LISA HARPER - @lisadharper


Rarely are the terms hilarious storyteller and theological scholar used in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person but then again, Lisa Harper is anything but stereotypical! She’s had eleven books published including A Perfect Mess: Why You Don’t Have To Worry About Being Good Enough For God and Believing Jesus: Are You Willing To Risk Everything?. Additionally, she’s authored three best-selling video-based Bible study curriculums with LifeWay: Malachi: A Love That Never Lets Go, Hebrews: The Nearness of King Jesus, and Mark: The Jesus We're Aching For.
