Dr. Jim Coakley joins us from down in Florida where the temps are up and we’re down for a discussion of “up and down” in the Bible. Dr. Coakley helps us slow down to observe words we might just read through so that we can grow in understanding and step up our Bible study skills!
Dr. Jim Coakley has taught for sixteen years as professor of Bible at Moody Theological Seminary specializing in Old Testament and Biblical Languages. Prior to Moody he was involved in pastoral ministry for thirteen years. He has traveled to Israel multiple times as a tour leader and has also toured throughout Turkey. Jim is married to Gayle and they have two grown children and two grandchildren. He was a contributor to the Moody Bible Commentary and is working on a second doctoral degree through the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. He also has a special interest in how the use of technology intersects with Biblical studies and has written articles and spoken at conferences on that topic.
