Before coming to Tyndale, Dr. Gentles taught at York University’s Glendon College. Most of his scholarly research has been on the English Revolution, about which he has written many articles and four books: The New Model Army in England, Ireland and Scotland, 1645-1653 (Basil Blackwell, 1992); Soldiers, Writers and Statesmen of the English Revolution (Cambridge University Press, 1998); The English Revolution and the Wars in the Three Kingdoms, 1638-1652 (Pearson, 2007) and Oliver Cromwell: God’s Warrior and the English Revolution (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011). His most recent books, of which he is the co-author, are Complications: Abortion's Impact on Women (deVeber, 2013) and It's Not That Simple: Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide Today (deVeber, 2015). He is also a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and a recipient of several major research grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
From 1983 until 2017 Dr. Gentles was Research Director of the deVeber Institute for Bioethics in Toronto. He is currently revising and extending to the Restoration (1660) his book on the New Model Army for Yale University Press.
