Barbara Golder

Award-winning Catholic author, physician, attorney, and bioethicist Barbara Golder brings together her front-line experiences with law and medicine and her Catholic faith. The result is a unique perspective on life lived out as a Christian in an increasingly secular world and a bridge between outlooks that all too often seem incompatible. She has an unusual gift for being able to see both sides of an intellectual divide, not compromising truth but finding a way forward so that people who have different perspectives can at least come to appreciate each other.

Dr. Golder speaks to Catholic life a variety of arenas: law, medicine, bioethics, family, corporate life, community, and the apostolate of everyday life. She is now a full-time writer and the author of two books in a series of mysteries that present the Catholic faith as something to be lived, however imperfectly.

A graduate of the University of Arizona (BS with honors in Chemistry 1972), the University of Florida College of Medicine (MD with honors, 1977), Stetson College of Law (cum laude, 1987) and the National Catholic Bioethics Center (Certificate in Bioethics with Honor, 2014), Dr. Golder lives in Tennessee with her husband of 43 years. She is currently the Director of Adult Faith Formation and Evangelization for the Minor Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul in Chattanooga, TN.
