Dr. Craig L. Blomberg

Dr. Craig Blomberg is Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary in Littleton, Colorado. He holds the B.A. from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, the M.A. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, and the Ph.D. from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland.

Craig is the author of twelve books and has co-authored or co-edited eight more, along with dozens of journal articles and chapters in multi-author works. His books include three on the historical reliability and interpretation of the gospels (one specializing in John), two on interpreting and preaching the parables, three commentaries (on Matthew, 1 Corinthians and James), a textbook on Jesus and the Gospels and another on Acts through Revelation, three books on material possessions in the Bible, and a handbook on New Testament exegesis.

Craig and his wife Fran have two daughters: Elizabeth (Little), who is married and is a student at Denver Seminary; and Rachel, who is doing graduate studies in molecular biology at the University of Pennsylvania. The Blombergs like to travel, especially during summers, often combining vacation with overseas ministry. Although he faithfully roots for Colorado sports teams, he is also a lifelong Chicago Cubs baseball fan and still fantasizes about seeing them in a World Series some year before he dies.
