    Brian Peterson, PhD
    Assistant Professor of
    Old Testament

    After spending over a decade as a licensed carpenter after high school, Peterson felt God calling him to a life of ministry. He received his PhD from Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto in Hebrew Bible. Peterson then taught at Gambia Theological Institute in West Africa, as well as spending a year as an Assistant Professor of Old Testament at Prairie Bible College in Alberta, Canada. He joined the Lee faculty in 2011, where he presently teaches a variety of Old Testament classes and Hebrew at the undergraduate and master's degree levels.

    His areas of interest and academic research include the following: Deuteronomistic History, the Pentateuch, Ezekiel, and the intersection of Archaeology and the Bible.

    He is the author of many publications including Ezekiel in Context (Wipf and Stock Publications, 2012), The Authors of the Deuteronomic History (Fortress Press, 2014), and John’s Use of Ezekiel (Fortress Press, 2015).

    Peterson spends a portion of his summers involved with archaeology in Israel where Lee students often join him for two- and three-week digs. He is married to Christine Curley and they have three children, Madeline, Mark, and Kevin.
