Meet the Faith and Enrichment Conference 2020 Keynote Speaker- Dr. Bill Brown

William P. Brown is an ordained minister of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA.  Bill has also taught at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond and at Emory University.

His teaching and writing explore the intersecting issues of justice, creation care, and hope from biblical and theological perspectives.  Bill is the author of several books and numerous essays, including A Handbook to Old Testament Exegesis (WJK), Sacred Sense (Eerdmans), Wisdom’s Wonder (Eerdmans), The Seven Pillars of Creation (Oxford University), Seeing the Psalms (WJK), as well as editor of Engaging Biblical Authority (WJK).

Bill was recently a member of the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton (www.ctinquiry.org), where he worked collaboratively with scientists, philosophers, and ethicists exploring the “societal implications of astrobiology.”  He is currently working on a major commentary on the Psalms.  Bill is an avid Sunday School teacher and was a founding member of Earth Covenant Ministry, an organization of Presbyterian churches in the Atlanta area dedicated to creation care that is now part of Georgia Interfaith Power and Light (GIPL).  Gail and Bill are active at North Decatur Presbyterian Church and have two grown daughters, Ella and Hannah.
