Daniel B. Wallace

Senior Professor of New Testament Studies

BA, Biola University, 1975; ThM, Dallas Theological Seminary, 1979; PhD, 1995.

Dr. Wallace, a four-generation Californian, former surfer, and pastor, is a member of the Society of New Testament Studies, the Institute for Biblical Research, the Society of Biblical Literature, and the Evangelical Theological Society, of which he was president for 2016. He has written, edited, or otherwise contributed to more than thirty books, and has published articles in New Testament Studies, Novum Testamentum, Biblica, Westminster Theological Journal, and the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society. His Exegetical Syntax of the New Testament is the standard intermediate Greek grammar and has been translated into several languages. He is the executive director of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (www.csntm.org), an institute whose initial purpose is to preserve Scripture by taking digital photographs of all known Greek New Testament manuscripts. When not involved in scholarly pursuits, speaking engagements, or entertaining students at his home, he and his wife, Pati, enjoy spending time with their four boys, three daughters-in-law, three granddaughters, and one Labrador.
