John Goldingay is the David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament in the School of Theology and has been at Fuller since 1997. Before coming to Fuller, Goldingay was principal and a professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at St John’s Theological College in Nottingham, England. He studied theology at Oxford and was ordained and worked in a church in London.

Goldingay’s most recent publications include the 17-volume Old Testament For Everyone series (Westminster John Knox/SPCK (2010– ), which provides clear, concise explanations of all the Old Testament Scriptures; Key Questions about Interpretation (Baker, 2011); and Key Questions about Christian Faith (Baker, 2010). He is the author of a three-volume Old Testament Theology (InterVarsity Press, 2003–2009), Men Behaving Badly (2000), After Eating the Apricot (1996), Models for the Interpretation of Scripture (1995), and Models for Scripture (1994), as well as commentaries on Daniel, Isaiah, and Psalms.

He holds membership in the Society of Biblical Literature and the Society for Old Testament Study, and serves on the Task Force on Biblical Interpretation in the Anglican Communion and the editorial board for the Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies.

On his webpage Goldingay says, “For me, being a professor is a subset of being a pastor, and I am also priest-in-charge of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Pasadena. I was married to Ann for 43 years until she died in 2009; I have two married sons. I am now married to Kathleen Scott.”
