About the Author

Fiona Gregson is an ordained Anglican whose UK ministry has been mainly in areas of multiple deprivation. She has lived and worked in several African countries. These experiences motivate her concern for Christian engagement with poverty and possessions. She holds a BA (Oxford) and a PhD (London School of Theology). She is based in the Diocese of Birmingham and splits her time between the church, teaching, and caring for her young daughter.
