Dave Lamb loves to teach the Bible. This passion was developed during twenty years of ministry with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, first as a student at Stanford (BA, MS), and then on IV staff in LA and Philadelphia. Studies at Fuller (MDiv) and Oxford (MPhil, DPhil) deepened his love for
the Old Testament. He has been teaching OT at Missio Seminary (formerly Biblical) in Philadelphia since 2006. His dissertation, Righteous Jehu and his Evil Heirs was published in 2007 (Oxford). He wrote two popular books, God Behaving Badly: Is the God of the Old Testament Angry, Sexist and Racist
(IVP, 2011 revised 2021), and Prostitutes and Polygamists: A Look at Love, Old Testament Style (Zondervan, 2015). He also wrote a textbook, The Historical Writings (with Mark Leuchter, Fortress, 2016) and a commentary, 1-2 Kings (Zondervan, 2021). He became the Allan A. MacRae Professor of Old Testament in 2016 and the Dean of the Faculty in 2017.
