More About David W. Baker, T. Desmond Alexander & Bruce K. Waltke
PROFESSOR OF OLD TESTAMENT AND SEMITIC LANGUAGES
Dr. Baker is a brilliant professor, whose classes are stretching and informative. He is the author of a long list of works and is recognized as an international Old Testament scholar. One of his most fulfilling academic achievements is as an editor, helping others achieve publishing success.
In his 25+ years at Ashland Theological Seminary, Dr. Baker finds that he most appreciates the diversity of ATS. In one of his hermeneutics classes, he had the privilege of studying with Protestant, Catholic and Greek Orthodox students. Discussing a topic such as canon was enriched through having at least three different canons and perspectives within the same class.
Dr. Baker had an interesting journey leading up to his position at ATS. At the end of the apartheid era, Dr. Baker was teaching in South Africa. Unfortunately, the social and political situation was deteriorating and he feared for the safety of his family. That's when God opened the door for them to migrate to Ashland, where, among cornfields and Amish buggies, there wasn't much of a safety threat!
Beyond teaching and writing, Dr. Baker enjoys traveling, particularly to New Zealand, the Pacific Northwest and Salzburg, Austria. He also finds time to watch British dramas and police procedurals, read, listen to a bit of classical or soft rock music and spend time with his family, including three adorable granddaughters.
David W. Baker currently resides in the state of Ohio. David W. Baker was born in 1950.
