Evans is an award winning Christian author, blogger and speaker whose blog receives over a quarter of a million visits per month and features a range of topics regarding faith, doubt and culture.

Evans’ books include “Evolving in Monkey Town: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned to Ask the Questions” (Zondervan 2010), which explores the relationship between faith, doubt and tough questions and “A Year of Biblical Womanhood: How a Liberated Woman Found Herself Sitting on Her Roof, Covering Her Head and Calling Her Husband Master” (Thomas Nelson, 2012), a 2012 New York Times best seller which documents her year of following all the Bible’s instructions for women as literally as possible. She has been featured in interviews on The View, The Today Show, NPR, Slate, The BBC, The Washington Post, The Guardian (UK), The Times London, The Huffington Post, Oprah.com, and was named one of Christianity Today’s “50 Women You Should Know” in Oct. 2012
