanwhile, I wish you the best on your journey. Find a place of peace in this world.
