Marianne Meye Thompson
"The Church needs good scholarship that is attuned to theological and pastoral concerns as it struggles to be the Church of Jesus Christ," claims Marianne Meye Thompson, professor of New Testament at Fuller since 1985. An ordained minister as well as the author of several Bible commentaries, Thompson delights in teaching theology and biblical interpretation—and in helping students bring together Scripture, historical tradition, and the issues of our day. profile
“I am fanatically and fervently enthusiastic about every aspect of studying the Old Testament and its significance for the church today,” says John Goldingay, Fuller’s David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament. Author of the Old Testament for Everyone series currently being released by Westminster John Knox Press, Dr. Goldingay is an internationally respected authority on the Old Testament, and he loves to share that passion with his students. “Nothing thrills me more,” he says. profile
