Morna Hooker was born in Beddington on 19 May 1931. She went to Bristol university where she graduated with first class honours in theology, and then earned her MA. She worked for a PhD degree at the University of Manchester, then at the University of Durham. She became a Research Fellow in Arts at Durham. In 1961 she was elected into a temporary, then permanent lectureship at King's College London. In 1970, she left for a lectureship in Theology at University of Oxford, with a fellowship at Linacre College, Oxford.
She was Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity within the University of Cambridge from 1976 to 1998, becoming the first woman to hold the Cambridge degree of D.D., and as of 1998 is Professor Emerita.

She remains a Fellow of Robinson College, having joined the fellowship as a founding Fellow in 1977, and is also a Fellow of King's College London (1979) and an honorary Fellow of Linacre College, Oxford.
Hooker was the first woman to be elected President of the Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas, an international society of New Testament scholars (1988). She was the first woman to become a joint editor of The Journal of Theological Studies.
Her scholarly interests lie in early Christian thought in the setting of Jewish biblical inheritance. Her research focuses in particular on the Epistles of Paul and the Gospel according to Mark, as well as on Christology. Her theological standpoint on soteriology is Arminian.
