Dan Estes, Distinguished Professor of Old Testament

Distinguished Professor of Old Testament


Dr. Dan Estes was reared in a pastor's family in small towns in upstate New York. Because of the teaching he received from his parents, he came to know Christ as a child, and then the Lord used numerous experiences at summer camp, church, college, and ministry to continue to build into his life. Now as a Bible professor, he considers it a privilege to do for others what so many godly mentors did for him.
