Dennis R Edwards
Associate Professor of New Testament, North Park Theological Seminary
BS (Cornell University); MA, PhD (Catholic University of America)
Dr. Dennis Edwards is Associate Professor of New Testament at North Park University in Chicago, IL. Growing up in NYC, Dr. Edwards attended a storefront church whose pastor was an earnest, faithful, and dedicated spiritual leader. This example continued to inspire Dr. Edwards throughout college and his time spent teaching high school math and chemistry. Even after attending seminary, his desire to better understand scripture continued. Dr. Edwards says, “I pursued my PhD largely in an effort to quench my thirst for enlightenment and understanding of God’s Word.” Ordained through the Evangelical Covenant Church, Dr. Edwards brings a deep understanding of spiritual leadership to North Park. He also shares his diverse experiences as a church planter and pastor in Brooklyn, Minneapolis, and Washington D.C. with his students. Dr. Edwards is the author of What Is the Bible and How Do We Understand It? (2019) and the co-author of several titles, including The Story of God Bible Commentary on 1 Peter (2017), Might from the Margins: The Gospel's Power to Turn the Tables on Injustice (2020), and Perspectives on Paul: Five Views (2020).
