As an Assistant Professor in New Testament, Andrew’s teaching goal is to help students to be able to interpret the Bible in its historical context, in the context of the entire redemptive-history of scripture, and for our own context. We must understand the flow of God’s story with its climax in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus before we can make sense of our own lives. This story defines the purpose and character of the church as outposts of God’s kingdom and of believers as true and devoted disciples, faithfully playing our part in the grand narrative. Andrew is excited to help students begin this journey from interpretation to life and ministry.
Andrew received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion and Philosophy from Hillsdale College in 2002, a Master of Arts degree in Biblical and Theological Studies from Criswell College in 2005, a Master of Library Science degree from the University of North Texas in 2006, and a Ph.D at the University of Wales.
Andrew has previously worked as a Latin and Greek teacher, an interim pastor, and the Director of Library Services and Assistant Professor of Biblical and Theological Research at Criswell College. Andrew most recently served as the Associate Pastor of Biblical Theology and Spiritual Growth at Foothills Fellowship in Albuquerque.
Andrew recently relocated to Austin with his wife Allison and his five children, Elena, Jude, Gwyneth, Eden, and Zeke. He enjoys good, strong coffee and good books in biblical studies and theology. He also enjoys going out to dinner with his wife every once in a while and reading quality children’s literature with his kids. Allison is a figurative sculptor.
