London School of Theology (LST) is delighted to announce that Senior Lecturer, Steve Walton, has been appointed Professor of New Testament Studies.
Steve served on a church staff, in student ministry with UCCF, advised people on God's call with the Church Pastoral Aid Society, was a househusband, a bishop's chaplain, and lectured at Bedford College and St John’s College, Nottingham before joining the faculty at LST in 1999.
Steve’s passion is to help others engage with the NT for themselves, and he is therefore an enthusiastic teacher of Greek. He co-authored a Gospels and Acts textbook, Exploring the New Testament, Vol.1, which is now in a second (revised) edition (2011), as well as writing a scholarly study of Acts and 1 Thessalonians, Leadership and Lifestyle, and a book on vocation for all Christians, A Call to Live. He is currently working on the Word Biblical Commentary on Acts.
Steve said, "I am greatly honoured and delighted to become Professor of New Testament at LST. My recognition as professor underlines the School's commitment to scholarly biblical research and teaching within a Christian framework: we see continuing careful study and reflection as vital to the task of training and equipping people to serve God and God's people in today's changing and varied world."
Chris Jack, Acting Principal, said: "I warmly congratulate Steve Walton for this deserved recognition of his academic credentials and standing. I also rejoice in the way that this appointment reflects the calibre of the faculty we are privileged to have here at LST. As well as honouring Steve in an appropriate manner, the award of this personal chair is a genuine indication of LST's ongoing commitment to academic excellence."
