Lita Cosner became a Christian in 2002, partially as a result of creation materials she found through Creation Ministries International, which answered her questions about the Bible and Christianity (see her own account). She joined CMI as Information Officer in 2010, and is a prolific contributor to their website, Creation magazine, and the in-depth Journal of Creation. She is well-known for her gracious, yet challenging responses to questioners and often detractors who contact creation.com.
Lita is a specialist in New Testament studies and obtained a B.A. (summa cum laude) in Biblical Studies from Oklahoma Wesleyan University in 2008. She received an M.A. (cum laude) in New Testament from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in 2012. Her thesis is titled Jesus the Honorable Broker: A Social-Scientific Exegesis of Matthew 15:21–28.
Her passion is interpreting the New Testament in a way that is understandable to the average Christian, as well as showing how the New Testament authors used the teachings of the Old Testament as the foundation for their theology, particularly in the area of Creation. She is the co-author of the booklets How Did We Get Our Bible? and Gay Marriage: Right or Wrong?. Her talk, Creation in the New Testament and Why it Matters, is available as a video download.
