Tyndale Seminary Faculty Updates

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

Tyndale Seminary has 24 faculty members researching and teaching across a diverse range of academic disciplines. The following are some recent contributions that faculty members have made to their field of research:

  • Dr. James Beverley, Professor of Christian Thought and Ethics, conducted research interviews in early February 2014 with key figures in the study of Islam. He travelled to the United Kingdom where he conducted interviews in London and Oxford, and went on a three-day trip to Berlin, Germany where he met with five scholars connected to the academic study of the Qur'an. The interviews form the backdrop for his new book (co-authored with Dr. Craig Evans of Acadia Divinity College) called Getting Jesus Right to be published by Castle Quay Books in April 2014.
  • From January 4 to 18, 2014, Dr. Fred Penney, Adjunct Professor of Homiletics, travelled to Sacramento, California and Seattle, Washington to teach homiletics. In each of these cities he taught a one-week intensive course in Expository Preaching to Ukrainian pastors. Each class had approximately 30 students.
  • In January 2014, Dr. Barbara Leung Lai, Professor of Old Testament, had a chapter published in the book Global Perspectives on the Old Testament, edited by Mark Roncace and Joseph Weaver (Pearson, 2014). The title of the chapter was “The Preacher and One’s Own Text-of-Life.” Also, she was appointed as co-chair of the Psychology and Biblical Studies section of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL), and as an Affiliate Faculty in the new PhD program of Logos Theological Seminary in Los Angeles, California.
